Will Ub join Walt in Hollywood or pass on the opportunity? Plus, hear about the emergence of Walt Disney's first recurring cartoon character. All of that and more, on this episode of The Uncle Walt Podcast.

Great Chronological Biography
If you've read a few Walt Disney bios like I have, there's not a lot that's new here, but it's still fun to be reminded of things and details I'd forgotten in such a compact, digestible show. The episodes are quick and to-the-point. The production is passable, but it seems to be getting better as the episodes go along. The only reason I'm not giving that 5th star is that I was hoping to hear some commentary or some building of connections I hadn't considered.
I absolutely love the closing tagline. I won't spoil it for you, but it's a great point. Spot on.
