In Disney produced the short subject Alice in Cartoonland, a film combining both live action and animation that was intended to be the pilot film in a series.
Within weeks of its completion, Disney filed for bankruptcy and left Kansas City to establish himself in Hollywood as a cinematographer. Alice in Cartoonland turned out to be a surprise hit, and orders from distributors for more Alice films compelled Disney to reopen shop in Hollywood with the help of his brother Roy—a lifelong business partner.
The Kansas City team soon joined the Disneys in Californiaand the company produced mostly Alice films for the next four years.
In Disney began his first series of fully animated films, featuring the character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Throughout the s the company, renamed Walt Disney Productions inproduced cartoons featuring Mickey Mouse and his regular supporting players Donald DuckPluto, and Goofy, as well as the Silly Symphonies series—semiabstract cartoons featuring animation set to classical music or to the music of Carl Stalling, the brilliant musician who scored many of the best Disney and Warner Brothers cartoons.
The Silly Symphonies entry Flowers and Trees was the first cartoon produced in the three-colour Technicolor process, as well as the first animated short subject to be honoured with an Academy Award.
Snow White to Lady and the Tramp The continuing success of the studio emboldened Disney to make his riskiest move inwhen he began production on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Disney advocated a realistic approach to the medium, as opposed to the anarchic style of other animation studios.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Fantasia is a series of abstract vignettes set to classical compositions; it remains a controversial work, derided for its portentousness and praised for its stunning visual virtuosity.
Dumbo and Bambi also achieved recognition as masterpieces by effectively employing the devices Disney had first brought together in Pinocchio: The enthusiastic mood within the studio had been permanently dampened, and the studio produced little on the level of Pinocchio or Dumbo for the next decade, concentrating instead on short cartoons, nature documentaries, and features that combined live action and animation such as The Three Caballeros and Song of the South It was also about then that Disney established the distribution company Buena Vista Productions in order to ensure complete control over his films and their marketing.
The film won five Academy Awardsincluding a best actress Oscar for Julie Andrewsand was nominated in seven additional categories.
