In the 21st century, when the name Disney is associated with a media conglomerate that has become the embodiment of cultural imperialism, it might be a surprise to see "Newman Laugh-O-Grams". This is probably Walt Disney's first credit. The title is based on the theater where it ran. It appears to be based on advertisements that ran in Kansas City, where Walt Disney lived before moving to Hollywood. He made a series of shorts called Laugh-O-Grams, but the studio folded after a year or two due to lack of funds. Once he moved to southern California, the rest is history.
Among the other people who worked at Laugh-O-Gram Studio were Ub Iwerks and Friz Freleng (the latter of whom famously became one of the directors of the Looney Tunes cartoons).
This short is nothing special, just a peek at Disney's early work.
