The Walt Disney Company
The Walt Disney Company known as Walt Disney or Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California. It is the world's largest media conglomerate in terms of revenue, ahead of NBCUniversal and WarnerMedia. Disney was founded on October 16, 1923 by brothers Walt and Roy O. Disney as the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio; the company established itself as a leader in the American animation industry before diversifying into live-action film production and theme parks. Since the 1980s, Disney has created and acquired corporate divisions in order to market more mature content than is associated with its flagship family-oriented brands; the company is known for its film studio division, Walt Disney Studios, which includes Walt Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight Pictures, Blue Sky Studios. Disney's other main divisions are Disney Parks and Products, Disney Media Networks, Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International.
Disney owns and operates the ABC broadcast network. The company has been a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average since 1991. Cartoon character Mickey Mouse, created in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, is one of the world's most recognizable characters, serves as the company's official mascot. In early 1923, Kansas City, animator Walt Disney created a short film entitled Alice's Wonderland, which featured child actress Virginia Davis interacting with animated characters. After the bankruptcy in 1923 of his previous firm, Laugh-O-Gram Studio, Disney moved to Hollywood to join his brother, Roy O. Disney. Film distributor Margaret J. Winkler of M. J. Winkler Productions contacted Disney with plans to distribute a whole series of Alice Comedies purchased for $1,500 per reel with Disney as a production partner. Walt and Roy Disney formed Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio that same year. More animated films followed after Alice. In January 1926, with the completion of the Disney studio on Hyperion Street, the Disney Brothers Studio's name was changed to the Walt Disney Studio.
After the demise of the Alice comedies, Disney developed an all-cartoon series starring his first original character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, distributed by Winkler Pictures through Universal Pictures. The distributor owned Oswald, so Disney only made a few hundred dollars. Disney completed 26 Oswald shorts before losing the contract in February 1928, due to a legal loophole, when Winkler's husband Charles Mintz took over their distribution company. After failing to take over the Disney Studio, Mintz hired away four of Disney's primary animators to start his own animation studio, Snappy Comedies. In 1928, to recover from the loss of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Disney came up with the idea of a mouse character named Mortimer while on a train headed to California, drawing up a few simple drawings; the mouse was renamed Mickey Mouse and starred in several Disney produced films. Ub Iwerks refined Disney's initial design of Mickey Mouse. Disney's first sound film Steamboat Willie, a cartoon starring Mickey, was released on November 18, 1928 through Pat Powers' distribution company.
It was the first Mickey Mouse sound cartoon released, but the third to be created, behind Plane Crazy and The Gallopin' Gaucho. Steamboat Willie was an immediate smash hit, its initial success was attributed not just to Mickey's appeal as a character, but to the fact that it was the first cartoon to feature synchronized sound. Disney used Pat Powers' Cinephone system, created by Powers using Lee de Forest's Phonofilm system. Steamboat Willie premiered at B. S. Moss's Colony Theater in New York City, now The Broadway Theatre. Disney's Plane Crazy and The Gallopin' Gaucho were retrofitted with synchronized sound tracks and re-released in 1929. Disney continued to produce cartoons with Mickey Mouse and other characters, began the Silly Symphony series with Columbia Pictures signing on as Symphonies distributor in August 1929. In September 1929, theater manager Harry Woodin requested permission to start a Mickey Mouse Club which Walt approved. In November, test comics strips were sent to King Features, who requested additional samples to show to the publisher, William Randolph Hearst.
On December 16, the Walt Disney Studios partnership was reorganized as a corporation with the name of Walt Disney Productions, Limited with a merchandising division, Walt Disney Enterprises, two subsidiaries, Disney Film Recording Company and Liled Realty and Investment Company for real estate holdings. Walt and his wife held Roy owned 40 % of WD Productions. On December 30, King Features signed its first newspaper, New York Mirror, to publish the Mickey Mouse comic strip with Walt's permission. In 1932, Disney signed an exclusive contract with Technicolor to produce cartoons in color, beginning with Flowers and Trees. Disney released cartoons through Powers' Celebrity Pictures, Columbia Pictures, United Artists; the popularity of the Mickey Mouse series allowed Disney to plan for his first feature-length animation.

Purple is a color intermediate between blue and red. It is similar to violet, but unlike violet, a spectral color with its own wavelength on the visible spectrum of light, purple is a secondary color made by combining red and blue; the complementary color of purple is yellow. According to surveys in Europe and North America, purple is the color most associated with rarity, magic and piety; when combined with pink, it is associated with eroticism and seduction. Purple was the color worn by Roman magistrates. In Japan, the color is traditionally associated with the Emperor and aristocracy. Purple is most favorited color preferences amongst women and girls, is symbolic of the feminist movement and women's empowerment; the word'purple' comes from the Old English word purpul which derives from Latin purpura, in turn from the Greek πορφύρα, name of the Tyrian purple dye manufactured in classical antiquity from a mucus secreted by the spiny dye-murex snail. The first recorded use of the word'purple' in the English language was in the year 975 AD.
In heraldry, the word purpure is used for purple. In the traditional color wheel used by painters and purple are both placed between red and blue. Purple occupies between crimson and violet. Violet is closer to blue, is less saturated than purple. While the two colors look similar, from the point of view of optics there are important differences. Violet is a spectral color – it occupies its own place at the end of the spectrum of light first identified by Isaac Newton in 1672, it has its own wavelength – whereas purple is a combination of two spectral colors and blue. There is no such thing as the "wavelength of purple light". See Line of purples. Monochromatic violet light cannot be produced by the red-green-blue color system, the method used to create colors on a television screen or computer display. However, the system is capable of approximating it due to the fact that the L-cone in the eye is uniquely sensitive to two different discontinuous regions in the visible spectrum – its primary region being the long wavelength light of the yellow-red region of the spectrum, a secondary smaller region overlapping with the S-cone in the shortest wavelength, violet part.
This means that when violet light strikes the eye, the S-cone should be stimulated and the L-cone stimulated weakly along with it. By lighting the red primary of the display weakly along with the blue primary, a similar pattern of sensitization can be achieved, creating an illusion, the sensation of short wavelength light using what is in fact mixed light of two longer wavelengths; the resulting color has the same hue as pure violet. One psychophysical difference between purple and violet is their appearance with an increase in luminance. Violet, as it brightens, looks more blue; the same effect does not happen with purple. This is the result of -- Brücke shift. While the scientific definitions of violet and purple are clear, the cultural definitions are more varied; the color known in antiquity as Tyrian purple ranged from crimson to a deep bluish-purple, depending upon how it was made. In France, purple is defined as "a dark red, inclined toward violet"; the color called purple by the French, contains more red and half the amount of blue of the color called purple in the United States and the U.
K. In German, this color is sometimes called Purpurrot to avoid confusion. Purple first appeared in prehistoric art during the Neolithic era; the artists of Pech Merle cave and other Neolithic sites in France used sticks of manganese and hematite powder to draw and paint animals and the outlines of their own hands on the walls of their caves. These works have been dated to between 16,000 and 25,000 BC; as early as the 15th century BC the citizens of Sidon and Tyre, two cities on the coast of Ancient Phoenicia, were producing purple dye from a sea snail called the spiny dye-murex. Clothing colored with the Tyrian dye was mentioned in both the Iliad of Homer and the Aeneid of Virgil; the deep, rich purple dye made from this snail became known as Tyrian purple. The process of making the dye was long and expensive. Thousands of the tiny snails had to be found, their shells cracked. Mountains of empty shells have been found at the ancient sites of Tyre; the snails were left to soak a tiny gland was removed and the juice extracted and put in a basin, placed in the sunlight.
There a remarkable transformation took place. In the sunlight the juice turned white yellow-green green violet a red which turned darker and darker; the process had to be stopped at the right time to obtain the desired color, which could range from a bright crimson to a dark purple, the color of dried blood. Either wool, linen or silk would be dyed; the exact hue varied between crimson and violet, but it was always rich and lasting. Tyrian purple became the color of kings, nobles and magistrates all around the Mediterranean, it was mentioned in the Old Testament. Th
Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree
Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree is a 1966 animated featurette based on the first two chapters of the book Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne; the film was produced by Walt Disney Productions. Its songs were written by the Sherman Brothers and the score was composed and conducted by Buddy Baker; this featurette was shown alongside the live-action feature The Ugly Dachshund, was included as a segment in the 1977 compilation film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Winnie-the-Pooh is introduced as a bear living in the Hundred Acre Wood. After doing his Stoutness Exercises, he is disappointed to find, he hears a bee fly by and decides to climb a nearby honey tree, but as he reaches the beehive, a branch he is sitting on breaks, causing him to fall and land in a gorse bush. Pooh's best friend Christopher Robin gives Pooh a balloon and he tries his best to trick the bees by disguising himself as a Little Black Rain Cloud by rolling in a muddy puddle and floating up to the bees' nest. Without looking, he eats them with the honey.
They fly around inside his mouth causing him to spit them out. One of the bees is the chief. By now the other bees have realised what is going on and they fly out to meet him as his disguise starts to drip revealing that he is in fact a bear. General Stinger angrily flies up and stings his bottom; the sudden hit causes him to jam his bottom in the hive. General Stinger starts laughing heartily at Pooh's expense; the now nervous Pooh admits to Christopher Robin that these are the wrong sorts of bees, is shoved out of the hole by them who proceed to chase him away. Pooh, still hungry, decides to visit Rabbit’s house, as Rabbit "uses short, easy words like'how about lunch?' and'help yourself, Pooh." Rabbit reluctantly invites Pooh in, where Pooh helps himself to jars of honey. When Pooh has eaten all of the honey in Rabbit's house, he tries to leave, but is too large to fit through Rabbit's door. Rabbit tries to free Pooh by pushing him through his door, but realizes he will need help to get Pooh out, leaves via his back door to fetch Christopher Robin for help.
Owl flies past and tries to give Pooh advice, but is interrupted by Gopher, who claims he can use dynamite to blast Pooh out of the hole. Despite the effort of Christopher Robin and Rabbit pulling together, Pooh does not budge. Pooh is worried he may be stuck for a while, while he is, Rabbit decides to decorate Pooh's bottom so he will not have to face looking at him being stuck for so long, he decorates Pooh's bottom into a moose-like "hunting trophy". While he is doing this and Roo visit Pooh and give him some honeysuckle flowers which make Pooh sneeze, ruining Rabbit's moose. Rabbit is forced to put up a "Don't feed the bear!" Sign after Pooh tries to get honey from Gopher. Rabbit feels him move a bit. Ecstatic and Christopher Robin gather the whole of the Hundred Acre Wood to get Pooh out. Everyone except Rabbit pulls from outside. Rabbit shoves Pooh with a running start, Pooh is launched free from Rabbit's door and into the air while the others fall to the ground, they watch as Pooh shoots into the hole of another honey tree.
The gang finds him stuck in the tree headfirst. Christopher Robin shouts up to him not to worry, but Pooh is eating the honey that fills the inside of the tree and tells his friends to take their time. Sterling Holloway as Winnie the Pooh, a bear who loves honey. Junius Matthews as Rabbit, a rabbit, obsessive-compulsive and loves planting his vegetables in his garden. Bruce Reitherman as Christopher Robin, a seven-year-old boy and Pooh's best friend. Hal Smith as Owl, an owl who loves to talk about his family. Howard Morris as Gopher, a hardworking gopher who lives underground and falls into his hole. Clint Howard as Roo, Kanga's energetic young joey. Barbara Luddy as Kanga, a kangaroo and Roo's mother. Ralph Wright as Eeyore, an old grey donkey who's always losing his tail and talks in a slow deep depressing voice and tone. Dallas McKennon, Jimmy MacDonald, Ginny Tyler as the Bees Sebastian Cabot as The Narrator "Winnie the Pooh" "Up, Down and Touch the Ground" "Rumbly in My Tumbly" "Little Black Rain Cloud" "Mind Over Matter"All songs were written by Robert & Richard Sherman, who have written most of the music for the Winnie-the-Pooh franchise over the years, subsequently incorporated into the 1977 musical film, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, an amalgamation of the three previous Winnie-the-Pooh featurettes including "Honey Tree".
"Mind Over Matter" was about tempting Pooh to think about getting thinner again. The original lyrics can be heard on the soundtrack album from Disneyland Records. In the end, it ended up being the "Heave Ho" song in the final film. In 1964, when the Sherman Brothers were preparing to demonstrate "Little Black Rain Cloud" for Walt Disney, Robert Sherman reminded his brother Richard that Disney was from the Midwest and that he didn't pronounce the word "hover" like Californians would. Instead, he would pronounce it more like "hoovering"; as Richard played the piano and sang, he stumbled over the lyric, unable to get past the second line of the song. After a few tries Disney said, "Why don't you just tell us about it, Dick." The insight and inspiration for the Pooh songs came from an unlikely source, as is explained in the Sherman Brothers' joint autobiography, Walt's Time: The film's plot is based on two A. A. Milne stories: "In which we are introduced to Winnie-th

Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore
Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore is a 1983 Disney Winnie the Pooh animated featurette, based on two chapters from the books Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner released theatrically on March 25, 1983, with the 1983 re-issue of The Sword in the Stone. It is the fourth and final of Disney's original theatrical featurettes adapted from the Pooh books by A. A. Milne. Produced by Rick Reinert Productions, this was the first Disney animated film since the 1938 Silly Symphonies short Merbabies to be produced by an outside studio; the film begins with the invention of a racing game called Poohsticks in which Pooh takes a walk to a wooden bridge over a river where he likes to do nothing in particular. On this day, though, he picks it up. Pooh thinks up a rhyme to go with the fir cone, but he accidentally trips on a tree root and drops it in the river. Noticing that the flow of the river takes the cone under the bridge, Pooh invents a racing game out of it; as the game uses sticks instead of cones, he calls it "Poohsticks".
That day Pooh, Piglet and Roo are playing Poohsticks see Eeyore floating in the river. After somehow rescuing him with a rock, he tells them that he fell in due to being bounced from behind. Piglet assumes; when Tigger arrives on the scene, he claims that his bounce was a cough, leading to an argument between him and Eeyore, but with some outside help from the narrator, Winnie the Pooh and his friends find out that he had indeed deliberately bounced Eeyore on page 245. Tigger says it was all a joke. Tigger disgustedly says that they have no sense of humor, bounces away, but as Eeyore seems depressed this day, Pooh follows him to his Gloomy Spot and asks what the problem is. Eeyore says that it is his birthday, nobody has taken any notice to celebrate it. Pooh decides to give him a jar of honey, but does not get far before he has a hunger attack and ends up eating the honey, he decides to ask Owl for advice. Owl suggests. Owl ends up writing a misspelled greeting on the pot and flies off to tell Christopher Robin about the birthday.
Piglet, who heard about Eeyore's birthday from Pooh, planned to give a red balloon to Eeyore, but when Owl greets him from the sky, Piglet forgets to look where he is going, until he hits a tree and causes it to accidentally burst the balloon. Piglet is sad that his gift for Eeyore is spoiled, but he presents it to him anyway, only a minute Pooh brings the empty pot. Eeyore is gladdened, as he removes it again. Pooh and his friends pitch in and plan a surprise party for their friend. During the party, Tigger bounces Rabbit out of his chair. Roo welcomes him to the festivities as Rabbit draws himself up from being bounced on by Tigger, incensed. Rabbit opines that Tigger should leave because of the way he treated Eeyore earlier, Roo wants Tigger to stay, Christopher Robin's solution is for everyone to go to the bridge and play Poohsticks. Eeyore, a first-time player, wins the most games, but Tigger wins nothing at all, causing him to conclude that "Tiggers don't like Poohsticks". Eeyore's secret for winning, as he explains to Tigger afterwards, is to "let his stick drop in a twitchy sort of way."
As Tigger bounces Eeyore again, Christopher Robin and Piglet all decide that "Tigger's all right, really". Ralph Wright as Eeyore Hal Smith as Winnie the Pooh and Owl Laurie Main as Mr. Narrator Will Ryan as Rabbit Dick Billingsley as Roo John Fiedler as Piglet Kim Christianson as Christopher Robin Julie McWhirter Dees as Kanga Paul Winchell as TiggerOnly Hal Smith, Ralph Wright, John Fiedler, Paul Winchell returned in the roles they had originated in. Kim Christianson became the fourth different actor to portray Christopher Robin in as many featurettes, after Bruce Reitherman, Jon Walmsley, Timothy Turner. Dick Billingsley assumed the role of Roo after Dori Whitaker and Clint Howard portrayed him in the previous featurettes. Hal Smith and Laurie Main first took the roles of Winnie the Pooh and The Narrator in the 1981 educational film Winnie the Pooh Discovers the Seasons, as Sterling Holloway elected not to continue the role of Pooh and Sebastian Cabot, the original narrator, died shortly after the release of the feature film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
The deaths of Junius Matthews in 1978 and Barbara Luddy in 1979 necessitated changes in Rabbit's and Kanga's portrayers. Additionally, Laurie Main, Hal Smith, Will Ryan, Kim Christianson appear in the live-action series Welcome to Pooh Corner as the Narrator, Winnie the Pooh, Owl and Roo respectively. Ralph Wright, one of two voice actors who appeared in all four theatrical releases, became the third principal Winnie the Pooh featurette voice to pass away shortly after the release of the film, he has since been followed in the deaths by Sterling Holloway, Hal Smith, Paul Winchell and John Fiedler, who had died on consecutive days in June 2005. On DVD and Blu-ray releases of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, the short carries different voice credits than those on previous video releases.

Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too
Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too is a 1974 animated featurette from Disney released as a double feature with The Island at the Top of the World. It lost to Closed Mondays, it was added as a segment to the 1977 film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. A soundtrack album was released and featured such songs as "The Honey Tree" and "Birthday, Birthday." The film, whose name is a play on the slogan "Tippecanoe and Tyler too" made famous during the 1840 United States presidential election, is based on the third and seventh chapters from The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne. During the fall, Tigger has been bouncing on anyone he comes across for fun Rabbit when he is gardening, which makes Rabbit angry, so he decides to arrange a meeting with Pooh and Piglet and formulate a plan to prevent Tigger from bouncing: abandon Tigger in the woods, find him the next day so Tigger will stop bouncing on his friends unexpectedly; the plan seems to work, but when Rabbit and Piglet cannot find their way home, Pooh makes a suggestion about following a sandpit in order to find their way out of the forest.
In an attempt to prove Pooh wrong, Rabbit wanders away. Pooh and Piglet fall asleep, but are awakened by Pooh's empty stomach, he explains to Piglet that his twelve honeypots in his cupboard have been calling to his tummy from home and that he couldn't hear them over Rabbit's voice. Pooh and Piglet find their way out of the forest, but are bounced by Tigger. Piglet, realizing that the plan failed, mentions Rabbit's plan, Tigger goes into the forest to find him. Rabbit walks through the darkest part of the forest by himself, is scared by numerous noises such as a caterpillar eating a leaf and frogs croaking. Rabbit tries to run away in a panic. Rabbit is humiliated. Tigger explains to him that "Tiggers never get lost", takes Rabbit home. In the next chapter, wintertime comes and Roo wants to go play. Kanga cannot be with him so she calls on Tigger to look after Roo as long as he comes back in time for Roo's nap. Tigger gladly accepts. Along the way through the woods and Roo see Rabbit skating on the ice.
Tigger tries to teach Roo how to ice skate by doing it himself, but he loses his balance and collides with Rabbit while trying to regain it. In moments Tigger slides into a Rabbit crashes into his house. Tigger decides that he does not like ice skating. On, while bouncing around the woods with Roo on his back, Tigger accidentally jumps to the top of a tall tree and is afraid to climb back down, he gets more scared when Roo uses his tail as a swing, making Tigger think he's "rocking the forest". Meanwhile and Piglet are investigating strange animal tracks that are Tigger and Roo's, they hear Tigger howling, for help and hide. At first, Pooh mistakes Tigger's howl for the sound of a "Jagular". Shortly afterward, Christopher Robin and Kanga arrive and the gang uses Christopher's coat as a net for Tigger and Roo to land in once they jump from the tree. Roo jumps down, but Tigger, still too frightened to move, makes up several excuses to not come down. Rabbit decides that the group will just have to leave Tigger in the tree forever, on which Tigger promises never to bounce again if he is released from his predicament.
At that moment, the narrator chimes in for help. Tigger begs him to "narrate" him down from the tree, he tilts the book sideways, allowing Tigger to step onto the text of the page. Tigger starts to feel better that he made it this far but before he can do otherwise, the narrator tilts the book back the other way, causing Tigger to fall into the snow. Happy, Tigger attempts to bounce. Devastated, Tigger realizes he cannot bounce anymore and walks away and Rabbit feels better that there will be peace, but everyone else does not and felt sad to see Tigger depressed and remind Rabbit of the joy Tigger brought when he was bouncing. Rabbit, realising how selfish he was, shows sympathy for Tigger and takes back the promise they had agreed on. Tigger invites everyone to bounce with him and teaches Rabbit how to do it. For the first time, Rabbit is happy to be bouncing, as is everyone else as Tigger sings his signature song once more before the short closes.

Watercress or yellowcress is an aquatic plant species with the botanical name Nasturtium officinale. This should not be confused with the profoundly different and unrelated group of plants with the common name of nasturtium, within the genus Tropaeolum. Watercress is a growing, aquatic or semi-aquatic, perennial plant native to Europe and Asia, one of the oldest known leaf vegetables consumed by humans, it is a member of the family Brassicaceae, botanically related to garden cress, mustard and wasabi—all noteworthy for their piquant flavor. The hollow stems of watercress will float. Small and green flowers are produced in clusters and are visited by insects hoverflies such as Eristalis flies. Watercress is listed in some sources as belonging to the genus Rorippa, although molecular evidence shows the aquatic species with hollow stems are more related to Cardamine than Rorippa. Despite the Latin name, watercress is not closely related to the flowers popularly known as nasturtiums. Cultivation of watercress is practical on both a garden-scale.
Being semi-aquatic, watercress is well-suited to hydroponic cultivation, thriving best in water, alkaline. It is produced around the headwaters of chalk streams. In many local markets, the demand for hydroponically grown watercress exceeds supply because cress leaves are unsuitable for distribution in dried form, can only be stored fresh for a short period. Watercress can be sold in supermarkets in sealed plastic bags, containing a little moisture and pressurised to prevent crushing of contents; this has allowed national availability with a once-purchased storage life of one to two days in chilled or refrigerated storage. Sold as sprouts, the edible shoots are harvested days after germination. If unharvested, watercress can grow to a height of 50 to 120 centimetres. Like many plants in this family, the foliage of watercress becomes bitter when the plants begin producing flowers. Watercress crops grown in the presence of manure can be an environment for parasites such as the liver fluke, Fasciola hepatica.
By inhibiting cytochrome P450, compounds in watercress may alter drug metabolism in individuals on certain medications such as chlorzoxazone. In some regions, watercress is regarded in other regions as an aquatic vegetable or herb. Watercress has been grown in many locations around the world. In the United Kingdom, watercress was first commercially cultivated in 1808 by the horticulturist William Bradbery, along the River Ebbsfleet in Kent. Watercress is now grown in a number of counties of the United Kingdom, most notably Hertfordshire, Hampshire and Dorset; the town of Alresford, near Winchester, holds a Watercress Festival that brings in more than 15,000 visitors every year, a preserved steam railway line has been named after the local crop. In recent years, watercress has become more available in the UK, at least in the southeast. Alresford in the U. K. is considered to be that nation's watercress capital. In the United States in the 1940s, Alabama, was locally known as the "watercress capital of the world".
Watercress is 95% water and has low contents of carbohydrates, protein and dietary fiber. A 100-gram serving of watercress provides 11 calories, is rich in vitamin K, contains significant amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese.
