The Secret Walt Disney Commercials

Tom Oreb model sheet

ANIMATION WORLD MAGAZINE has just published an informative piece by historian Jim Korkis about Disney’s short-lived (and rarely discussed) TV commercial unit during the 1950s. I’d love to see a collection of these spots on a future Disney Treasures dvd set. The spots were generally well produced and they deserve to be more widely available. Not to mention that Tom Oreb created an extraordinary amount of great designs for these commercials, like the Pegleg-less Pete Cat model above.
