Recommended. By David A. Bossert. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was created in 1927 by Walt Disney and his team, and ran through 26 cartoon shorts. Not without fits and starts, the series and its impish title character were an instant hit with audiences. At the end of that initial run, Walt lost the contract to Oswald, which prompted his creation of...Mickey Mouse. Over the years, Oswald became a footnote in the Disney story . . . until 2006, when The Walt Disney Company recovered rights to Walt s twenty-six shorts.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was created in 1927 by Walt Disney and his team, and ran through 26 cartoon shorts. Not without fits and starts, the series and its impish title character were an instant hit with audiences. At the end of that initial run, Walt lost the contract to Oswald, which prompted his creation of...Mickey Mouse. Over the years, Oswald became a footnote in the Disney story . . . until 2006, when The Walt Disney Company recovered rights to Walt s twenty-six shorts.

Behind-the-scenes, a complex and labor-intensive search developed for the physical film footage of some Oswald cartoons deemed "lost to time." For anyone interested in Disney origins, fascinated by early cinema, or entertained by a feisty little rabbit, this engaging and accessible volume delivers an in-depth look at Walt's first major animated success and the journey to reclaim the lost Disney films.

Here are clips from the cartoons, original model sheets and artwork, wonderful full color posters, photos of the creative teams, and much more, telling the complete story of this early era of Disney history.
