Thanks for a wonderful event, y’all!

As a sidebar, I am intensely curious for any additional details anybody can provide about two of the Trivia questions.

2. What famous actress wrote a note to Walt Disney asking the question, “Mr. Disney, why do you wait so long between Mickey Mouse appearances?”

Mary Pickford

Google has no idea about this quote, so I’m curious where I can find out more about Walt and Mary’s relationship (besides United Artists and the original idea for a full-length Alice feature).

4. Roy O. Disney presented an animation cel from which 1952 cartoon to Emperor Hirohito of Japan?

Lambert, the Sheepish Lion

All that Google (and Wikipedia!) are telling me is that Hirohito owns a complete print of that film and that Hirohito presented Roy with a lantern that is now tucked away in EPCOT’s Japan Pavillion.
