August 20, 1928 – The Last Disney Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Short Film Hot Dog Premiered in Theaters

Oswald Hot Dog

On August 20, 1928, the final Disney created Oswald the Lucky Rabbit short film, Hot Dog, was released to theaters. The short film marked the end of the working relationship between Charles Mintz and Walt Disney, with Disney losing the character to Mintz after refusing to resign with a 20% cut in profits; this would ultimately lead to the creation of Mickey Mouse. The film has since become a lost cartoon, with only the title card and a storyboard page surviving.
