July 29, 1922 – The Laugh-O-gram Short Film Little Red Riding Hood Premieres in Theaters

On July 29, 1922, the Laugh-o-Gram short film Little Red Riding Hood premiered in theaters. Though Walt Disney had had success with the Newman Laugh-O-grams in the early 1920s, this new short film was his first foray into the animation business among the likes of the New York studios. Though this short film would start a string of adapted fairy tale cartoons, this venture would fail until Disney created the Alice Comedies. The film was considered a lost film for decades, but a print was found in the 1990s in a London film library; the short was eventually restored by the Walt Disney Company when they acquired it in 1998.
