July 20, 1981 – Time Magazine Features Article “The Great Era of Walt Disney”

“In these penciled instructions to guide animators as they drew Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, one can read the history of a popular art form as it attained its first – and perhaps only – golden age.”

On July 20, 1981, the issue of Time Magazine featured and article titled “The Great Era of Walt Disney.” Located in the cinema section, the article mused on the “golden age” of animation, particularly with the success of Disney animation, ranging from Mickey Mouse to full-length feature films. This was also notable as The Walt Disney Company was going through slump at the time, and it would be several years until there was a resurgence in Disney animated features, also known as the Disney Renaissance.
