Writer and producer Bill Walsh is best known for his work with Walt Disney Studios in the 1950s and '60s. After attending the University of Cincinnati, he moved to Hollywood and found himself working as an assistant for a publicity agency. Soon after, he joined Walt Disney Studios, where he wrote jokes for the "Mickey Mouse" comic strips. Walt Disney himself was impressed with Walsh's work and his personality, and decided to have him head the studio's television division. In 1955, Walsh single-handedly developed "The Mickey Mouse Club" series, which became a huge success for the company. Not to mention, Walsh helped create the iconic Mousketeer ears each performer wore on the show. After a few successful seasons, he left to produce live action films, the most notable being the timeless musical "Mary Poppins" in 1964. Walsh also wrote and produced other classic Disney films, including "The Shaggy Dog," "Son of Flubber," and "That Darn Cat!"
