Random Thursday

One last visit to Disney Facts Revealed: Answers to Fans' Curious Questions by Dave Smith for awhile! I'll come back to it again but because I have two other books of random factoids I want to devote time to each!

Marc Darvis is the one who developed and refined Tinker Bell. Margaret Kelly was an actress who modeled for for him for the character inspiration. Though Marc wasn't the first to draw her, other artists such as Bianca Majolie started doing concept art in the 1940s.

According to Albert Lozano, a designer, "If you were to blend Errol Flynn, Clark Gable, Howard Hughes, and Walt Disney into one heroic 1930s man," you would get Charles Muntz. Though there is supposedly no connection with his name being similar to Charles Mintz, who was Walt's Universal distributor. 


  1. That is a lot of creativity to get Charles Muntz!

  2. I had no idea who Charles Muntz was until googling it just now. I am hopeless.


Comments are an award all on their own! So my blog is an award free one! Thanks for any consideration though!
