An important part of Walt Disney’s history is the time he spent working at the Laugh-O-Gram studio in Kansas City. It’s where Walt built experience in animation and devised the early origins of Mickey Mouse. Walt started the business in June 1921 and ended it in 1923. Even though Walt moved on to California, the building has been a monument to his legacy. In some unfortunate news, the historic building got damaged over the weekend after a car accident.
The car ran into a corner on the north side of the building which holds the Walt Disney Laugh-O-Gram studio office. It broke an opening and knocked out bricks. The building was already undergoing renovation.
The historic building is currently undergoing a $5.5 million renovation to become a museum and education center. Despite being a setback, the officials in Kansas City are determined to restore the building and complete the project.
