HE Soundtrack To several generations of moviegoers, one name is synonymous with family entertainment: Walt Disney. From the first appearance of the spirited Mickey Mouse in the ’20s, through the introduction of Minnie, Goofy and Donald Duck, to full-length features, both animated and live, audiences of all ages have responded to the magic of Walt Disney. Young adults of today who grew up with television are equally familiar with the wonderful world of Disney —as those inimitable talents moved into the making of movies with live actors. Here at HBO we are happy to participate in the latest move of Disney into pay television. The Apple Dumpling Gang, our first Walt Disney presentation, is just the first one of a series of great Disney movies we’ll be bringing to you in the months ahead.
