杂谈

 

 

  The name Walt Disney brings to mind favorite cartoon characters, movies, and songs. Who was the man behind the name? And who was the kid inside the man who helped create happiness for so many people?
Walt <wbr>Disney
  CHICAGO, ILLINOES, was already a big city when Walt Elias Disney was born there on December 5, 1901. The city was too big and bustling, in fact, to suit Walt's parents. They decided to move Walt, his sister, and three brothers to a farm near the small town of Marceline, Missouri.

  Walt was just 4 years old at the time of the move, but he left a real strong mark on the farm. The family had no money for pencils and paper. Walt wanted to draw, so he found some tar-a dark, sticky substance often used to patch roofs. Then he picked up a stick, dipped it in the tar, and drew a house...on the side of his own house! This drawing (maybe Walt's first) lasted a long time.

  It was hard to make a living on the farm so the family moved again, this time to Kansas City, Missouri. There 8-year-old Walt tried to make some money to help this struggling family. For six years he got up at 3:30 each morning to deliver newspapers.

  Walt wanted to draw cartoons like those he saw in the newspapers, but he had little free time. He also received very little encouragement. His father thought drawing was a waste of time. And his fourthgrade teacher did not like it when Walt put faces and arms on the flowers he drew in a picture at school.

  Walking home from school, Walt used to pass Fairmont Park, an amusement center. He never went inside because he didn't have the money to pay for admission. Instead, he stood outside, listening to the music and watching other people have fun. He had no way of knowing that, 45 years later, he would be famous as a wealthy and creative genius, or that he would open Disneyland in California, an amusement park bigger and better than any other at the time. Walt died in 1966, five years before the opening of a second amusement center -- Walt Disney World in Florida.

沃尔特·迪斯尼

  一提到沃尔特·迪斯尼这个名字,就使人们想起那些特别令人喜爱的卡通人物、电影和歌曲。这个名字后面的那个人是谁呢?给这么多人带来欢乐的那个人,在他心灵深处的那个小家伙又是谁呢?

  1901年12月5日,当沃尔特·艾利亚斯·迪斯尼出生时,依利诺斯州的芝加哥已经是一座大城市了。这座大城市太大,太嘈杂,实际上不适合沃尔特父母生活。于是,他们决定把沃尔特,他姐姐和三个兄弟送到密苏里州玛色林小镇附近的一座农场里。

  那时,沃尔特刚4岁,但他对农场留下了实际而深刻的印象。家里没有钱买纸和笔,于是他找来一些柏油,这是一种又黑又粘的东西,通常是用来修补屋顶的。后来他捡了一根小棍儿,蘸上柏油在他家的侧面墙上画小房子等。这些画(也许是沃尔特的第一幅作品)保留了很长一段时间。

  在农场里生活很艰难,于是全家又再一次搬家,这一次搬到了密苏里州的堪萨斯市。在这里,8岁的沃尔特尽力去多挣钱以帮助他们这个勉强维持的家庭。6年来,他每天早晨3:30就得起床去分发报纸。

  沃尔特想画一些像他在报纸上看到的那样的卡通画,但他没有空闲时间。他也很少得到鼓励。他父亲认为画画是浪费时间。而且学校里那位四年级的老师也不喜欢他在画好的花上再添上脸和胳膊。

  从学校走回家,沃尔特要经过弗尔蒙特公园,这是一处娱乐中心。他从来没有进去过,因为他没钱买门票。他只能站在外边,听听音乐,看着其他人在里面尽情欢乐。他怎么也没想到,在45年后他能成为富翁,成为一位有创造力的天才,也没想到他能在加利福尼亚州的迪斯尼兰开设一家比当时任何一家更大、更好的娱乐中心。沃尔特在1966年去世。在此前5年,他在佛罗里达州开办了第二家娱乐中心——沃尔特迪斯尼世界。
