Disney Legend


Tony Anselmo was inspired by the first movie he saw, Mary Poppins. As a boy, he began drawing and making animated films using his Super 8 camera. His portfolio of drawings earned Tony a full Scholarship from the Disney Family to California Institute of the Arts, Walt Disney's fabled art school that cultivated many successful Disney artists. The Character Animation at CalArts was headed by Jack Hannah, the director of the Donald Duck shorts unit under Walt Disney. After his second year at CalArts Tony was selected to transfer to The Disney Studios Animation department under Eric Larson, one of Walt's "9 Old Men". As an animator, Tony worked on over 20 traditionally animated Disney features from The Little Mermaid, to Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King. It was Tony's apprenticeship with Clarence Nash, the original voice of Donald Duck, which led to Tony’s second career at Disney behind the microphone as Donald’s voice. On Clarence's passing in 1985, Tony became the only other person to officially voice Donald Duck. Tony was the first person to both animate and voice Donald Duck for the 50th annual Academy Awards, Prince and the Pauper, and The Three Musketeers. Tony continues to delight audiences with Donald’s antics on Mickey Mouse Funhouse, Kingdom Hearts, Disney park shows, attractions, and consumer products. Tony is known for his comprehensive collection of original movie posters from each of Walt Disney's films. This expertise resulted in the 2002 art book, The Disney Poster Book featuring the Collection of Tony Anselmo. In 2009 Tony Anselmo was named a Disney Legend by Roy E. Disney.

After decades of working in the field of circus arts, Amy is currently juggling work including producing a film about young Jim Morrison before he joined The Doors (with VMI Worldwide and Orian Williams). Just as she did 35 years ago dancing in the kitchen with a mop, Amy hasn't shrunk from any opportunity to put a smile on everyone's face!

During the 1950s and early 1960s, Gibson appeared in 34 films and approximately 200 television episodes. Her film debut came in I'll See You in My Dreams (1951).

Her last TV roles came as a teenage girlfriend in episodes of My Three Sons in the late 1960s. In 1957, she and child actress Evelyn Rudie played the daughters of John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in The Wings of Eagles. Although they had some significant scenes, she and Rudie were not credited. The same year she was in the horror B movie The Monster That Challenged the World.

In 1958, Gibson portrayed Cary Grant's daughter - with Paul Petersen and Charles Herbert playing her brothers - in the romantic comedy Houseboat, which also starred Sophia Loren. Gibson said, "I'd like to be remembered for Houseboat. Houseboat was fun, wonderful and I loved it". After the film was completed, Loren gave Gibson a pendant with a houseboat on one side and "To Mimi from Sophia" on the other. Grant gave each of the children a $50 savings bond.

In 1961, Gibson appeared in The Children's Hour, based on the play by Lillian Hellman. Gibson played a schoolgirl at a small private school run by two friends portrayed by Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine who were falsely accused of being in a lesbian relationship which was somewhat risque for its time. Gibson said Hepburn was very nice to the girls, but that "Shirley MacLaine despised kids" and would not speak to them. That same year, in One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Gibson voiced the puppy named Lucky, alongside Mickey Maga, Barbara Baird, Sandra Abbot, and several other children. Gibson became known for this film for her line, "I'm tired and I'm hungry and my tail's froze...and my nose is froze and my ears are froze. And my toes are froze."

On television, Gibson appeared in five Playhouse 90 dramas and many episodes of The Red Skelton Show, as well as some episodes of Whirlybirds, and Leave it to Beaver.
