Iwerks, Ub (American cartoonist and animator, 1901-1971)

Note: Iwerks worked with Walt Disney to help create Mickey Mouse, giving him movement and personality in the first cartoons. He drew nearly every frame of the early animated features. In 1930, he opened Iwerks Studios and created new comic charaters, including Flip the Frog and Willie Whopper. Iwerks returned to Disney in 1940, where he invented the Multihead Optical Printer, a technique that allowed animated characters to interact with real-life actors as featured in Disney's film 1946 film "Song of the South."
