      On Ovation TV (looks like this is carried by DirectTV and my local
      Comcast (check your cable or satellite provider) - Thursday July 5 at
      9pm with a repeat at 11pm

      The Hand Behind the Mouse: The Ub Iwerks Story (1999)
      Though Walt Disney is often solely credited as a great pioneer
      of animation, he would not have his iconic Mickey Mouse character if
      it were not for the
      late Ub Iwerks. This documentary about the talented animator who made
      the early Disney shorts starring Mickey Mouse, assembles rare footage
      and interviews with
      animators who worked with Iwerks, all with funding from the very
      studio he helped start, bitterly left and rejoined years later.

      John Ratzenberger's Made in America - Budweiser
      Join us as we catch a pop fly at Nocona Sporting Goods in
      Nocona, Texas, down a can of red and white at the Anheuser Busch
      brewery in St. Louis,
      Missouri, and then head off to Tomorrowland to see why the world of
      Disney is a small world after all. (TVKirby note - The segment of the
      show is the last
      5 minutes or so. It is really just a short history of Animatronics.
      Lots of footage we've seen before <Wathel Rogers in the Carousel of
      Progress programming
      harness, etc.>. Segments are shown from all the parks and going back
      50 years. Expedition Everest's Yeti is shown, but commentary says it
      opened in 2005
      instead of the correct year of 2006. Lucky the Dinosaur is also shown.
      Worth recording for the completist. Interesting, but not essential
      viewing.)
