So in planning a new picture, we don’t think of grownups and we don't think of children, but just of that fine, clean, unspoiled spot down deep in every one of us, that maybe the world has made us forget, and that maybe our pictures can help us recall.” - Walt Disney* Coming next week: The Super Six, Part 2 -- Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto* Sponsorship* On the Road with Mickey is sponsored by
