Mickey Mouse proved to be a very successful cartoon. People went crazy for the merchandise and their was even a Mickey Mouse Club that was started in 1930. There were a million club members by 1932. They met in theaters but in 1935 the clubs started to be phased out. Meeting of the Mickey Mouse Club in the 1930s Even with all that success, Walt Disney Studios was still struggling. The distributors for the cartoons were taking too much money. The owner of United Artists heard about Walt's problems and made him an offer. United Artists worked with big names like Charlie Chaplin and they agreed to pay Walt the money that he needed. Things were looking good financially until Walt heard about a new innovation in the film industry. That new innovation was color. Roy did not like the idea because it was going to be expensive but Walt insisted on it.
