Character debuts


  • Michael Eisner is hired as the CEO of Walt Disney Productions. He had previously worked as the head of ABC and then of Paramount Pictures. He would eventually bring ABC under Disney's ownership. He is most often credited with the company's turnaround in the late 1980s and early 1990s and, ironically, its subsequent downfall in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He would leave the company in 2005.
  • This was the first year in Disney history where no feature films were released from the Disney studio, which could be because of the change in ownership.
  • December 5 - Walt Disney Television Animation is established as a subsidiary of Walt Disney Productions.
