“The Disney strike occurred during the making of the animated feature Dumbo, and a number of strikers are caricatured in the feature as clowns who go to “hit the big boss for a raise”. During the strike, animators from other studios volunteered their cars to form a motorcade around the Disney studio.
“The strike had an impact on Walt Disney. Before the strike he felt as if they were “one big family”, but after the strike he was not sure whether he could trust anyone. Walt eventually recovered for the most part but never quite forgave the people who had been part of the strike.”
