  • Bob Gurr on Working with Walt Disney - LaughingPlace.com - 12/26/06

    A very interesting article, that came out of Bob Gurr reading Neal Gabler's new biography on Walt Disney...

    I only suffered one upset with Walt, and it was not about ego. After a fatal accident at a nearby amusement park on a RotoJet Ride similar to the one at Disneyland, Construction VP Admiral Joe Fowler had Roger instruct me to design a safety cage for our ride, called the AstroJet. The cage was pretty ugly and we built an operating prototype of my design. The thing was sort of hidden by a staircase leading to Rogers upstairs office in the Studio Machine Shop.

    A day or so later I was in the administration parking lot down at Disneyland when I saw Walt headed straight for me with the eyebrows arched in rage mode. "I just saw that GD thing in your shop...that GD thing is not going in MY GD PARK. Understand? This is my GD Park and I'm the only one who says what goes in it." He emphasized this with a painful jab to my chest with that famous boney finger. He didn't want to hear that it was Joe and Roger who put me up to it.
