            . Well I guess he is a legend in a very very bad way.

              He saved Disney IIRC, saying that it was time for the crazies to take over.

              And he also gave us The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Toy Story et al.

                In the beginning, Eisner was very good for the company, and helped a lot with a lot of the expansion and revival. I say, as much as people dislike him nowadays and towards the end of his tenure, he still deserves the award...

                  I tend to view the Disney Legend awards as sort of a 'lifetime achievement' award. It honors the inductee for specific things (beloved characters designed, story ideas, etc) but also for the larger body of work during their Disney career. I only know of Floyd Norman on the list and he fits the award criteria as far as I can tell. However, I don't think Eisner's total contribution (10 years of greatness and 10 years of degradation) to the company merits the award.

                    I was thinking about this too, but I do think it's the overall service done to the company. Because even some of the actors and actresses who have the award haven't been what I would consider a lifetime achievement.

                    But, it is a good point worth considering.

                      While he overstayed his tenure by a good five years, Michael Eisner absolutely deserves to be a Disney Legend.

                      I shudder to think what would have happened to the company without him.

                      I'm sorry, but you can't judge the man on some bad choices he made in his latter years alone, without realizing there likely wouldn't be a WDC (at least in its present form and all the amazing creative endeavors from parks to Broadway shows to resorts to animation etc ...) if he hadn't of been named CEO in 1984.

                          While I won't deny the contribution Katzenberg has given to the animation division, and while I don't want this to boil down into a fight about Eisner, Katzenberg, etc. I don't think he was the right man for Wells's job. I do think however, one of Eisner's biggest mistakes was not picking a replacement suitable for Wells, and dragging his heels the whole time.

                          Many cite the death of Wells as the beginning of the decline.

                            That we can agree on.
