Disney Sports Logos

Recommended Posts

Okay we all know about Donald Duck and the Oregon connection, many of you that don't know is the Arizona State Sun Devils logo were created by Disney also. The face is actually supposed to resemble Walt Disney himself. Also we know about the Mighty Ducks as well. My question is, does anyone know of any other Disney Logos or Disney inspired logos?

I'm still shocked Disney didn't rename the Angels the "Lion Kings" when they owned them.

Why they had already remade Angels in the Outfield using the Angels just before they bought them. So they already had a disney movie connection.

And for another one how about the Orlando Magic. At least the name is.

Actually, Disney artists did a lot of college and University logos and mascot cartoons back in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Much of the art produced by Angelus Pacific in those days was done by Disney-emplyed artists.

This whole thing reminds me of a funny true story.

You may remember the old Bullwinkle Show. Apparently, the writers of that show did not like Disney at all. So they took a dig at Disney in one of their Fractured Fairy Tales.

They told the story of Sleeping Beauty. Except when the handsome prince (who looked quite a bit like Walt Disney himself) came to awaken Sleeping Beauty with a kiss, he decided instead of waking her up to turn her into a theme park -- Sleeping Beauty Land, I believe it was.

Anyway, it was hilarious. And, no, I don't know how Disney reacted.

Well Walt was not kind to many of artists during his time, either. At one time Walt turned many of his own staff into to the government during the Red Scare and McCarthy hearings. There is film of him testifying too, but much of that is not seen.
