They got a studio and called it Disney Brothers Studios and also got their first deal with a distributor in New York and made shorts at $1,500 per short. They then worked on 7 minute shorts. Sadly Disney became bankrupt in 1923. After this he and his brother and their wives made 3 new cartoons featuring a new character called Mickey Mouse.
