News from Disneyland


From July 1955 to March 1957, Disneyland published its own newspaper - the Disneyland News - which was sold by young "news butchers" along Main Street. One of those young newsboys, holding down his very first job, was comedian Steve Martin. The News was created and edited by recent college graduate Martin A Sklar, who went on to writhe personal material for Walt, Disneyland attraction dialog, and the first book about Disneyland. Marty is currently Vice-Chairman and Principal Creative Executive of Walt Disney Imagineering.
