Frank & Ollie are two of the legendary animators Walt Disney dubbed his “nine old men.”

In 1987, Scott was working as a production assistant for Hanna Barbera Productions, on the “Foofur” and “Popeye and Son” series. When those series ended in 1988, he received a call from a former Hanna Barbera colleague, and was asked if he wanted to come to work as a production assistant at Disney, and he soon found himself working on the second season of the hit series “DuckTales.” Always involved in much more than simply what his job entailed, Scott even wrote a couple nationally televised commercials for that series. He later joined the production team of the “TaleSpin” television series.

While working in animation, Scott began taking pictures at the many Disney employee events, and soon became recognized as a photographer on the side. He soon had the opportunity to officially photograph many of the special events Disney held or participated in such as the American Teacher Awards, the Tournament of Roses Parade, the Disney Legends Ceremonies and much more.

His photographs have been published in numerous newspapers, magazines, books and other publications.

After leaving Disney, Scott remained involved in many capacities over the years, including writing more than 700 articles for the Disney Archives official website.

Scott’s library of personal interviews, that he has deemed his “Mouse Clubhouse,” came about after he had opportunities to meet and have conversations with many Disney luminaries, and realized the stories were too good for his ears only. He started recording them to be preserved for all Disney fans to enjoy.
