Within a year, Walt made 26 of these Oswald cartoons, but when he tried to get some additional money from his distributor for a second year of the cartoons, he found out that the distributor had gone behind his back and signed up almost all of his animators, hoping to make the Oswald cartoons in his own studio for less money without Walt Disney.
On rereading his contract, Walt realized that he did not own the rights to Oswald-the distributor did.
He found an ideal piece of property on Hyperion Avenue in Hollywood, built a studio, and in 1926 moved his staff to the new facility.
Walt Disney made his Alice Comedies for four years, but in 1927, he decided to move instead to an all-cartoon series.
To star in this new series, he created a character named Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
