Burbank in Los Angeles County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Shorts Building
The Walt Disney Studios
The Shorts Building was constructed from the two original Animation Buildings located at the Disney Studios on Hyperion Avenue in Hollywood. The two sections were moved to the Burbank site in 1939-1940 as part of the Studio construction project.
At the Hyperion location, the building housed the creative and animation staffs for the many Disney short subject cartoons as well as the animated feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It also was the home of Walt and Roy's original offices. When moved to Burbank, the Shorts Building housed the Comic Strip, Publicity and Foreign departments.
Because of its use at both Walt Disney Studio locations, the Shorts Building is unique to the Company's history.
The building underwent an extensive renovation in 1992-1993 and now is home to various Studio Operations departments.
Erected 1990 by The Walt Disney Studios.
