    I came across these series of letters from 1964 starting with a little girl who liked Woody Woodpecker wrote to Walt Disney. We all know that Walt Disney didn't create Woody but he knew who did.

    I'll let you read the results but it really shows that these guys had big hearts.

    Now I understand the term "Uncle Walt".

    I wonder how many CEO's would take the time to respond to a little girl's letter today?

    They probably get so many letters today, they couldn't.

    I would love to hear the story from the point of view of the recipient.

    I got quite the chuckle on the Bugs Bunny part. Nice find!
