Bob Gurr, named a Disney Legend in 2004, never let a thing like not knowing how to do something get in the way of doing things. As he describes is, working for Walt Disney sounds like an amusement park ride of challenges and optimism. And listening to him speak is to be inspired to get off your keister and dig into something you've never tried.
Mr. Gurr began working on Disneyland the year before it opened. He imagineered the original Monorail, Autopia all the iconic ride vehicles for Disneyland and some of the other Disney parks. His memorable theme park and movie creations include Disney's animatronic Abraham Lincoln, Universal's King Kong, concepts for the Jurassic Park dinosaurs and robots for the 1998 production of Godzilla.
Gurr spoke for an hour at the Museum on March 13th, and took questions from the audience. Listen here for just a sample.
