    1955:
    Actor, writer & funnyman Rowan Atkinson, the voice of Zazu the hornbill in Disney's animated feature The Lion King (and the star of the Mr. Bean British TV series) is born in Consett, County Durham, England.

    2009:
    The newspaper article "They're Just Two Wild And Crazy Guys," by Susan Dunne appears in The Hartford Courant. It tells the story of the Barstow family from Connecticut who back in 1956 won a family trip to Disneyland. A home movie that Robbins Barstow made of that trip has been admitted into the National Film Registry, and a fleeting image in that movie turns out to be none other than actor/comedian Steve Martin, who worked at Disneyland for several years! Martin saw the film, recognized himself hawking guidebooks at his old post, and began a correspondence with Barstow.


    Side Note: The Hartford Courant , my home state's biggest newspaper is also the countries oldest continually published newspaper. It started in 1764.
