But after Disney CEO Michael Eisner heard the score, he deemed the bouncy tiger’s tale worthy of a full release, and it arrived in theaters nationwide in 2000. Lo and behold, it became the highest grossing of all the Winnie the Pooh films! • My Friend Flicka—the beloved TV series about a boy and his horse set in Montana—premiered on CBS in 1956. The star of the show, a 900-pound, copper-red, pure Arabian mare, earned $100 a week, equal to almost $900 today! • Milton S. Hershey incorporated his Lancaster Caramel Company in 1894, bringing his Hershey’s Chocolate Company under its wing.
