In 1920, Tenggren emigrated to the United States and quickly established himself as one of the leading cartoonists there, he was hired by Walt Disney and was the main cartoonist for the very first cartoons: Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi and Fantasia. Tenggren never returned to Sweden and died in the USA in 1970.
