We don’t know how old Rue’s name badge from Disney is, but there is probably an expert out there or a site that can provide the answer. What we do know is that Rue had a relationship with The Walt Disney Company her entire life: first, as a fan of their movies and animated features; then, as a big fan of Disneyland in California (along with her little son Mark); and still later, as a visitor and celebrity guest of Walt Disney World in Florida. When Rue’s television and movie career took off, she started a business relationship with The Walt Disney Company that survived her death and continues to this day; the first television show Disney produced under their “Touchstone Television” label was “The Golden Girls,” and they distribute the show to this day. Thankfully, Rue was still alive when she and the other “Golden Girls” were honored with Disney Legends Awards in 2009. We’re going to let you in on a secret: when we visited Rue’s plaque in Legends Plaza at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California, we sprinkled some of her ashes in front of the pillar where her plaque is mounted along with those of Estelle Getty, Betty White, and Bea Arthur. It is such a beautiful spot, a quiet and peaceful park in the middle of a busy entertainment business, and we knew it was the type of place where Rue would feel right at home. Rue’s original Disney name badge comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
