A CASTLE IN EVERY HEART: THE ARTO MONACO STORY chronicles the engaging life and work of Arto Monaco (1913-2003), the pioneering designer and gifted storyteller responsible for Santa’s Workshop, The Land of Makebelieve and Old MacDonald’s Farm petting zoo. Beginning in the late 1940s, Monaco introduced Americans to a new form of outdoor entertainment — the theme park — and in the ensuing decades, visitors responded by flocking to his parks by the thousands. The program charts Monaco's education at the prestigious Pratt Institute in New York City, his stints as a storyboard artist for Hollywood film studios and as an army recruit during World War II and finally, to his life's work building theme parks.
