MICKEY MOUSE BIRTHDAY

Today, Mickey Mouse was introduced in the Short – Steamboat Willie – November 18th, 1928 – although you saw Mickey first in “Plane Crazy” a test screening.

Mickey is the mascot of the Walt Disney Company, and you might know him by his Red shorts, yellow shoes and white gloves. He is as you might have guessed on of most recognized cartoon characters of all time.

He has been in over 100 films, including one of my favorites Fantasia (1940) I loved him trying to be the sorcerer.

“I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.”

—Walt Disney, Disneyland; October 27, 1954
