Mickey Mouse is celebrating his 88th Birthday today!
He made his official film debut on November 18th, 1928, in the black and white film “Steamboat Willie”…
Over the years, Mickey Mouse has become an icon in his own right… along with his beautiful wife Minnie of course!
He’s is one of the world’s most recognizable characters, but originally, Walt Disney, his creator, wanted to name him Mortimer, but then Walt’s wife Lily, said Mickey just sounded better.
Mortimer Mouse… just doesn’t have the same ring to it does it?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICKEY!
