Mickey Mouse is the most famous mouse in the world.
Few characters are as emblematic as Mickey and have accompanied so many generations.
He is the most distinctive character from Disney.
"If you can dream it, you can do it. Remember this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse."
Mickey Mouse's birth, same as his creator's, sounds more like a legend.
The character was thought of by Walt Disney in March 1927 during a train trip from New York to Los Angeles.
The Disney Company had recently lost the rights for Oswald the Rabbit, and they urgently needed a new protagonist for their stories.
And this is how, mixing necessity with the collaboration between Ub Iwerks (providing shape and movement) and Disney (providing voice and an animated personality), Mickey Mouse was born.
In the beginning, his name was going to be Mortimer, but following his wife's advice, Lillian, the name was changed to Mickey, which sounded less arrogant.
Mickey Mouse's birthday is officially on November 18th.
This date commemorates the release of "Steamboat Willie," the first sound animated short film, starred in by the mouse, though this was not his first appearance.
His first appearance was in "Plane Crazy," released on May 15th 1928, a short film based on Charles Lindbergh's flight, where the mouse was accompanied by his beloved Minnie.
To the company's disappointment, "Plane Crazy" didn't reach the expected success.
However, they still started the production of a new work, "The Gallopin' Gaucho," which didn't find a distributor either.
It had to wait until the success of "Steamboat Willie" to be released.
In this story, Mickey is a show-off, quite different to the loving mouse we all know nowadays.
Mickey Mouse, now, is more of an enthusiastic and optimistic hero.
He is fun and he loves acting naughty!
Acting this way sometimes leads him to live big adventures!
Clever and determined, Mickey is very brave, and he is always successful no matter how crazy is the situation he drags himself into.
Walt Disney himself was Mickey's voice for 17 years, from 1928 till 1947, when he was replaced by the sound technician Jimmy MacDonald.
From 1977 onwards, Mickey's voice was that of Wayne Allwine, until 2009, when Bret Iwan started doing it.
During the 30s, comic strips starred by the little mouse started to come out.
The first Mickey Mouse clubs started to appear in 1929.
A year later, there were more than 800 delegations, with more than a million members.
Mickey was a pioneer in the world of merchandising - toys, clothes, and books were sold with great success.
It didn't take long for Disney to grow huge fame thanks to the mouse.
In 1934, Mickey was already surrounded by his inséparable Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and the evil Donald Duck.
Because of this short-tempered duck, Mickey went through some tough times.
In the 40s, the little mouse had a confrontation with Donald, born thanks to his own adventures!
Walt Disney decided to give Mickey the protagonism he had lost, and made the film Fantasia, one of the most innovative movies of the Disney factory.
Even though the movie was a box office disaster, the Sorcerer's Apprentice sequence sent him right back to stardom.
In the chronicles of the "History of Disney," Mickey is described as a mouse whose head is a circle with another circle as the nose.
His body is a pear, and he has a long tail.
His legs are tubes that go inside big shoes to make him look like a kid using his father's shoes.
Originally, Mickey Mouse didnt wear any white gloves.
They first appeared in 1929 in the shortfilm "The Opry House," making it a lot easier to animate his hands.
We could see his animated red pants and yellow shoes for the first time in "The Band Concert," in 1935 - his first short film in color.
The great popularity Mickey had acquired was obvious in WWII.
During the D-Day Normandy landings, Mickey Mouse was the key word used.
This little mouse was also the first cartoon character to have a star in the Walk of Fame in Hollywood.
Since his creation, Mickey has lived together with kids all around the world, and his name is different depending on the country.
For example, in Italy his name is Topolino, in Switzerland he is known as Musse Pig, and he goes by Mi Lao Shu in China.
Mickey Mouse has starred more than 100 movies as well as several series.
As all the other characters in the Disney factory, he has appeared in lots of video games for all possible platforms.
Mickey is a very important character in the Kingdom Hearts videogames saga, where he is the king of the DIsney Castle.
Mickey Mouse is one of the most famous cartoons in the world, and a great deal of Disney's success is thanks to him.
Nowadays, children and adults still love Mickey, and it seems his star will never stop shining.
