It's Mickey Mouse's Birthday - Mickey Mouse first was seen in Plane Crazy, a single test screening. However, he officially debuted in Steamboat Willie (1928) on November 18, 1928 in New York City. Mickey went on to appear in over 130 films, primarily in short films, but also occasionally in feature-length films. Nine of Mickey's cartoons were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, one of which, Lend a Paw, won the award in 1942. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

According to Disney World, Mickey Mouse’s image is the most reproduced in the world. Over 7,500 items bear his likeness. Jesus is number two, and Elvis is number three. Mickey Mouse's likeness was conceived by Walt Disney and first drawn together with artist Ub Iwerks.

If you want to know what I am celebrating tomorrow feel free to return to this page after 10 pm (GMT - UK) when I will post a link to preview tomorrow's celebration puzzle.

I would have guessed Jesus and Elvis but not sure I would have come up with Mickey as No. 1. Make sense though now that I know it. Thanks for the info and images Mandy.

Thanks Francine, I hoped it would!!

Oh yes, I saw something about that too Ardy, I can't remember where either! Thanks

Mandy turns up in the most unexpected places Josie!!! I never realised just how well travelled she is! LOL

Thanks Barb - Mickey certainly is an iconic figure - even though he's been changed over the years, most people still recognize him, and the Walt Disney symbol too!

I was reading something yesterday about the change from black gloves to white. I don't remember if it were here on Jigidi or in the newspaper. Thanks, Mandy. Mickey Mouse is a standard from childhood for many of us. And he's older than I am and going strong. Guess there's hope for me!!! Hope I'm tat active at 85. :-))) Good one, Mandy.

That brings back memories! Thanks, Mandy. :-)
