The History of Mickey Mouse
He was co-created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks in 1928, debuting in the cartoon classic “Steamboat Willie.” The first animation to feature comedic uses of sound, it quickly overtook the competition. Ever since then, the anthropomorphic mouse has grown from being a mere character in animated cartoons, comic strips and musical performances to a full-length film and video game star. Not just an icon and mascot of The Walt Disney Company, he is one of the most famous animated characters in the world, and continues to be re-invented for new generations to discover and enjoy.
