Mickey Mouse’s Birthday!

Happy Birthday Mickey!  Today is Mickey Mouse’s birthday!  He was created by Walt Disney as a happy mouse that later became the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company.  Mickey Mouse typically wears red shorts, large yellow shoes and white gloves and is the most recognized cartoon character in the world.

Mickey began his career in the movie Steamboat Willie which was the first cartoon with synchronized sound.  Over his career, Mickey Mouse appeared in 130 films and was nominated for multiple Academy Awards.  Mickey was the first cartoon to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Mickey can currently be seen daily at the Disney parks.

If you want to join in the fun, Disney Parks around the world are planning some very special celebrations for the very special mouse.
