Happy Eightieth Mickey Mouse!

November 18, 2008

Although the first appearance of Mickey Mouse was actually in the short animation Plane Crazy, which was released on May 15 1928, the Walt Disney Company has always stuck with November 18, 1928 (the release date of Steamboat Willie) as the official birthdate of their popular cartoon figure. Without this iconic character there might not be any modern animation films.

So we here at Comic(s) Relief wish you a happy eightieth birthday Mickey and many happy returns!
