Guess how old Mickey Mouse is today?
Happy Birthday to Mickey Mouse! Walt Disney’s iconic character turns 91 today!!
Mickey Mouse made his debut on November 18th, 1928 in the animated short, “Steamboat Willie” at the Colony Theatre in New York City. It was the first animated cartoon to feature synchronized sound. That seven-minute Mickey Mouse cartoon had over 10,000 drawings that would take anywhere from six months to a year to complete. Mickey’s first live stage show, “Mickey Mouse Ideas” happened in 1931.
The most popular piece of merchandise is the Mickey Mouse watch! 2.5 million watches were sold in the first two years of production.
He’s got one Oscar and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
By the way… the average mouse only lives about 2 years. lol
