Mickey Mouse Day

Mickey Mouse Day is celebrated in the US on November 18th. A magical holiday was created for those who fell in love with the character from childhood! He is recognizable all over the world, clothes, accessories, toys are created in his honor, pictures are painted, new cartoons are released. We won’t believe it if you have never had a little thing with a cute face. It’s not too late to buy it!


Mickey Mouse was invented in 1928 by Walt Disney. He was not a character that the animator dreamed of launching, but became a replacement. Instead, the Happy Rabbit was supposed to win the hearts, but this did not happen. Mickey is the personification of childhood, joy, smile, and later the happiest place on the planet – Disney Land!

The charming mouse appeared on the screens in the cartoon “Plane Crazy”, but the audience did not immediately fall in love with it. I had to wait for the release of several episodes so that Mickey touched the heart of everyone who looked at the TV at that moment. The character received Oscar nominations, was called an icon, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Since then, other members of the family have been created: Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy.

Interesting facts

Surprisingly, Mickey:

  • took part in more than 130 films;
  • originally had the name Mortimer. However, Walt’s wife insisted that the nickname was inappropriate. As a result, a decision was made to rename;
  • visited New York City in 1934 for a Thanksgiving Day parade – residents were presented with a huge ball in his image;
  • owes his movements to Charlie Chaplin, because he was taken as the basis for development;
  • said the first word in 1929 – “hot dog”;
  • attempted suicide in the comic. Sources claimed that the idea for the plot belonged to Disney. It’s good that the story ended happily and the cute character survived.

How to celebrate

Remember your favorite cartoons with Mickey, review them! Tell the kids about it, show the comics. Purchase products with his trademark smile, organize a party in his honor. We are sure that adults do not mind taking part in the event.
