Happy Birthday, Mickey Mouse!

18 Nov 145930

Today is Mickey Mouse’s 86th birthday! And who better to tell us a little about him than Uncle Walt?

“I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing—that it was all started by a mouse.”
—Walt Disney

Walt and Mickey

“The life and ventures of Mickey Mouse have been closely bound up with my own personal and professional life. It is understandable that I should have sentimental attachment for the little personage who played so big a part in the course of Disney Productions and has been so happily accepted as an amusing friend wherever films are shown around the world. He still speaks for me and I still speak for him.”
—Walt Disney

“All we ever intended for him or expected of him was that he should continue to make people everywhere chuckle with him and at him.We didn’t burden him with any social symbolism, we made him no mouth piece for frustrations or harsh satire. Mickey was simply a little personality assigned to the purposes of laughter.”
—Walt Disney

“When people laugh at Mickey Mouse it’s because he’s so human; and that is the secret of his popularity.”
—Walt Disney
