2 Cents: Mickey’s 90th Birthday

Central PA Live

The world’s most beloved mouse is 90 years old!

Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse made his debut on November 18, 1928 when “Steamboat Willie” premiered in New York.

Before Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse, he made Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, but in a dispute with his business partner at Universal, Disney lost the rights to Oswald.

The loss of his first character brought along the birth of the mouse. Mickey was the first cartoon character with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That hone came in 1978 for Mickey’s 50th Birthday.
