The Mouseke-ears were designed by Disney storyman/Big Mooseketeer _Roy Williams

(1929), in which Mickey doffed the top of his head - ears and all - like a hat. See more
As I said to Pinocchio, "Pinoc, there are two ways to do anything - the right way and the wrong way. If you wanna be right, do things the right way, because if you do things the wrong way, that's the foolish way, and only fools do things the foolish way, which is the wrong way. Right?" Anyway, let me see? Where was I?
