Happy Anniversary, Mickey!
Coolguy-7 from USA
25 February 2000
I first saw this special on Vault Disney, which is what is on the Disney
Channel late at night. It features Mickey Mouse's history from the time
appeared on Walt Disney's drawing board to the days of the theme parks.
tells how it started when Walt Disney was coming back to Los Angeles from
New York. He had lost his latest cartoon creatin, Oswald the Rabbit so he
needed to come up with a new character: Mortimer (as Walt wanted to call
him) Mouse. When he arrived in L.A., the mouse had been changed to Mickey
by the suggestion of Walt's wife.
It showed part of the first Mickey Mouse cartoon, "Plane Crazy" in its
original silent form. After that, it showed part of Mickey's first
released, "Steamboat Willie." Other clips included, "Mickey's Gala
Premier", "The Pointer," and "Haunted House." The special told us about
Mickey's skyrocket to fame. They also showed complete cartoons (with the
beginning and ending titles cut off) like "The Symphony Hour" and "The
Nineties" Mickey sure has come a long way from the little mouse in "Plane
Crazy" who only wore shorts to the Mickey of today.
