Mickey Mouse

The world’s most iconic mouse was born on November 18, 1928, in the first Disney cartoon with synchronized sound, “Steamboat Willie.” Even back then, Mickey had a mischievous side — as a deckhand on a riverboat, he plays a song using animals as his instruments and the captain banishes him to the galley, where he must peel potatoes. A 12″ Mickey Mouse cowboy doll cost $2 in 1935. This classic character, who first appeared in a December 1935 issue of the magazine, has been featured on thousands of merchandise items and starred in more than 120 cartoons.

Fun fact: Did you know that Disney wanted to name Mickey something else: Mortimer Mouse
