M-I-C…K-E-Y Mouse!

Hello, my name is Addy.  Today, November 18, is Mickey Mouse’s birthday!  Our class is celebrating this special day.

Minnie Power!

Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse in 1928.  Walt Disney first created Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, but Universal Studios took Oswald away from Disney.  So, Walt Disney created Mickey. Both of the characters have similar faces and bodies, but the ears are different because one is a rabbit and one is a mouse.  Mickey was first in “Steamboat Willie” and got really famous because Disney was able to attach sound to the movements in the cartoon. That hadn’t been done before.  Since then Mickey Mouse has become a famous character.

Hi, I am Bailey.  To celebrate we wore Mickey Mouse shirts and hats.  I wore my Minnie hat and Minnie jacket.  Let’s talk about the changes Mickey has had.  When he was first created he had solid black eyes.  Now his eyes have pupils.  At first his feet were smaller than they are now.  His shorts changed colors and the buttons have changed shape.  His nose has changed, too.  It was longer when he was first made and now its shorter.  So, you can see that Mickey has changed as he gets older just like we do!  

That is a very fancy set of Minnie Mouse ears!
