Mickey Mouse made his debut in 1928 with the animated short Steamboat Willie, which was Disney’s first synchronized sound cartoon. He gained immense popularity over the years, later starring in the classical animated musical Fantasia in 1940 and The Mickey Mouse Club variety show starting in 1955.

Mickey Mouse got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1978.

Another major milestone is right around the corner; in 2023, Disney will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its founding by brothers Walt and Roy O.
