The Magic of Mickey turns 90: Enduring Enchantment!
1925. Disney Studios. California.
Animator, Hugh Harmon on a whim, sketched some cartoon mice around the photograph of businessman Walt Disney. Young artist UbbeEert (or UbIwerks) intrigued by the sketches, tweaked them to create a cartoon mouse with white gloves, yellow gloves and a goofy grin. Disney christened him Mortimer Mouse but his wife Lillian convinced him to change it.
Three years later, in 1928, Mickey took the world by storm in Steamboat Willie, the iconic animated short film directed by Walt Disney and UbIwerks. And so was born the most enduring and enchanting cartoon character the world has seen till date.
The fascination that Mickey Mouse and his charming girlfriend, Minnie Mouse, hold out is unique in that it continues to charm young and old, and never goes out of fashion. From infant clothing to young-wear, Mickey finds himself trending everywhere this 90th year of his being created.
