Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse

80 years ago today, the Colony Theater in New York aired a black and white cartoon of a spunky (and much angrier than Disney’s modern Mickey!) mouse and his railway adventures. That cinematic debut, called Steamboat Willie, was the first Mickey Mouse cartoon to have sound. As such, November 18th is widely considered Mickey’s birthday.

So…happy 80th, Mickey! Glad to see you mellowed some with age.

And it’s no surprise, since he’s been around so long, that Mickey is plenty collectible.
