Mickey Mouse was born on November 18, 1928, according to promotional materials from The Walt Disney Company. That was the release date of Steamboat Willie… According to legend, Walt Disney planned to name his little star “Mortimer Mouse” until his wife suggested the name of Mickey Mouse instead… Mickey’s longtime girlfriend is Minnie Mouse and his dog is named Pluto… The Mickey Mouse Club was revived in 1977 and again in the 1990s, when its cast members (or “Mouseketeers”) included future music stars Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Justin Timberlake. The original show launched the career of Annette Funicello… Mickey Mouse’s modern-day cousins at Disney include The Little Mermaid and Jessica Rabbit.
