Happy Birthday to the Big Cheese!

Mickey Mouse made his official debut on November 18th, 1928 in the short, Steam Boat Willie. Since his debut, Mickey has won over the hearts of many through his countless adventures. He is the most recognizable cartoon character in the world. So much so that he was the first of his kind to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Mickey continues to entertain through television, appearances at the Disney Parks, and even lends himself to be featured in a few video games. He is also the primary mascot of The Walt Disney Company and its many branches.

In honor of the Big Cheese we have all grown to know and love, I thought it would be nice to revisit some of his best moments. Happy 86th Birthday, Mickey!

"Plane Crazy" was the first short Mickey was featured in.
However, "Steam Boat Willie" was where Mickey became a star.

In "The Brave Little Tailor", Mickey not only shows that he is resourceful,
but he also demonstrates that it doesn't matter who or what you are. 
You can be used to do great things.

Who couldn't forget this famous scene from the film "Fantasia"?!

This has to be one of my favorite Mickey shorts and how much more
appropriate to end this tribute showing that one time the gang
got together to wish him a Happy Birthday!

What is your favorite Mickey Mouse short?
