    Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse !!!

    Eighty years ago today, on November 18, 1928 audiences were treated to the first performance of the film Steamboat Willie starring a young mouse named Mickey. In the nine decades since he has grown to be one of the most iconic figures in Americana. Tens of millions of us grew up singing the Mickey Mouse theme song (and some of you have it running through your head right now).

    For millions of children and adults worldwide one of the most special memories is our first (or fiftieth) visit to one of the Disney Theme Parks.

    While there are certainly many reasons we could be critical of the way the Disney company has behaved over the years, the fact remains that this little mouse and the magic he created has brought smiles to all of us.

    So take a moment to share your memories and wish Mickey a happy 80th.

    As Walt Disney was fond of saying.............. It all started with a little mouse.

    Re: Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse !!!

    I remember my first trip to Disneyland back in 1993, I was 4 years old. I grew up on Disney Channel and was completely amazed that my grandma was taking me to meet Mickey and Minnie. When we got there, we went to Minnie's house and took our picture with her. Mickey wasn't home, I was heartbroken.

    We started to leave the park that day when my grandma noticed a group of people start to gather; there he was, the one and only mouse himself. It was just like in the old commercial when the girl was all sad about not seeing Mickey and all of a sudden, there he was. It was so special, I still remember it after all this time.

    I can't believe Mickey Mouse is an octogenarian. He still looks good though!

    Many happy returns to the most important mouse of all.

    Wow, 80 years, thats quite an accomplishment. Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse!!!. I'm wearing my Mickey Mouse Club T-Shirt, and my Mickey Mouse watch today. Disney has always been a huge part of my life, and some of my earliest childhood memories are of the mouse. Many happy returns Mickey.
