Mickey Mouse’s Birthday is today, November 18th. Mickey Mouse was born on November 18, 1928. That means that Mickey Mouse is 85 years old and you know that the theme parks of Walt Disney will celebrate in style for their #1 Mouse. So to honor Mickey and his birthday, dig in your closet and find your mouse ears. Dust them off, place them on your head proud because you know in your heart your a closet Mouseketeer.
Mickey’s first appearance with sound — and the first of his films to be distributed — was in “Steamboat Willie” on Nov. 18, 1928. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
