Mickey mouse has been the Disney mascot since it’s creation. Mickey was first seen in a single test screening called Plane Crazy. Mickey officially debuted in the short film Steamboat Willie back in 1928, one of the first sound cartoons. He went on to appear in over 130 films, including The Band Concert (1935), Brave Little Tailor (1938), and Fantasia (1940). Mickey appeared primarily in short films, but also occasionally in feature-length films. Ten of Mickey’s cartoons were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, one of which, Lend a Paw, won the award in 1942. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So it is no wonder that when you see the two big ears on a mouse you think of Disney.
Disney has capitalized on Disney live stream with it’s own app and has grown in popularity around the world.
