Can you believe this guy celebrated his 86th Birthday on Tuesday? He looks pretty good for 86, I think! It’s hard to imagine a character being able to stay relevant and entertain audiences for that long, but I guess that’s what makes Mickey so special! Of course, he has had a few tweaks and changes over time – So here’s a peek at Mickey’s different looks throughout the years…
I love this poster – we have it hanging at my parent’s house, and I especially love “Today” Mickey – he is so late 80’s early 90’s don’t you think?
Here he is on the opening day of Disneyland Park in 1955 with his creator, Walt Disney
And here he is on opening day of the Magic Kingdom at Disney World in Florida, 1971
Something tells me Mickey has a lot more entertaining to do, and that he will be delighting audiences of all ages for many years to come. So here’s to you Mickey Mouse – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
