Starting tomorrow, November 19, 2017, I plan on bringing back nickelodeon and disney channel posts because I like them.
Besides my own posts I plan on sharing Youtube videos from both channels because both have great content. I hope this is a new fun feature.
How did Mickey Mouse become the king of the Disney house? Well, we can thank a train whistle and mr. Disney’s wife for the idea.
The year was 1928 and Mr. Disney and his wife mrs. Lillian Disney were in New York City when they learned that Mr. Disney’s distributer got the rights to his most famous character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. So, The disneys struck out forL.A.
According to one accountDisney thought the train whistle sounded like ”maowww-a-mouse” and dreamed up a new character called Mortimer Mouse. Lillian didn’t like the name and suggested Mickey as a more catchy moniker, and he agreed. (Others report that he was thinking about a pet field mouse that had wandered into his studio years before in Kansas City.)
In Los Angeles, Disney began to work on Mickey Mouse right away. He registered the Mickey trademark and began brainstorming with Iwerks, his loyal friend from Kansas City, one of the few who had not quit his original team. And the rest they say is history.
Happy Birthday to the coolest mouse that I don’t know personally but who helped me grow up. Mickey you are the man erm the mouse.
In 1928, Mickey Mouse appeared for the first time, with Walt Disney doing the voice of his soon-to-be-famous creation, in Steamboat Willie, the first fully synchronized sound cartoon produced. He wasn’t always the mouse that runs that house.
Before steam boat willy we had Plane Crazy. The New York Times describes it like this:Mickey Mouse is depicted as a swashbuckling pilot who enlists the help of a barnyard of animals to build a small plane. By studying a book, ”How to Fly,” he gets it constructed and goes barnstorming across the countryside.Minnie Mouse also makes her debut in the film. She is a young ladylike mouse who bats her eyelashes, and Mickey falls for her. He tries to impress her by taking her for a spin in his plane. We see them in the open cockpit, happily barnstorming over housetops — until he tries to smooch with her in midflight. She smacks him, jumps out and falls to earth, using her bloomers as a parachute. Mickey crashes into a tree, smashing the plane to smithereens, but survives, unscarred, with his lucky horseshoe.
Drawn by Ubbe Iwerks, one of Disney’s original animators, Mickey is presented as a happy-go-lucky character full of boyish mischief. Not much has changed.
So, what did the first Mickey look like?
Per The Times: He began life with a round body, round black ears, round head, round black nose and eye sockets, and round buttons on his shorts. Originally, he had no shoes or gloves, but he did have a long curling tail, which eventually disappeared.
Circles are the most perfect shape because they have no corners to draw. Anyone can draw a circle.
The circle is a shape that never ends.”This is the enchanting Mickey that inspired 135 films, 73 years of comic books, the Mickey Mouse Club television shows, figurines, Christmas ornaments, scores of books and toys, and global adoration” (nyt, 2001.)
