Disney celebrates Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday with a 90-second video

The most beloved mouse and the showrunner for Disney Animation has turned 90! And to celebrate its mascot’s birthday Disney has released a 90-second video featuring 90 years of magic of Mickey Mouse, on 18 November.

The clip includes most famous and popular shorts of Mickey Mouse such as Plane Crazy, The Band Concert, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Thru the Mirror, Brave Little Tailor, Lonesome Ghosts, Hawaiian Holiday, and Get a Horse!, as well as films as Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers and Mickey’s Christmas Carol.

Besides that, The video has snippets from creator Walt Disney’s first cartoon, Steamboat Willie, which was the third Mickey short produced, but the first one to release on 18 November 1928, marking the recognised first appearance of both Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

In the eight-minute-long, black-and-white cartoon, Mickey pilots a steamboat and entertains his passenger, Minnie Mouse, by making musical instruments out of the menagerie on board, as IMDB reports.

Disney also released a video featuring birthday wishes from stars across the Disney, ABC, and Freeform families, including Cameron Dove (Marvel Rising), Yara Shahidi (grown-ish), Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph (Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger), Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists), and Mackenzie Foy (The Nutcracker and the Four Realms).

Mickey is all set to make his next reappearance on the big screen in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Wreck-It Ralph sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet, in theaters Wednesday, in a homage to 1940’s Fantasia.
