In honor of the anniversary of the most famous mouse in the world, we tell how he was born, how he took his first steps and how one of the largest entertainment corporations of our time began.
In 1934, the composer Cole Porter wrote the song “You’re the Top” (now it could be translated as “You Cosmos, Baby”).
