Mickey Mouse. Great symbol of America

The official birthday of Mickey Mouse is unknown and moreover, it is not entirely clear who his parents were.

According to one version, Mickey was the first to draw Walt Disney, the second – his friend and colleague Ab Iverks. Quite often, in the biographies of Mickey it is indicated that he is the fruit of the joint work of Disney and Iverks.

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.

Mouse-fire: Mickey Mouse again on the big screen
On the screens of Russia and the world came out one of the best films of the year. About a thousand and a half copies. But you will not find reviews on it. How so? Very simple. Horse Fire (such a bizarre title was given to the film by distributors desperate to translate Get a horse!) Lasts only seven minutes and is glued as a free bonus to the beginning of the new Disney full meter Frozen. So if you are already thinking about this latest remix of The Snow Queen – lively and touching, although overloaded with stupid songs – try not to be late for the start. Continue reading
