It's Michael Theodore Mouse's aka Mickey Mouse's 91st birthday today! So let's celebrate his big day with some fun and intriguing facts that you probably didn't know about him. And then, let's end it with shopping some cool Mickey styles!
Walt Disney was so inspired by the pet mouse he had as a child that he invented Mickey Mouse. He was originally going to call him Mortimer, but thank god for his wife who suggested Mickey instead.
You know he's a real celebrity when he's got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt still haven't gotten their stars yet! Can you believe it?
This 'Billion Dollar Mouse' was voiced by over 5 people and was the first-ever cartoon character to speak! And his first words were "Hot Dogs!"
Hey, do you want to be the Mickey Mouse mascot at Disneyland? If you're an actor whose height is between 4' 8" and 5' 2" you actually can!
If you do visit any of the six Disneylands around the world, play a game of 'Hidden Mickeys'! Look for silhouettes and hidden images of Mickey all over the theme park. It's basically a fun scavenger hunt, so always be on the lookout!
Mickey and Minnie are actually married according to Walt Disney, even though they never showed it on the big screen! The two people who gave the voice-overs for Mickey and Minnie were married in real life too. Sweet, right?
Like Bruno Mars, Mickey went double-Platinum as well all on his own with the disco album he released in 1979. What didn't this mouse do?
Did you know that in 1935 Mickey Mouse films were banned from cinemas by the Romanian authorities? They claimed that children would be "scared to see a ten-foot mouse in the movie theatre"!
If you thought he's known as 'Mickey' globally, you're wrong! He is called Mi Lao Shu in China, Topolino in Italy and Musse Pigg in Sweden. You're welcome!
Mickey's rival was none other than Minnie's ex-boyfriend, Mortimer Mouse. We guess times haven't changed since then, have they?
It's a well-known fact that Mickey Mouse has managed to win the hearts of children and adults over the years. Whether it was his TV shows and movies which have been trademarked as 'cultural classics' or his close connection to the 'happiest place on earth', we're glad Mickey will live on forever. So shop NNNOW for a wide range of timeless Mickey styles that'll live on for years!
