Happy 88th Birthday, Mickey Mouse!

2016-06-17_08-50-06One of the most famous quotes from Walt Disney is “I hope we never lose sight of one thing…that it was all started with a mouse.”

Mickey Mouse (and Minnie) was the beginning of what the Disney company is today.  This plucky little mouse has brought smiles and laughter to generations of audiences.  He’s done this not only in the US, but the world over.  And, to commemorate his 88th birthday, he did a world tour.

Though his look has changed a bit throughout the years he is still easily recognized throughout the world.  And, for 88, he looks pretty good for his age!

Mickey Mouse is that cherished character that kids and adults love.  Having “homecomings” throughout the various parks in the world make this birthday a memorable one.  After all, these parks started with the Mouse himself!

So, happy birthday, Mickey Mouse!  And we look forward to more.
