By , Felix would lose popularity among theater audiences, and Pat Sullivan decided to produce all future Felix cartoons in sound as a result.
In Mickey's early films he was often characterized not as a hero, but as an ineffective young suitor to Minnie Mouse. The Opry House March 28, was the first time in which Mickey wore his white gloves. Mickey wears them in almost all of his subsequent appearances and many other characters followed suit. The three lines on the back of Mickey's gloves represent darts in the gloves' fabric extending from between the digits of the hand, typical of glove design of the era.
Although Mickey and Minnie still maintained their anthropomorphic characteristics, they were depicted as the size of regular mice and living with a community many other mice as pests in a home. Mickey and Minnie would later appear the size of regular humans in their own setting. In appearances with real humans, Mickey has been shown to be about two to three feet high. The Barnyard Battle April 25, was the only film to depict Mickey as a soldier and also the first to place him in combat.
The Karnival Kid was the first time Mickey spoke. Before this he had only whistled, laughed, and grunted. His first words were "Hot dogs! Mickey's Follies introduced the song "Minnie's Yoo-Hoo" which would become the theme song for Mickey Mouse films for the next several years. The "Minnie's Yoo-Hoo" song sequence was also later reused with different background animation as its own special short shown only at the commencement of s theater-based Mickey Mouse Clubs.
Shortly before the release of the film, Iwerks left to start his own studio, bankrolled by Disney's then-distributor Pat Powers.
Powers and Disney had a falling out over money due Disney from the distribution deal. It was in response to losing the right to distribute Disney's cartoons that Powers made the deal with Iwerks, who had long harbored a desire to head his own studio.
The departure is considered a turning point in Mickey's career, as well as that of Walt Disney. Walt lost the man who served as his closest colleague and confidant since Mickey lost the man responsible for his original design and for the direction or animation of several of the shorts released till this point. Later Disney Company reissues of the early cartoons tend to credit Walt Disney alone.
Disney and his remaining staff continued the production of the Mickey series, and he was able to eventually find a number of animators to replace Iwerks. As the Great Depression progressed and Felix the Cat faded from the movie screen, Mickey's popularity would rise, and by The Mickey Mouse Club would have one million members. Despite being eclipsed by the Silly Symphonies short the Three Little Pigs in , Mickey still maintained great popularity among theater audiences too, until , when polls showed that Popeye was more popular than Mickey.
About this time, story artists at Disney were finding it increasingly difficult to write material for Mickey.
As he had developed into a role model for children, they were limited in the types of gags they could make.
This led to Mickey taking more of a secondary role in some of his next films allowing for more emphasis on other characters. The tempestuous duck would provide Disney with seemingly endless story ideas and would remain a recurring character in Mickey's cartoons.
Mickey first appeared animated in color in Parade of the Award Nominees in , however, the film strip was created for the 5th Academy Awards ceremony and was not released to the public. Mickey's official first color film came in with The Band Concert. The Technicolor film process was used in the film production. Here Mickey conducted the William Tell Overture , but the band is swept up by a tornado.
It is said that conductor Arturo Toscanini so loved this short that, upon first seeing it, he asked the projectionist to run it again. In , The Band Concert was voted the third-greatest cartoon of all time in a poll of animation professionals. By colorizing and partially redesigning Mickey, Walt would put Mickey back on top once again, and Mickey would reach popularity he never reached before as audiences now gave him more appeal. However, by , the more manic Donald Duck would surpass the passive Mickey, resulting in a redesign of the mouse between and that put Mickey at the peak of his popularity.
Together, Mickey, Donald Duck, and Goofy would go on several adventures together. Mickey was redesigned by animator Fred Moore which was first seen in The Pointer Instead of having solid black eyes, Mickey was given white eyes with pupils, a Caucasian skin colored face, and a pear-shaped body.
In the 40's, he changed once more in The Little Whirlwind , where he used his trademark pants for the last time in decades, lost his tail, got more realistic ears that changed with perspective and a different body anatomy.
But this change would only last for a short period of time before returning to the one in " The Pointer ", with the exception of his pants. In his final theatrical cartoons in the s, he was given eyebrows, which were removed in the more recent cartoons. In Mickey appeared in his first feature-length film, Fantasia.
His screen role as The Sorcerer's Apprentice , set to the symphonic poem of the same name by Paul Dukas , is perhaps the most famous segment of the film and one of Mickey's most iconic roles.
The segment features no dialogue at all, only the music. The apprentice Mickey , not willing to do his chores, puts on the sorcerer's magic hat after the sorcerer goes to bed and casts a spell on a broom, which causes the broom to come to life and perform the most tiring chore—filling up a deep well using two buckets of water. When the well eventually overflows, Mickey finds himself unable to control the broom, leading to a near-flood.
After the segment ends, Mickey is seen in silhouette shaking hands with Leopold Stokowski , who conducts all the music heard in Fantasia. Mickey has often been pictured in the red robe and blue sorcerer's hat in merchandising. It was also featured into the climax of Fantasmic!
After , Mickey's popularity would decline until his re-emergence as a daily children's television personality. The last regular installment of the Mickey Mouse film series came in with The Simple Things in which Mickey and Pluto go fishing and are pestered by a flock of seagulls.
In the s, Mickey became more known for his appearances on television, particularly with The Mickey Mouse Club. This was followed up in with The Prince and the Pauper. Throughout the decades, Mickey Mouse competed with Warner Bros. Disney and Warner signed an agreement stating that each character had the same amount of screen time in the scene.
Similar to his animated inclusion into a live-action film on Roger Rabbit , Mickey made a featured cameo appearance in the television special The Muppets at Walt Disney World where he met Kermit the Frog. The two are established in the story as having been old friends. The Muppets have otherwise spoofed and referenced Mickey over a dozen times since the s. His most recent theatrical cartoon short was 's Get a Horse! Mickey has recently been announced to star in two films.
Since June 28, , Disney Channel has been airing new 3-minute Mickey Mouse shorts, with animator Paul Rudish at the helm, incorporating elements of Mickey's late twenties-early thirties look with a contemporary twist.
In August , ABC television announced a two-hour prime time special, Mickey's 90th spectacular , in honor of the iconic characters 90th birthday. The program will feature never-before-seen short videos. The show will be produced and directed by Don Mischer.
A large part of Mickey's screen persona is his famously shy, falsetto voice. From onward, Mickey was voiced by Walt Disney himself, a task in which Disney took great personal pride. However, by , Disney was becoming too busy with running the studio to do regular voice work which meant he could not do Mickey's voice on a regular basis anymore.
It is also speculated that his cigarette habit had damaged his voice over the years. MacDonald voiced Mickey in the remainder of the theatrical shorts and for various television and publicity projects up until his retirement in , although Walt would reprise Mickey's voice occasionally until his passing in , such as in the introductions to the original — run of The Mickey Mouse Club TV series, the "Fourth Anniversary Show" episode of the Disneyland TV series that aired on September 11, and the Disneyland USA at Radio City Music Hall show from Stalling was the very first person to provide lines for Mickey in the short The Karnival Kid.
Clarence Nash voiced Mickey in the short The Dognapper since Walt was traveling in Europe at the time and was unavailable to record his lines for Mickey for that short. Along with Disney, J. The short film Mickey's Christmas Carol marked the theatrical debut of Wayne Allwine as Mickey Mouse, who was the official voice of Mickey from until his death in He said, 'Just remember kid, you're only filling in for the boss.
From Walt, and now from Jimmy. Bret Iwan , a former Hallmark greeting card artist, is the current voice of Mickey. His first video game voice-over of Mickey Mouse can be heard in Kingdom Hearts: The Power of Two and the remake of Castle of Illusion. Mickey first appeared in comics after he had appeared in 15 commercially successful animated shorts and was easily recognized by the public.
Walt Disney was approached by King Features Syndicate with the offer to license Mickey and his supporting characters for use in a comic strip.
Disney accepted and Mickey made his first comic strip appearance on January 13, The first week or so of the strip featured a loose adaptation of " Plane Crazy ".
Minnie soon became the first addition to the cast. The strips first released between January 13, , and March 31, , has been occasionally reprinted in comic book form under the collective title "Lost on a Desert Island ".
Animation historian Jim Korkis notes "After the eighteenth strip, Iwerks left and his inker, Win Smith, continued drawing the gag-a-day format In early , after Iwerks' departure, Disney was at first content to continue scripting the Mickey Mouse comic strip, assigning the art to Win Smith. However, Disney's focus had always been in animation and Smith was soon assigned with the scripting as well. Smith was apparently discontent at the prospect of having to script, draw, and ink a series by himself as evidenced by his sudden resignation.
Disney then searched for a replacement among the remaining staff of the Studio. He selected Floyd Gottfredson , a recently hired employee. At the time Gottfredson was reportedly eager to work in animation and somewhat reluctant to accept his new assignment. Disney had to assure him the assignment was only temporary and that he would eventually return to animation.
Gottfredson accepted and ended up holding this "temporary" assignment from May 5, , to November 15, Walt Disney's last script for the strip appeared May 17, The storyline was completed on September 20, , and later reprinted in comic book form as Mickey Mouse in Death Valley.
This early adventure expanded the cast of the strip which to this point only included Mickey and Minnie. Among the characters who had their first comic strip appearances in this story were Clarabelle Cow, Horace Horsecollar, and Black Pete as well as the debuts of corrupted lawyer Sylvester Shyster and Minnie's uncle Mortimer Mouse. The Death Valley narrative was followed by Mr.
Slicker and the Egg Robbers , first printed between September 22 and December 26, , which introduced Marcus Mouse and his wife as Minnie's parents. Starting with these two early comic strip stories, Mickey's versions in animation and comics are considered to have diverged from each other.
While Disney and his cartoon shorts would continue to focus on comedy , the comic strip effectively combined comedy and adventure. This adventurous version of Mickey would continue to appear in comic strips and later comic books throughout the 20th and into the 21st century. The next artist to leave his mark on the character was Paul Murry in Dell Comics. While the stories at Western Publishing during the Silver Age emphasized Mickey as a detective in the style of Sherlock Holmes , in the modern era several editors and creators have consciously undertaken to depict a more vigorous Mickey in the mold of the classic Gottfredson adventures.
Gilbert and César Ferioli. In , he appeared in the Italian fantasy comic saga Wizards of Mickey. He became very popular in Egypt and got a comic book with his name. The comics were re-released by "Nahdat Masr" in and the first issues were sold out in less than 8 hours.

Mickey was produced as plush toys and figurines, and Mickey's image has graced almost everything from T-shirts to lunchboxes.

The seconds were indicated by a turning disk below Mickey. Mickey Mouse watches have been sold by other companies and designers throughout the years, including Timex , Elgin, Helbros, Bradley, Lorus, and Gérald Genta  The fictional character Robert Langdon from Dan Brown's novels was said to wear a Mickey Mouse watch as a reminder "to stay young at heart. In , Milton Bradley released the electronic talking game titled Mickey Says , with three modes featuring Mickey Mouse as its host.
As the official Walt Disney mascot, Mickey has played a central role in the Disney parks since the opening of Disneyland in As with other characters, Mickey is often portrayed by a non-speaking costumed actor.
In this form, he has participated in ceremonies and countless parades. A popular activity with guests is getting to meet and pose for photographs with the mouse. As of the presidency of Barack Obama who jokingly referred to him as "a world leader who has bigger ears than me"  Mickey has met every U.
President since Harry Truman , with the exception of Lyndon B. Mickey also features in several specific attractions at the Disney parks. Mickey's Toontown Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland is a themed land which is a recreation of Mickey's neighborhood. Buildings are built in a cartoon style and guests can visit Mickey or Minnie's houses, Donald Duck 's boat, or Goofy 's garage. This is a common place to meet the characters. At Main Street Cinema several of Mickey's short films are shown on a rotating basis; the sixth film is always Steamboat Willie.
Mickey plays a central role in Fantasmic! Disneyland Resort , Disney's Hollywood Studios a live nighttime show which famously features Mickey in his role as the Sorcerer's Apprentice. Mickey was also a central character in the now-defunct Mickey Mouse Revue Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland which was an indoor show featuring animatronic characters.
In addition to Mickey's overt presence in the parks, numerous images of him are also subtly included in sometimes unexpected places. This phenomenon is known as " Hidden Mickey ", involving hidden images in Disney films, theme parks, and merchandise.
Like many popular characters, Mickey has starred in many video games , including Mickey Mousecapade on the Nintendo Entertainment System , Mickey Mania: Mickey plays a major role in the Kingdom Hearts series, as the king of Disney Castle and aide to the protagonist, Sora.
King Mickey wields the Keyblade , a weapon in the form of a key that has the power to open any lock and combat darkness. Epic Mickey , featuring a darker version of the Disney universe, was released in for the Wii.

Among these, Lend a Paw was the only film to actually win the award. Additionally, in Walt Disney received an honorary Academy Award in recognition of Mickey's creation and popularity.
In , four of Mickey's cartoons were included in the book The 50 Greatest Cartoons which listed the greatest cartoons of all time as voted by members of the animation field.

He was the first cartoon character to receive the honor and only the second fictional character after Kermit the Frog in In the United States, protest votes are often made in order to indicate dissatisfaction with the slate of candidates presented on a particular ballot or to highlight the inadequacies of a particular voting procedure. Since most states' electoral systems do not provide for blank balloting or a choice of " None of the Above ", most protest votes take the form of a clearly non-serious candidate's name entered as a write-in vote.
Mickey Mouse is often selected for this purpose. Mickey Mouse's name has also been known to appear fraudulently on voter registration lists, such as in the U. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, it also means poor quality or counterfeit. However, in parts of Australia it can mean excellent or very good rhyming slang for "grouse". For this reason, Mickey has been used frequently in anti-American satire , such as the infamous underground cartoon " Mickey Mouse in Vietnam " There have been numerous parodies of Mickey Mouse, such as the 2-page parody "Mickey Rodent" by Will Elder published in Mad 19, in which the mouse walks around unshaven and jails Donald Duck out of jealousy over the duck's larger popularity.
Like all major Disney characters, Mickey Mouse is not only copyrighted but also trademarked , which lasts in perpetuity as long as it continues to be used commercially by its owner. So, whether or not a particular Disney cartoon goes into the public domain , the characters themselves may not be used as trademarks without authorization. Because of the Copyright Term Extension Act of the United States sometimes called the 'Mickey Mouse Protection Act' because of extensive lobbying by the Disney corporation and similar legislation within the European Union and other jurisdictions where copyright terms have been extended, works such as the early Mickey Mouse cartoons will remain under copyright until at least However, some copyright scholars argue that Disney's copyright on the earliest version of the character may be invalid due to ambiguity in the copyright notice for Steamboat Willie.
The Walt Disney Company has become well known for protecting its trademark on the Mickey Mouse character—whose likeness is closely associated with the company—with particular zeal. In , Disney threatened legal action against three daycare centers in Florida for having Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters painted on their walls. The characters were removed, and rival Universal Studios replaced them with Universal cartoon characters. In , a group of underground cartoonists calling themselves the Air Pirates , after a group of villains from early Mickey Mouse films, produced a comic called Air Pirates Funnies.
In the first issue, cartoonist Dan O'Neill depicted Mickey and Minnie Mouse engaging in explicit sexual behavior and consuming drugs. As O'Neill explained, "The air pirates were…some sort of bizarre concept to steal the air, pirate the air, steal the media…. Since we were cartoonists, the logical thing was Disney. The outcome of the case remains controversial among free-speech advocates.
The animated short, which features the mouse as a kepi -wearing soldier fighting cat enemies in German-style helmets, was viewed by censors as a negative portrayal of Germany. A mids German newspaper article read:.
