Mickey Mouse was born on 1928. He is one of the most recognizable cartoon characters ever. Walt Disney got the inspiration for Mickey Mouse from his old pet mouse he used to have on his farm. In 1925, Hugh Harman drew some sketches of mice around a photograph of Walt Disney. These inspired Ub Iwerks to create a new mouse character. In "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", he shared screen time with Bugs Bunny. When Eddie Valiant is in Toontown, he accidentally falls down from a building. Mickey and Bugs appear parachuting and comment on the whole situation. Like many other popular characters, Mickey has starred in many video games, comics, toys. When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human, and that is the secret of his popularity.
