Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse is the iconic mascot of the Walt Disney Company. His girlfriend is Minnie Mouse, with whom they own a pet dog named Pluto. His first debut was in Steamboat Willie in 1930. Since then, Mickey has appeared in over 130 films, most notably Brave Little Tailor and Fantasia. Several television shows center around this iconic character, such as The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and the new Mickey Mouse Cartoons. With video games such as Kingdom Hearts and Epic Mickey comic books and strips, even hidden in the theme park, you’ll find Mickey everywhere. He is easily one of the most recognizable cartoon characters, with a whole march dedicated to his name: “Who’s the leader of the club that’s made for you and me? M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!”

Yen Sid

Yen Sid is a character from the 1940 animated movie, Fantasia. He is a powerful sorcerer whose magic mainly comes from his hat. In the segment The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, his goal is to teach Mickey Mouse all he knows about magic. Later he appears in the Kingdom Hearts video games. Fun fact: If you spell his name backwards, it spells Disney. We don’t think that’s a coincidence at all.
