Mickey Mouse celebrates 90th birthday

LOS ANGELES -- The world's most beloved mouse is 90 years old! And, everyone wants to celebrate.

Disney tweeted the following video Sunday with stars sending Mickey Mouse best wishes on his big day.

According to Disney's website, Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse made his debut on November 18, 1928 when "Steamboat Willie" premiered in New York.

Before Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse, he made Oswald the lucky rabbit.  But in a dispute with his business partner at Universal, Disney lost the rights to Oswald.

The loss of his first character inspired the birth of the mouse.

Disney also tweeted a 90 second video of Mickey over the past 90 years.

 

Mickey was the first cartoon character with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That honor came in 1978 for Mickey's 50th birthday.
