The beloved character Minnie Mouse first appeared in the cartoon Steamboat Willie, along with Mickey Mouse, on November 8, 1928. Originally voiced by Walt Disney himself, Minnie soon appeared in comic strips and other short cartoons, often as Mickey’s love interest and a damsel in distress.
By the late 1930s, Minnie’s popularity had begun to wane. She appeared less often in cartoons, replaced by characters such as Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto. Minnie made her comeback, however, in the 1980s, when she first starred in her own feature length film. She has since been seen in a leading or supporting role in many Disney cartoons.
Minnie Mouse makes appearances in other media as well. She can be found in abundance on Disney merchandise, in video games such as Kingdom Hearts, and in person at Disney theme parks.
