Mickey Mouse Birthday Week! Walt Wednesdays: A Friend For Life

“Mickey Mouse is to me. a symbol of independence. He was a means to an end. He popped out of Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner. Born of necesity, the little fellow literally freed us of immediate worry. He provided the means for extending our organization to its present dimensions and for extending the medium of cartoon animation to new entertainment levels. He spelled production liberation for us.” 

-Walt Disney

“The life and ventures of Mickey Mouse have been closely bound up with my own personal and professional life.” 

-Walt Disney
