Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse! The official Disney mascot visited the set of ABC News’ Good Morning America to celebrate his 88th birthday and premiere his new music video, “What We Got.” His appearance in New York City is the culmination of his worldwide birthday tour, where he surprised fans and friends in Los Angeles, Kyoto, Shanghai, Rome, Paris, Cusco and Rio de Janeiro while making the music video.
In celebration, Disney Channel will air blocks of Mickey Mouse programming, including the premieres of two new cartoon series, and Disney Junior will debut the teaser trailer for the upcoming new series Mickey and the Roadster Racers. Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts will have special parade moments to mark the occasion.
Mickey’s birthday is celebrated in honor of the release of his first theatrical film, Steamboat Willie, on November 18, 1928. Since then, he has starred in more than 100 cartoons and can currently be seen on Disney Channel in the Emmy®-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon series.
