Mickey Mouse who is the friend of Donald Duck and one of the most popular animal cartoon characters, was created as a replacement for “Oswald The Lucky Rabbit”, another cartoon character. Interestingly they couldn’t find a distributor for the debut movie of Mickey Mouse, which was a short cartoon named “Plane Crazy”.

Mickey Mouse was created in 1928, few years before the creation of his friend Donald duck. The cartoon “Plane Crazy” had the test screening on May 15, 1928. The founders had once stated about the beginning of everything as “It was all started from a mouse”.

The second movie with Mickey Mouse “The Gallopin’ Gaucho” also was not released due to the lack of a distributor. However, the third movie made with Mickey Mouse as the central character “Steamboat Willie” was released on November 18, 1928 in New York and it is considered as the debutant movie of the great cartoon character Mickey Mouse!

Goofy, the funny dog cartoon character was introduced in 1932, through “Mickey’s Revue”. Introduced as a close friend of Donald and Mickey, Goofy is part of great cartoon movies that are extremely funny. Goofy was originally named as “Dippy Dawg” but later the nick name Goofy became popular.

i can't hear Donald Duck mentioned without remembering my daughter's early reaction to a cartoon of him on TV. She was about two or three. The cartoon came on, and she watched for a moment, then turned and walked away, saying indignantly, "Ducks can't talk!"
