Walt Disney introduced Mickey Mouse in 1928 in the cartoon “Steamboat Willie,” the first cartoon ever produced with synchronized sound. Disney himself provided Mickey’s voice.
 
Mickey went on to star in more than 120 cartoons, but he began to play less of a role. By 1938, Disney had dropped the designation “Mickey Mouse Cartoons” and identified each short by its major character instead.
 
Some cartoons were taken over by Pluto. The unnamed bloodhound that later became Pluto first appeared in the Mickey Mouse cartoon “The Chain Gang” (1930). Unlike many other Disney characters, this animal was never given a speaking voice.
 
In “The Moose Hunt” (1931), Pluto appeared as Mickey’s faithful pet and was given his name. When a moose chases the two of them over a cliff, Pluto flaps his ears and flies them both to safety. In 1937, Pluto received his first starring role in “Pluto’s Quinpuplets.”
 
The Disney director Charles Nichols supervised most of the shorts with Mickey and Pluto in the 1940s. His gentle, cute approach helped shape these characters into the exuberant, playful pup and the cheerful, indulgent master that are celebrating a birthday on “The Art of Disney” stamp.
