Mickey and Minnie

Walt Disney replaced his first star, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, with Mickey Mouse in 1928. Oswald had a habit of flirting with the females. Disney created Minnie Mouse as a love interest for his new star. Spunky Minnie Mouse was designed to be a flapper, like the fashionable girls of the period.
 
Mickey and Minnie were first seen together in Plane Crazy, released in May 1928. In that short, Minnie takes off with Mickey in his plane, but parachutes out when Mickey forces a kiss upon her.
 
In several short features after that, The Gallopin’ Gaucho (December 1928), Steamboat Willie (November 1928), and The Barn Dance (March 1929), Mickey and a rival compete for Minnie’s affections.
 
In Mickey’s Follies (June 1929), Mickey declares his feelings for Minnie by singing the song “Minnie’s Yoo Hoo” and calls her his “sweetie.” That song became the theme of the couple’s series.
 
In shorts like Wild Waves (August 1929), The Cactus Kid (April 1930), and The Fire Fighters (August 1930), Mickey saves his sweetheart from one disaster after another. On the Mickey and Minnie stamp of The Art of Disney Series, Minnie plants a grateful kiss on her hero’s cheek.
