Fun Mickey Mouse Facts

The first Mickey Mouse Club was formed in 1929, at the Fox Dome Theater in Ocean Park, California.  Soon others formed to meet every Saturday for an afternoon of cartoons and games in local theaters.  The several million Mouse Clubbers had a secret handshake, special member greeting, code of behavior, and even a special club song, Minnie’s Yoo Hoo.

The Encyclopedia Britannica gave Mickey Mouse his own entry in 1934.

Mickey was originally drawn with circles for his head, body, and ears.  That design was changed in 1939 to the more pear-shaped appearance we see now.  Pupils were also added to his eyes.

Mickey’s greatest honor came in 1944 when the Allied Forces under the command of General Dwight D. Eisenhower invaded Normandy.  The code name for the D-Day invasion was “Mickey Mouse.”

At the beginning of World War II, Disney Studios suspended almost all commercial activity and concentrated on aiding the war effort with training films, goodwill tours, and designing posters and armed forces insignia.  Mickey Mouse played his part by appearing on the insignia and posters urging national security and the purchase of war bonds.
