Mickey Mouse and Minnie
Mickey Mouse is a funny animal cartoon character and the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928. An anthropomorphic mouse who typically wears red shorts, large yellow shoes, and white gloves, Mickey has become one of the world's most recognizable characters.
Minnie Mouse is an animated, anthropomorphic mouse character created by Walt Disney
. She is the girlfriend of Mickey Mouse
, and first appeared alongside him in the short Plane Crazy
. She is sweet in nature, fun-loving and is widely recognized for her large collection of big bows of different colors that sit atop her head. Like many cartoon characters of the period (specifically female characters), Minnie was developed as a product of the time, serving as the object of Mickey's affection, the typical "damsel-in-distress", while also being intelligent and spunky. Though she was initially conceived to play the sole role of the love interest, Minnie has expanded into a more independent and dynamic character over the years, more specifically in her contemporary appearances.
