Today is the Mouse's 80th birthday - and he doesn't look it, does he? As most of you will probably already know, Mickey was originally going to be called Mortimer Mouse, but it was Walt's wife, Lilian, who suggested Mickey. A very wise woman indeed, she realised that the name may not suit this little Mouse, and suggested Mickey. The rest, they say, is history.
Now, what kind of present do you get the Mouse who seemingly has everything? Well, I'm sure another little piece of cheese won't go wrong! So, let's all have a little bit of cheese and toast to our beloved Mickey Mouse - Joyeux Anniversaire, Mickey!
