On November 18, 1928 the first ever Mickey Mouse film "Steamboat Willy" made its debut and the world famous Mickey Mouse was born. Today, Mickey is the mascot for the Walt Disney Company, named for Mickey's creator Walt Disney. Disney movies are beloved by children and adults alike across the world and hundreds of thousands of people flock to the Disney parks located in Orlando, Florida, Anaheim, California and other cities around the world. "Steamboat Willie" was the first animated sound cartoon created by Disney.

Since "Steamboat Willie," Mickey Mouse has gone on to star in countless feature films and cartoon shorts. Mickey has starred as one of the three musketeers, a sorcerer, as well as playing himself in a number of other movies and cartoons. Walt Disney created other characters to tag along with Mickey on his mischievous adventures. Mickey's best gal Minnie Mouse was created alongside her sweetheart in 1928's "Steamboat Willie." Mickey's friend the cranky Donald Duck first appeared in 1934 in "The Wisest Little Hen." Mickey's other pal Goofy, who needs no better description than his name, first tripped into our hearts in 1932.

In celebration of Mickey Mouse's 85th Birthday the Disney Channel will be airing special Mickey Mouse programming including the premiere of an all new Mickey animated short called "Potatoland." Tonight's new feature is part of a new collection of cartoons created by Paul Rudish and the Walt Disney Television Animation team. The new shorts are looking to ensure that the next generation of children who love going to Disney World and watching new programs don't forget the one important thing Walt Disney always said, "It all started with a mouse."
