(WJBF) – Mickey Mouse turned 89 on Saturday.

His first cartoon, “Steamboat Willie”, premiered in New York on November 18th, 1928.

Mickey’s official birthday was actually changed a number of times over the years, but according to the Walt Disney family museum, it was settled in 1978 that the star was born on his first big premiere.

Of course, that makes November 18th Minnie Mouse’s birthday as well.
