The world's most beloved mouse is reaching a milestone, turning 90 years old.

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse made his debut on November 18, 1928 when "Steamboat Willie" premiered in New York.

Fun fact, before Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse, he made Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

But in a dispute with his business partner at Universal, Disney lost the rights to the character Oswald.

The loss of his first character inspired the birth of the mouse.

Since then, the character has been the mascot of Disney ever since.

Mickey was the first cartoon character with a star on the Hollywood walk of fame.

That honor came in 1978 for Mickey's 50th birthday.
