Do you know when Mickey and Minnie Mouse celebrates their birthday?
November 18, 1928 is not only my wedding anniversary but it is considered Mickey and Minnie Mouse’s birthday as they made their movie debut in Steamboat Willie.
Steamboat Willie is released at the Colony Theatre in New York — this marks the release of the very first Mickey Mouse cartoon, and the first appearance by Minnie Mouse.
To celebrate this special occasion the Disney Channel will debut the first-ever extended episode of the Emmy Award-winning “Mickey Mouse” cartoon shorts as part of a themed day of programming in honor of Mickey Mouse’s birthday on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). The special seven-minute comedic cartoon titled “Potatoland” finds Mickey, Donald and Goofy on a road trip to Idaho to fulfill Goofy’s lifelong dream of visiting what he fondly remembers as Potatoland theme park.
“Mickey Mouse” cartoons will air every half hour beginning at 1:25 p.m. ET/PT, leading up to the premiere of “Potatoland.” Also debuting throughout the day will be special birthday messages to Mickey from the stars of “Austin & Ally, “Dog with a Blog,” “Jessie” and “Shake It Up.” The day-long birthday celebration kicks off with back-to-back episodes of Disney Junior’s Emmy-nominated series “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” (10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET/PT).
