Happy birthday to Mickey Mouse, who turned 84 years old yesterday. The character debuted publicly in Steamboat Willie at the Colony Theater in New York on November 17, 1928. As historian Jim Korkis recently wrote, the Disney Company has increasingly distanced itself from celebrating Mickey’s birthday. The character lives on, however, fresh interpretations by other artists, like street artist Goser whose Mickey artwork posted above is currently adorning the streets of San Francisco.
