Mickey’s replacement is the iconic character of the Disney studios almost since their beginning. Indeed, for two years, Disney is known with the famous character of Oswald the rabbit whose large black ears and general aspect was already very close to that of Mickey. But in 1928, Walt Disney loses the rights as well as many of his animators and decides to create another character. So he created this famous anthropomorphic mouse with a cheerful character and a famous high voice. He appeared for the first time in the short film Steamboat Willie. He quickly became a success and was soon featured in new adventures in short films until he finally got his own feature film with the famous movie Fantasia.
