Coloring pages
Donald duck is currently some 4 decades old and seemingly the ravages of energy have not resulted in a mark on him. A few makeovers have left him somewhat rotund and to many somewhat misshapen. He has steadfastly refused to update his wardrobe and stuck with the clothing which may have seen him over the triumphs and disasters visited about the world that they inhabits over the decades of his life. But what happens - he doesn't look at all bad into it!

His main film work has dried up recently anf the husband hasn't had the offer a film in over 36 months. He suffered the ignominy of having his last one go straight to video but he's got were able to convey a brave face on things as wll as that face remains probably the most iconic images in the world today even beating Santa to the next record. His employers Disney threw a large a huge party for the Mickey's 75th birthday quite a while back so his has decided suppress on any further large extravaganzas for the time being.

Somewhat strangely Mickey's story started with a rabbit - Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to be precise. Back in the mists of energy Disney Brothers Studio was just part Universal Pictures' animation. Walt Disney created Oswald in 1927 his round, white face, big button nose and floppy black ears made him a moment hit and Universal approved a series of shorts. Walt disney world met the Universal executives in 1928 which has a view to negotiating a new contract. Oswald used to be riding high in the charts and Disney assumed that the deal on his terms will be simple. The studio had other ideas and informed him told him which it had hired away most of his employees whilst retaining the complete artistic rights to Oswald. The studio agreed to keep Disney on as long as he took an income cut which he naturally refused.

He and Ub Iwerks usually the one animator who stayed faithful to Disney, started on a session of brainstorming sessions burning the midnight oil to create a replacement for Oswald. Oswald's ears were shortened, some extra padding around the middle, and occasional and behold the rabbit tuned in a mouse originally as we all new named Mortimer. This name didn't last anf the husband became generally known as Mickey Mouse.

The 1st two Mickey shorts were not successful but then came Steamboat Willy a leading edge animation - the first one to feature synchronized music and sounds heading to the important screen. The show fist premiered in Nyc on Nov. 18, 1928 and it was immediately acclaimed a millionaire. Some Mickey Mouse shorts soon appeared including, Plane Crazy which actually predated Steamboat Willy. Mickey Mouse has been a national icon after the season and it was then that Disney world propelled the mouse to true superstar status by setting up a line of Mickey merchandise and not long after the Donald duck Club was formed.

In 1935 Mickey his first makeover by an animator called Fred Moore, earlier Mickey ended up drawn being a series of circles which was somewhat restrictive to his movement Moore, who later proceeded to animate Fantasia's Sorcerer's, innovatively gave him a pear-shaped body, pupils, white gloves as well as a shortened nose with express goal of producing cuter. Mickey also appeared in colour the first time that year.

By the time that 1937 came around Disney Studios was producing Mickey Mouse shorts at the rate of one per month. Disney himself was providing the mouse's distinctive high-pitched voice. Mickey went on to think the entire world in all it's various guises, becoming at various stages a football hero, a hunter, a tailor, or a symphony conductor. He rescued Pluto from your dog pound, crashed his car, fell behind on his rent, enlisted in the army together his house repossessed. By this time his life companion Minnie had became available and he or she was always being captured by dastardly villains always later being rescued by Mickey naturally, the epitome of the all American hero.

Inside the 1950s Mickey had his or her own theme park and newspaper comic strip, and that he had branched out on towards the new upcoming medium television. Sadly for Mickey Mouse, block buster Disney films like Bambi and Sleeping Beauty did start to make accolades and poor old Mickey did start to fade. There is an enforced retirement of Three decades between 1953 using the cartoon short The easy Things and the 1983 Christmas special Mickey's Christmas Carol.

Yet despite this all Mickey's ears are still the most famous cultural icons with the 20th and 21st centuries. He's posed for photographs with almost every U.S. President even though the sale of Donald duck merchandise have declined from other all time loaded with 1997 they still make-up an amazing 40% of the company's consumable revenue.
