November 17th, 1928 a mouse was born who would become famous all around the world. Most of us grew up with this most well-known mouse, but indeed he was actually born in our grandparent’s lifetime. Mickey Mouse, one of Walt Disney’s earliest and yet most well-known creations has become a globally recognized symbol of children’s cartoons.
