Mickey Mouse visited the set of ABC News’ Good Morning America this morning to celebrate his birthday and premiere his new music video, “What We Got.” His appearance in New York City is the culmination of his worldwide birthday tour, where he surprised fans and friends in Los Angeles, Kyoto, Shanghai, Rome, Paris, Cusco and Rio de Janeiro while making the music video.
“What We Got” from Walt Disney Records is available at digital retail and streaming services. The video is also featured on the Mickey Mouse Facebook page, as well as on other Disney platforms such as the Disney Parks Blog, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club and Oh My Disney. Mickey fans are invited to join the celebration on social media using #HappyBirthdayMickey.
Also today, Disney Channel will air blocks of Mickey Mouse programming, including the premieres of two new cartoon series, and Disney Junior will debut the teaser trailer for the upcoming new series Mickey and the Roadster Racers. Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts will have special parade moments to mark the occasion.
Mickey’s birthday is celebrated in honor of the release of his first theatrical film, Steamboat Willie, on November 18, 1928, at the Colony Theatre in New York City. Since then, he has starred in more than 100 cartoons and can currently be seen on Disney Channel in the Emmy®-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon series.
