Walt Disney came to California in the early 1920s. In 1928 he introduced Mickey Mouse in "Steamboat Willie," one of the first talking cartoons. Mickey became one of Disney's trademarks, and remains one of the most popular and enduring movie characters. Disney's entertainment empire expanded in the 1930s, when he marketed Mickey's image and name for a wide variety of products. This figure was especially made for our 20th Century exhibition, and is identical to the animated figures at Disney World in Florida and Tokyo Disneyland.
