Mickey Mouse Cartoons is the creation of Walt Disney, a famous name in animation and cartoon movies world.  Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse cartoons in 1928. Walt Disney was known, among children and as well elders all round the world in all generation, as co-founder of Walt Disney production house.

Character of Mickey Mouse was inspired from a Disney’s pet mouse which he adapted in days when he worked in Kansas City Studios. First name of Mickey Mouse was Mortimer but later on it was flipped to Mickey Mouse as Mortimer does not suits its character in cartoon series. 

Animations and Voice

Sketching of Mickey Mouse Cartoon was redesign by Ub Iwerks in order to formulate animations trouble-free. The voice of character Mickey Mouse, in his early years, was given by Walt Disney himself from 1928 to 1947.

After Disney it was voiced by Jimmy MacDonald (1947-1977), after MacDonald it was voiced by Wayne Allwine (1977-2009) and Mickey Mouse’s present voice actor is Bret Iwan. In opinion of the workers of Disney employees, Mickey Mouse was designed by Ub but Walt Disney gave him soul.
