Ep. 31- A brief History of Mickey Mouse Balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (Mickey 90 Part 6)
Both Disney and Thanksgiving have a long history of parades! So it should come as no surprise that over the last 90 years or so, Disney has had some sort of presence in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! And just like with most things disney, their involvement in the epic parade all started with the mouse.
So, on this episode, in celebration of Thanksgiving and of course Mickey’s 90th birthday, I’m going to give you a brief history of Mickey Mouse balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Over that last 90 years, Mickey Mouse has stared in hundreds of shorts, films, stage shows, and more. In most of these, he has just been himself. But, a lot of people seem to forget that Mickey Mouse did try his hand at acting a few times too.
So on this episode, I’m gunna talk about 5 Mickey Mouse short films that have him portraying someone else.
On this episode, I talk about the voice actors who have played Mickey Mouse over the years. I also talk about my experience of meeting Bret Iwan at my local Comic Con!
This is part 4 of my special Mickey 90 series.
