Two days ago, two friends of mine celebrated a birthday: my friend Zack and Mickey Mouse. Mickey is 88 this year. “Steamboat Willie,” Mickey’s first cartoon, premiered on November 18, 1928.
Walt Disney Studios is still making Mickey Mouse cartoons. The latest series of them started in 2013, and they are some of my family’s absolute favorite things to watch. For Mickey’s birthday, a new one was released. If you’ve seen the series, you know that when I call it the craziest one yet, I’m making a pretty bold statement. Look for cameo appearances from José Carioca (who also appeared in “O Futebol Clássico”) and, in his Mickey Mouse debut, Panchito Pistoles!
