Mickey Mouse is one of the most famous cartoon characters in the world. Going on to appear in over 120 cartoons, Mickey became the first animated character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His endearing personality has captured the imagination of cultures and generations around the world.
Minnie Mouse is the stylish, lifelong sweetheart of Mickey Mouse. Wearing her iconic red polka dot dress, Minnie’s personality has delighted generations of fans across all cultures. With a history spanning over 85 years, Minnie shines as a star in her own right.
Donald Fauntleroy Duck is the most prolific of all the Disney characters in terms of his number of appearances, total screen time, and comic book career. An anthropomorphic white duck, Donald wears a sailor suit with a bow tie, and is known for his short temper. In 2004, Donald was recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Daisy Duck, like Donald Duck, Daisy is an anthropomorphic white duck; however, she is more feminine with long eyelashes and ruffled tail feathers. She is often seen wearing a blouse with puffed short sleeves, a matching hair bow, and heeled shoes. She also shows a strong affinity towards Donald Duck and is very devoted to him.
Goofy is a tall, anthropomorphic dog and typically wears a turtle neck, waistcoat, white gloves, and a tall hat originally designed as a rumpled fedora. A close friend of Mickey Mouse, Goofy is one of Disney’s most popular characters. Characterized as being extremely clumsy, he at times shows surprising intuition and knowledge, albeit in his own unique and eccentric way. Having featured in television shows and comic books, Goofy was given his own series of shorts during the 1940’s, two of which were nominated for ACADEMY AWARDS ®.
Pluto is an iconic cartoon character whose nature and personality as a tracker dog in this early film was quite different to the friendly pup we know today. His cheerful and adventurous temperament has endeared him to many. As he does not speak, Pluto’s performance relies on physical humor. This has made him a pioneering figure in character animation, by expressing personality through movement, facial expressions and vocalization. Cast in his own television series in 1937, Pluto went on to appear in 48 cartoons over the following decades.
