84 years ago today, “Steamboat Willie” was released, making a star out of Mickey Mouse. And 4 years ago, Disney released these Disney Dollars to celebrate Mickey’s 80th Anniversary.
The one dollar bill features the “pie-eyed” Mickey of the early 1930’s:
1928-2008, Mickey Mouse, Eightieth Anniversary
The back of each bill features a nice illustration of Mickey’s evolution through his 80 years
The five features Mickey as the Mickey Mouse Club Bandleader, from the mid 1950’s
The ten features the modern, computer generated Mickey Mouse
Happy 84th, Mickey Mouse!
