Making his debut on November 18, 1928, we commemorate the birth of that ever lovable mouse that was once a rabbit called Oswald. To get to the beginning of the story, we have to go back to 1927 when Walt Disney first sketched a floppy eared bunny while under contract to Universal Studios. The events that unraveled brought us Mickey Mouse.
From a rabbit named Oswald to a mouse named Mortimer, eventually, the squeaky-voiced rodent was dubbed Mickey. He flopped in two animated short films without any success. Then on November 18, 1928, Mickeys star was born. The first animation synchronized to music and sound effects, Steamboat Willie premiered in New York.
Within a year, a Mickey Mouse Club popped up in Salem, Oregon. This particular club offered admission as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army with a donation of either a potato or a small toy and a penny.

There is a way to revert it back to the grand company Disney envisioned, and that requires a solid conservative who is willing to promote American values as well as the family, and have strict standards for any child actors to undergo and purge any racist/cultural Marxist ideologies in the industry to take control of it, hopefully when Iger leaves, either of his own free will or by force.
Agree 100% but the odds of that happening are slim to none...and Slim just rode out of town.
Maybe, maybe not. Rumor has it that Iger has been very indecisive in regards to who will take over, and we’ve got at most two years for him to decide to run for office (since 2019 is when the Democrat primaries/runoffs are scheduled to be held for the 2020 election cycle). It would require a whole lot of luck, true, but it’s the best we’ve got right now.
