Animation, Disney, Universal Studios
Who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me? Why, Mickey Mouse of course. November 18 is Mickey Mouse Day, and what better day to give tribute to Mickey's older sibling: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Oswald was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, and starred in 27 animated cartoons. Disney experimented with Oswald, aiming to express character through how he moved and not just through how he looked. Unfortunately, Oswald's time with Walt drew to a close when Universal Studios claimed the character as their own. The newly formed Walt Disney Studio created Mickey Mouse in an effort to compete with Universal, and the rest is history.
