The lifespan of a ordinary house mouse is less than 2 years, but Disney’s iconic rodent is still chugging along as Mickey Mouse turns 92. He was born Nov. 18, 1928, starring in the animated short “Steamboat Willie” by Walt Disney, one of the first cartoons with sound. That was Minnie Mouse’s birthday too.
