Thanks to Ubbe Ert Iwwerks and Walt Disney.
On November 18th 1928 “Steamboat-Willie” was presented to the public, the birth of Micky Mouse, after “Oswald the Lucky Rabbit got lost in a fight for copyrights with another Producer working with Ubbe and Walt.
An empire of Animation and comics and (sadly) financial market guiding power aroused after this Movie. Success of Illustrator and Animator Ubbe Ert Iwwerks and Producer Walt-Disney seemed unstoppable from then on.
Anyhow, Happy Birthday, Micky!!!
