You can't be delivered it on a platter. You've got to earn it. So in my version, the Fairy Godmother said, 'It's okay till midnight but from then on it's up to you.

Disney felt the characters in Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan were too cold, while Cinderella contained elements similar to Snow White, and greenlit the project.

Danish editor Egmont Publishing used the character again in seven stories published between andreimagining some aspects while refraining from declaring the old and the new character the same one. This new incarnation looks younger and is identified as Mickey's sister. She is now named Felicity, a name that was kept in the American localization of these Danish stories. In Egmont production notes her husband is named Frank Fieldmouse, though the character has never appeared in a story.
Since then they have appeared in lots of comic strips and comic book stories starring Mickey Mouse and Pluto.
Morty and Ferdy were first shown as wearing shirts, but no pants or underpants. Pants were later added to their wardrobe. Ferdie disappeared from the Mickey Mouse comic strip in because Gottfredson thought the nephews were too much alike. He had plans to bring Ferdie back later as a bespectacled, intellectual, bookworm mouse with an Eton hat and coat with the explanation that he had been away at school. However, Gottfredson never got around to bringing Ferdie back and Morty remained in the strip alone.
Morty was occasionally depicted with his best friend named Alvin and a sweetheart named Millie. Both were anthropomorphic dogs. Ferdie never vanished from comic book stories, however. In recent years, some of Morty and Ferdie's comic book appearances have portrayed them as very talented football players on the team Riverside Rovers.

The following year the nephews appear again in Gulliver Mickey. The following film, Mickey's Steam Rolleris the first to show Mickey with only two nephews, who can be presumed to be Morty and Ferdie, although they are unnamed in the film itself. This was two years after the twins debuted in the comic strip.
Morty and Ferdie also make a cameo towards the end of 's Boat Builders and appear again in 's Mickey's Christmas Carol in speaking roles, albeit at different ages as one of the twins took on the role of Tiny Tim. While referred to as blonde in the story itself, Madeline has also been colored with straight yellow fur in some printings of the story.
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Main article: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is an anthropomorphic black rabbit who is described as Mickey's older half brother in the video game Epic Mickey.
This is a reference to the fact that Oswald was Walt Disney's primary cartoon star before the creation of Mickey Mouse.
Disney's loss of the rights to Oswald in led to Mickey's creation. The game is actually unclear on whether Mickey and Oswald are actually brothers; Yen Sid's closing narration merely states that the wizard hopes the two heroes will come to think of each other as brothers.
He first appears as a farmer in the Mickey Mouse comic strip story line "Mr. Slicker and the Egg Robbers," first published between September 22 and December 26, He's also appeared in some English stories from s Mickey Mouse Annuals. Minnie has had an inconsistent list of nieces.
In Europe and Brazilmost often a single niece is depicted, consistently named Melodia Melody. However, in at least one other Italian or Brazilian tale Minnie did have another niece named Zizi whether this was the name of Melody's twin or just another name for Melody is unknown. In AmericaMinnie's twin nieces have appeared under two names: Millie and Melody and Pammy and Tammy. Although the writer of these comics is unknown, they were both drawn by Paul Murrywho rarely worked with characters that sported the same names even if they ostensibly were the same characters.
These teenage nieces have yet to appear in comics printed in the USA. It is reported that another name is attributed in American comics giving Minnie's single niece the name of Molly. The only possible film appearance of any niece is in 's " Mickey's Christmas Carol ," where Mickey Mouse, as Bob Cratchithas a daughter.

Despite his occupation, Casey is an impatient man of only average intelligence. Thus, while sometimes a successful detective, he is prone to bungling cases as well. Eega Beeva Eega Beeva, also known by his proper name Pittisborum Psercy Pystachi Pseter Psersimmon Plummer-Push, is a human from the future, sometimes also referred to as an alien and first appeared on September 26, in the Mickey Mouse comic strip storyline titled The Man of Tomorrow.
Since then he and Mickey have been portrayed as good friends in subsequent stories. Eega Beeva wears short black trousers, which store a large number of useful items, often helping Mickey Mouse and Eega in difficult situations. Another trademark attribute of the character is his unique speech, adding a "p" at the beginning of every word that starts with a consonant.
In European stories he has been shown to prefer sleeping on top of narrow poles, such as on top of Mickey Mouse 's bed post.
He eats mothballs for food and is severely allergic to cash ; these have sometimes been used as a plot device. He was a recurring character in the American newspaper Disney comic strips for nearly three years until Julybut then Eega Beeva's notable presence abruptly ended for unknown reasons.
The character was adapted to comics of Italian artists in the s and has since then appeared in various European Disney comic book stories, especially in Italy. In his debut story, Mickey Mouse and his friend Goofy seek shelter from a thunderstorm and get lost in a cave. There, Mickey suddenly encounters an unusual humanoid who only says "Eega" at first.
When Mickey and Goofy find the exit of the cave, Mickey invites the being to stay at his house, to which he gives the name "Eega Beeva", while the character himself states that his name is "Pittisborum Psercy Pystachi Pseter Psersimmon Plummer-Push. In a series of events, two scientists conclude that Eega Beeva is a human from years in the future. At the end of the storyline, Eega saves Goofy from a skiing accident, causing them to become friends.
In the first two strips of the storyline Mousepotamia in Julyit is explained that Eega is homesick. Therefore, he returns to the cave where Mickey found him. Afterwards, he did not appear again in the American newspaper comic strips for unknown reasons.
It is titled L'inferno di Topolino lit. The character was newly discovered and defined by Italian comics artist and writer Romano Scarpa with the comic Topolino e la nave del microcosmo lit. Rather than his whimsical attributes, this story focuses on the futuristic and fantastic aspects of Eega Beeva and his environment, as do later stories. He wears short black trousers.
His name is a pun on the idiom " eager beaver ". All humans would have Eega-like proportions. New Eega comics produced by Egmonton the other hand, often refer to his hometown as being the Mouseton of —just as in Gottfredson's original stories. He is, as his name implies, a kind of "humanized atom" created by Doctor Einmug. Atomo looks a lot like Eega Beeva in his behavior, but they never met each other. One is the uncle of Minnie Mouse ; another is an unrelated mouse who was Mickey's rival for Minnie's affections.
Mickey Mouse himself was originally going to be named Mortimer. Lillian DisneyWalt's wife, suggested the name Mickey instead. He was Minnie Mouse 's ranch-owning cattleman uncle. He first appeared in the serial Mickey Mouse in Death Valley After that, he appeared or was referenced in many other Mickey Mouse comic strip adventures in the s.
In the cartoon short Mickey's Rivalthe second Mortimer was introduced as Mickey's competitor for Minnie's affections.
In the comics, this Mortimer was briefly renamed Montmorency Rodent pronounced "Ro-Dawn"in an attempt to differentiate him from the pre-existing uncle, but the new name did not stick. Mickey's rival was once again called Mortimer in later comics — and in the animated series Mickey Mouse Works and House of Mousewhere he utilized the catchphrase"Ha-cha-cha! Mortimer Mouse also appeared in a non-speaking cameo in the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episode Minnie's Birthday, sitting beneath a tree, playing a guitar.
He later appeared in the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episode "Super Adventure" as a villain where he intends to shrink the clubhouse. He is a large man who wears a big white beard and laboratory coat. Doctor Einmug specializes in atomic physics and speaks in a German-like accent which was probably a nod towards Albert Einstein" mug " also being a pun on " stein ".

His introductory story, Island in the Sky, raises many issues about the benefits but also the dangers of atomic physics just a few years before the first atom bombs were developed. After that, Einmug did not re-appear in American comics for almost 50 years, but he was used in Italian ones, starting some 12 years later in when he appeared in Romano Scarpa 's Topolino e la dimensione Delta "Mickey Mouse and the Delta Dimension".MEETING DISNEY CHARACTERS & PRINCESSES at Disneyland
In this story he had discovered the means to travel to what he called the Delta Dimension, which was effectively an infinite void of nothing, just space. Setting his laboratory up in the Delta Dimension, Einmug pursued his work and discovered that atoms were in fact living beings. He thus increased the size of one of them to that of a small boy and named him Atomo Bleep-Bleep Italian: Atomo was highly intelligent and had many supernatural abilities, including turning metal into chocolate  or estimating with absolute precision when an object was created.
Einmug himself has also appeared in numerous European Mickey Mouse comics. He is often shown as less secretive and paranoid than in his original appearance, though his discoveries are still coveted by the likes of Pete and the Phantom Blot. Einmug reappeared in American comics in in the story A Snatch in Time!
Ellsworth Ellsworth started out as Goofy 's pet mynah bird but in later stories he became an independent anthropomorphic animal. His full name being Ellsworth Bheezer occasionally misspelled Bhezer—"beezer" is old English slang for a big nose or beak. He was created for the Mickey Mouse Sunday pages, but has been used in longer comics as well, especially the ones produced in Italy, France and Brazil.
Ellsworth usually wears a red-orange shirt and a green cap or beret. Reflecting a trait of mynah birds who can imitate human speech, he is extremely vain and self-centered, which was originally the spotlight and center of jokes in his stories. On the other hand, Ellsworth is also a bonafide genius with awesome tech and scientific knowledge—the "Y" on his shirt in earlier stories stands for "Yarvard" a parody of Harvardhis alma mater.
Despite being more or less entirely humanized in more recent stories, Ellsworth retains his ability to fly, a unique trait among the central Disney funny animal cast.
In manner, Ellsworth is often sarcastic and condescending, typically addressing others with statements like "Let's not [do X], shall we? But when push comes to shove, he's genuinely fond of and defensive of his pals Goofy and Mickey. Ellroy Ellroy original Italian name Bruto Gancetto is Ellsworth's somewhat smaller adoptive son and Mickey Mouse's sidekick in numerous Italian stories. Created by Romano Scarpa inEllroy first appeared in American comic books in Sylvester Shyster Sylvester Shyster is a crooked lawyer and evil criminal mastermind who generally teams up with Peg-Leg Pete.
The character has been described by some as a weasel or a rat the latter being Gottfredson's own interpretationbut his ears suggest that he is rather an anthropomorphic canine. He first appeared in the comic strip adventure " Mickey Mouse in Death Valley ", the first real Mickey Mouse continuity, which was partially written by Walt Disney and drawn by Win Smith and other artists, before being taken over by Floyd Gottfredson plot and art.
In this story, Sylvester Shyster was a crooked lawyer who attempted, with the help of his henchman Pete, to deprive Minnie Mouse of her inheritance.
Shyster and Pete have been causing trouble for Mickey and his friends since then. Shyster is generally depicted as the duo's brain, with Pete acting as the brawn. He is probably the only person Pete will listen to without rebellion. After Shyster's first appearance, Gottfredson made no further references to his profession as a lawyer, apart from his name.
Later creators occasionally referenced Shyster's role as a lawyer, with one story "Trial and Error," forcing Shyster to defend Mickey himself in an overseas courtroom. Shyster disappeared for a time afterbut made comebacks inand again in various s Italian-created stories. He is an English private eye operating in 19th century London and employing Mickey Mouse as an assistant.
The character was created by Carl Fallberg plot and Al Hubbard art for the Disney Studio Program and intended solely for foreign publication. The first story in the series is "Mickey and the Sleuth: The Case of the Wax Dummy". Given their historical setting, the "Mickey and the Sleuth" stories stand apart from other Mickey Mouse continuities. It is never explained if the "Mickey Mouse" working with the Sleuth is an ancestor of the present-day Mickey or if those stories are to be included in a totally different continuity.
Apart from Mickey, no other prominent Disney characters are featured in the stories. The Sleuth is a good-natured gentleman; wearing a deerstalker hatsmoking a pipe and using a magnifying glasshe is an obvious parody of Sherlock HolmesMickey basically playing the part of Dr. Like his literary counterpart, he also plays the violin albeit horribly. Unlike Sherlock Holmes, he is totally hopeless as a detective, being sometimes unable to figure out crimes that happen right in front of his eyes.
Nevertheless, he always manages to solve his cases — hence ensuring a reputation as a great detective — either by sheer luck, or thanks to his foes' own incompetence, or simply because Mickey Mouse does all the actual detective work for him.
The Sleuth's constant foes are Professor Nefarious a parody of Professor Moriartya London-based "teacher of crime" and his three henchmen-pupils Fliplip, Sidney and Armadillo. Their hideout is a rundown townhouse with the words "University of Criminal Sciences" written on its front door.
While Nefarious is reasonably smart although his own megalomania sometimes hinders his planshis three accomplices are thoroughly inept comical villains. Mickey and the Sleuth imprison the gang at the end of each story, although Nefarious himself generally manages to escape. Apart from Mickey no one seems to be aware of the Sleuth's utter incompetence. Nefarious considers the Sleuth — not Mickey — as his greatest enemy.
Why Mickey would keep being the assistant of such an inept detective is never explained. Mickey and the Sleuth stories were produced up until the late s. Two Mouseketeer cast members — Lisa Whelchel as the Sleuth's niece Lisa, and Scott Craig as Fliplip — performed alongside the two lead rivals, utilizing puppetry and ventriloquism skills.
The setting of the story was England, near the White Cliffs of Dover. He first appeared in Bobo the Elephant as the abusive owner of an elephant which Mickey later forced Squinch to sell him.
Squinch has gone on to appear in additional Disney stories up to the present day, though generally only one story every couple of years—while a recognized character, Squinch seems never to have been one of the most popular villains. Vulter is an anthropomorphic aperesembling a gorilla. He is a megalomaniacal pirate captain and mad scientistsomewhat modeled after Jules Verne 's Captain Nemo character.
Using a futuristic submarine and a small army of henchmen, he plagues the seas by stealing various ships which he aims to use for his plans of world conquest.
