Even though Mickey Mouse first appeared in a silent version of the Plane Crazy short in May of 1928, the cartoon character's *official* debut didn't take place until the release of Steamboat Willie on November 18 of that year. Thus, today is set aside as Mickey Mouse Day, to remember Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks' radical rodent.

Interestingly, Mickey's creation at Disney's Laugh-O-Gram Studio happened not far from the present day GoComics offices in Kansas City, Missouri. The Laugh-O-Gram building isn't much to look at these days (although many have endeavored to keep it from total collapse), but it's comforting to stand before it, nod, and know that somewhere in the vicinity is the nearly 90-year-old skeleton of the tame mouse that inspired Iwerks to draw a character Disney dug.

Get moving on this Mickey Mouse Day with these 11 comics, all the while thanking the late Lillian Disney for talking her husband out of calling him Mortimer.
