Wow, can you believe it, Mickey Mouse is 88. That hilarious cartoon character that has made us laugh for generations is just 12 years shy of 100.

Premiering in 1928’s cartoon classic "Steamboat Willie," in which Mickey, in the role of Willie, drove a steamboat — stop it, it’s too funny — Mickey was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwreks. Mickey was based on an earlier cartoon called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Because Oswald was owned by Universal, Disney rebranded the character and started making his own cartoons. Oswald, I’m sure, was also very funny.

For years, Mickey was used as an everyman like character, who’s hilarious antics totured the lives of his friend Goofy, Donald, and dog Pluto, who cannot talk, while Goofy, also a dog, can talk. Hilarious.

Now, of course, Mickey is more of a logo than anything else, but his hilarious visage is among one of the most recognizable in the world, providing millions with joy and laughter because, wow, he is just too funny.

To that end, we say “Happy Birthday, Mickey.” You keep being you.

Disney has a rich history of animating folkstories and fairytales to massive success. Their cartoons fills stores, amusement parks, and my childhood toy box. Disney, however, was eventually replaced as the king of cartoons by Pixar, who shifted the trend from hand drawn movies to computer generated ones. Disney, who owns Pixar, has only recently recovered from that with the likes of Frozen.

But in the last few years, Disney realized it didn’t need to find new fairytales, when they could just remake their own movies with actual people and computer generated animals. Starting with 2014’s Maleficent and through 2016’s monster-hit The Jungle Book, Disney opened the Disney Vault and filled it with money.

Which brings us to Disney’s latest live-action remake: Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson as Belle and a star-studded voice cast, which includes Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen, and Kevin Klein. Like 2015’s Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast looks like the cartoon come to life, capturing many of the iconic images of 1991’s Oscar-winning movie and rebuilding them with CGI. It will surely be a massive moneymaker. Check out the trailer above.

Is your weird Uncle Herbert spending too much time at Disney recently?

It may be because a urologist at Michigan State University recently "discovered that riding a roller coaster helps patients pass kidney stones with nearly a 70 percent success rate."





As it turns out, not every roller coaster is equal for stone passage, "Big Thunder Mountain was the only one that worked. We tried Space Mountain and Aerosmith's Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and both failed."

Frozen came out in 2013 and kids everywhere are still singing "Let It Go" nonstop.  By now it's due for a sequel. Elsa finally came out of her shell by the end of the first movie, it makes sense for the next one to focus on her finding a prince. Now fans are saying, why not a princess? Using the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, Disney fans are campaigning for a diverse representation of love with their favorite ice queen.

So far, the only LGBTQ representation in Disney movies has been something subtle that people read into:

But will that change by popular demand?

Welp, if they haven't been ruined already, your favorite Disney movies are ruined. Say goodbye to your childhood memories. Now that this Vine account (coincidentally called Disney Ruined) has censored a few innocuous words in Disney movies you'll never be able to hear them the right way again.



Geez, Iago, tone it down, there are kids watching this movie.
