Walt Disney was born in December 1901 in Illinois, Chicago, he was the fourth son of family of farmers with Irish origin, he was working for a time delivering newspapers and his first animated movie was Alice in Wonderland and from there he would start on the world of animation and he created his famous animated mouse called initially Mortimer, and then he changed its name to Mickey Mouse, the most famous animated star of Disney´s empire.
No doubt,Mickey Mouse has been part of our childhood.
