Mickey Mouse may be a timeless icon but, it turns out, even famous mice age just like the rest of us.
One of Disney World's most recognizable mascots is turning 90 years old this year. On Nov. 18, 1928, Walt Disney and one his animators, Ub Iwerks, premiered a short film called "Steamboat Willie" at Universal Theater in New York City. And just like that, a star rodent was born.
This year, to honor Mickey's major milestone, several brands are celebrating with eclectic collections of limited-edition treats, trinkets and snacks that all honor Disney's classic cartoon.
Disney Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Collection, starting at $8, Sugarfina
Disney and Sugarfina have partnered up to create the Disney Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Sollection, a limited-edition spread of chocolate bars decorated with Mickey-shaped sprinkles and Mickey-themed gummies. Each sweet treat is available in specially-designed Mickey-themed keepsake boxes and there are big collectors' editions available, too.
Campbell's Tomato Soup, $2, Target
Earlier this month, Campbell’s released new soup cans featuring three different Mickey Mouse designs. The designs show Mickey drawn in the style of three different Disney eras, including the original look from "Steamboat Willie" in 1928, as well as the current version that's more recognizable to millennials. These Campbell's soup cans can be found on shelves at Target right now and will be available through October 2019.
