This funny animal cartoon character was originally co-created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. They also both co-created Mickey Mouse and Oswald The Lucky Rabbit. She first made her official appearance in the comic strip story called "The Gleam" and it was first published in 1942 by Merrill De Meris and Floyd Gottfredson. Minnie Mouse didn't start out with her present name of Minnie Mouse at first. The full name that she went by originally was Minerva Mouse and she came to be known mainly by the nickname of Minnie over the course of time.
To many people, Minnie was a far more acceptable alias than Minerva Mouse was, and that is what her name became eventually for all time. Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse were first drawn and brought to life by Ub Iwerks. Both Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse were first presented in an animated short film directed by Walt Disney in 1928. This very famous animated short film was called Steamboat Willie.
Minnie Mouse has been seen repeatedly as being the girlfriend of Mickey Mouse. She is also the best friend of Daisy Duck, who is either Donald Duck's wife or girlfriend, and also Clarebelle Cow. Minnie Mouse's parent's were Marcus Mouse and Margie Mouse. She also had a sister named Mandie who was also seen early on in the comic strips. Minnie Mouse's next appearance in Mickie's Follies in 1929 is something that proved to be a lot bigger for her animated cartoon character. This is because she got to perform her song called "Minnie's Yoo Hoo" and it was this song that would go on to become the theme song for all of Minnie and Mickey series for always.
