MICKEY’S GANG

YOU (South Africa) - - YOU NEWS -

MIN­NIE first ap­pears in Plane Crazy in 1928 when Mickey in­vites her for a ride in his plane. When he tries to kiss her she para­chutes to the ground, set­ting the scene for decades of woo­ing.

PLUTO evolved from an un­named dog, in 1930’s The Chain Gang, to Pluto the Pup in The Moose Hunt a year later. He’s the only one of the orig­i­nal Dis­ney char­ac­ters with­out hu­man traits.

Mickey’s clumsy and dim-wit­ted bestie, GOOFY, made his de­but in Mickey’s Re­vue in 1932 – orig­i­nally as Dippy Dawg. He was given a makeover later that year in The Whoopee Party.

DON­ALD DUCK has been around since 1934 when he fea­tured in Wise Lit­tle Hen. Don­ald and Mickey are the orig­i­nal fren­e­mies.

DAISY DUCK was cre­ated in 1940 to be Don­ald’s love in­ter­est in Mr Duck Steps Out. Un­like her sassy bestie, Min­nie, Daisy has al­ways been de­voted to her beau.
