Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse looks 87 years young

Happy birthday to you. Cha cha cha. Happy birthday to you. Cha cha cha. Happy birthday dear Mickey Mouse. Happy birthday to you.

You may now spank Mickey Mouse 87 times and pinch him once.

He was born Nov. 18, 1928, starring in the animated short "Steamboat Willie" by Walt Disney, one of the first cartoons with sound. That was Minnie Mouse's birthday too.

He's got one Oscar, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and probably about 13 percent of every family with children's annual budget one way or the other.

He's just a little bit older than Ed Asner, who turned 86 on Sunday, but still younger than Judge Wapner from The People's Court, who turned 96 on Sunday. (See which other celebrities are 85 and older in our gallery.)

Still, Mickey will most likely live beyond humans' existence on Earth, so what more could he possibly need.
