Mickey Mouse

Party Like It’s 1953!

By Rebecca Cline, Director, Walt Disney Archives

Inspired by the Mickey Mouse compilation film Mickey’s Birthday Party, which was itself released to celebrate Mickey’s 25th anniversary in 1953, Walt Disney Productions released this fun pamphlet for families. This vintage publication, sponsored by Weather-Bird Shoes, is full of ideas, games, and directions for a birthday party, but is adaptable for any occasion. So, please enjoy this look back, or use it to celebrate your favorite character and his best buddies with your very own “Mickey Mouse Birthday Party.” So much fun… and so easy!
