Romantic, sweet and considerate Minnie tirelessly cares for her friends and pets. However, her kindness and gentle disposition can easily be replaced by anger if Minnie is faced with rudeness, narcissism or … disorder.
She bears the name “Minerva Mouse“, in honor of the ancient Roman goddess Minerva.
Minnie Mouse first appeared in the 1928 animated short Airplane Crazy. During the first year, the character was voiced by Walt Disney himself.
In the town square in Fairy Kingdom, there is a statue of Disney’s Roy Oliver sitting on a bench next to Minnie Mouse.
On January 22, 2018, Minnie Mouse was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with the wording “For her roles in cartoons, and for her outstanding influence on fashion since her debut appearance on the screens, in honor of the 90th anniversary.”
Since its inception, Minnie has reflected the influences of the youth culture of the time, in particular, the love of red. Regardless, she was supposed to appear in blue and green outfits. In Iverks’ early black and white cartoons, she has a large rectangular patch over her tail.
In 1940, Minnie’s outfit was revised: a large bow replaced the hat on her head, and even small bows appeared on her shoes. Her eyes also became clearer. Throughout the forties and fifties, its appearance was conservative. In everyday life, Minnie wears a red dress and a red bow with white polka dots and yellow shoes. Minnie has worn many swimwear, but the most common and elegant one is a red two-piece swimsuit with a skirt and a red bow with white polka dots.
Minnie is cool, fun and feminine. She is filled to the brim with love and affection, sweet to almost everyone she comes across, and can usually see beauty in most things. Minnie’s kindness is sometimes exploited by other characters, but Minnie appreciates her good-natured spirit as it often brings happiness to others, something she strives to accomplish regularly. she is empathetic enough in this regard, to the point that she will take other people’s problems and try to fix them herself, even if that someone may be her enemy.
Intelligent and sophisticated, Minnie often serves as the “voice of reason” among her friends, especially in the House of Mouse. Throughout the episode, Minnie repeatedly took responsibility for hectic situations, usually as a result of Mickey’s inability to deal with too much pressure despite being a co-owner of the club. This is so true that Minnie became especially offended when Mickey believed she couldn’t cope with such a mundane task as passing through the basement of the club (of course, a very large basement). Minnie is capable, and even serving as a “damsel in trouble” under the hands of the villainous Pete, Minnie would often take revenge if given the chance, thus helping Mickey in taking down the villain and saving the day in the Mickey Mouse episode Minnie sometimes got into trouble, which Mickey tried his best to save her – by the time he finds her, however, he learns that she was able to handle the situation on her own
However, Minnie is not without her weaknesses. She can be passive at times, which causes her to deal with an excessive amount of tomfoolery at the hands of her friends, she can also be extremely stubborn and does not take orders (or even advice) from anyone, always going by her own rules and doing that. what she thinks is best. While this is a positive trait that makes her independent and confident, it also makes her act reckless and intrusive, at least until she realizes what problems she caused.
Minnie is also outspoken when dealing with opponents. She is intolerant of any kind of rudeness or bullying, especially when bullying is associated with misogynistic and prejudiced points of view. And while she can be passive at times, Minnie also has her limits; she loses her temper at Daisy many times for her diva and Mickey attitude for his occasional selfishness. Her aggression is also regularly shown when Mortimer Mouse is involved as she will happily make a fool out of a rodent for his constant pursuit
In fact, Minnie is a lover of life, nature, her friends and, most importantly, Mickey, who serves not only as her boyfriend, but also her best friend. Because she believes in “true love” commonly found in fairy tales, Minnie is quite dreamy and quirky (as opposed to her more serious side), for which she is completely irreconcilable.
In 1928, Walt Disney and Ab Iwerks created Mickey Mouse as a replacement for Oswald the Rabbit. But Mickey couldn’t be alone. Among Oswald’s few character traits was his desire for love. Thus, to emulate his predecessor in flirting, Mickey Mouse needed a sweetheart. She was Minnie Mouse.
Minnie Mouse first appeared in the cartoon “Airplane Crazy”. In the story, Mickey Mouse invited Minnie to join his first flight on an airplane. She accepted the invitation, but refused Mickey when he offered her a kiss in the middle of the flight. This cartoon showed Minnie Mouse to be quite resistant to the love shown by her lovers.
The next cartoon, which featured Mickey and Minnie, was “The Gallopin ‘Gaucho” (Gallop on an ostrich). Minnie is at the Cantina Argentina bar and restaurant located in the Pampas of Argentina. She performs tango for Mickey, who plays the gaucho, and Pete, who is outlawed. Both flirt with her, but Pete kidnaps her. Mickey Mouse frees her from the villain. All three characters were portrayed as if they had met in the cartoon for the first time.
Steamboat Willie became the third cartoon with Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Pete was the captain of the steamer, Mickey was the crew, and Minnie was the passenger. Two anthropomorphic mice became the first stars of sound cartoons. Most of the cartoon they played music with a melody reminiscent of “Turkey in the Straw”.
The next cartoon, in which Minnie participated, was “Mickey’s Foolies” (Mickey’s Foolishness). In the cartoon, the melody “Minnie’s Yoo Hoo” was first shown. The song later became the theme song for many cartoons featuring Mickey Mouse.
Mickey Mouse’s last appearance on the screen in 1929 was associated with the cartoon “Wild Waves” (Stormy waves). The strong waves dragged Minnie out to sea. She panicked and seemed to start drowning. Mickey saved her, but Minnie hadn’t recovered from her shock yet. Mickey Mouse, trying to cheer her up, began humming the tune of the sea ballad “Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep”. The story ends when Minnie Mouse is in good spirits. This was the second, but not the last cartoon, in which Minnie was in danger and was rescued by Mickey Mouse.
In the second half of the 1930s, Minnie began to appear on the screen less often. This is due to the growing popularity of Mickey’s new friends – Goofy and Donald Duck – who partially replaced Minnie Mouse. Her appearances in the Mickey Mouse cartoons have diminished, but she nonetheless played several major roles in Pluto and Figaro the kitten cartoons.
Minnie Mouse’s original comeback came in 1983, when she played the role of Emily Cratchit in Mickey’s A Christmas Carol. She also played a small cameo in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
In 2004, the cartoon The Three Musketeers: Mickey, Donald, Goofy was released, in which Minnie Mouse took part. She played the princess of France, whose lover was the musketeer, Mickey Mouse. Interestingly, in this cartoon Minnie is presented with bangs that are not found in later Disney films.
Minnie currently appears in every episode of The Mickey Mouse Club.
