Oh! those ears!
Meiyang Chang

Meiyang Chang remembers drawing Mickey perfectly in drawing competitions with friends

“Three things about Mickey fascinated me the most: his ears (which are like Disney’s signature), his voice, and the fact that he could talk in Hindi! Of course I didn’t know it was dubbed then. Also, we used to have these drawing competitions with my friends, and somehow, I always drew Mickey perfectly!”

Childhood dreams

“Mickey Mouse means childhood dreams come true and the comfort of forever and fairy tales. I still lounge in Mickey Mouse pyjamas and wouldn’t part with my Mickey Mouse cushion for the world. I remember my first trip to Disneyland in Florida and dancing with Mickey!”

Sassy mickey

David Abraham’s associates Mickey Mouse with the musical Fantasia

Mad over mickey
Sanah Moidutty

Sanah Moidutty confesses her love for Mickey Mouse labels on notebook covers

“I used to draw Mickey’s face on the last page of my notebooks and I remember using Mickey labels on my notebook covers too! I visited Disneyland a couple of weeks back and it was so much fun to see tons of Mickey merchandise and people religiously wearing Mickey-ear hair bands!”

Coffee with mickey
