Mickey Mouse: The Evolution, the Legend, the Phenomenon! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the authors who brought you Disneyana and The Mickey Mouse Watch comes a fascinating, fun-filled look at an international icon. Since his film debut in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928, Mickey Mouse's star has continued to rise, reaching his modern status as a worldwide cultural icon. His mysterious impish mouse-magic and happy-go-lucky charm promise to carry us with jubilance into the 21st century. Mickey Mouse: The Evolution, The Legend, the Phenomenon takes a concentrated look at this still-mischievous, but wholly likable adventure — all in all, a mature cartoon figure.

Book News Annotation:

Heide and Gilman, who have written many books on American popular culture, take a look at Mickey Mouse the movie star, comic strip character, and international hero. Beginning with his debut in 1928, they trace the rise to fame of this likeable, adventurous icon and try to understand him as a personality. The book contains 300-plus color and b&w images, some never before published. Oversize: 9.25x11<">.
