Mickey Mouse (and his high-pitched voice) is an icon and a central character to and for the Walt Disney Company since he first appeared in the now infamous short film “Steamboat Willie” made in 1928, which was one of the first to include sound (though he was first seen in the Plane-Crazy test screening). A humourous anthropomorphic cartoon mouse wearing white gloves, yellow shoes and red shorts, , he was created by Walt Disney and Ubbe Eert "Ub" Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928. He has made over 130 appearances and, in 1978, became the first cartoon character to achieve a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Officially Mickey Mouse’s pet, the animated cartoon character Pluto (or Pluto the Pup) appeared with his master 24 times before being granted a starring role in 1937. A mid-sized, short-haired cross-breed dog, with orangey hair and black ears, Pluto is not anthropomorphic (beyond facial expressions) and not dressed. He also does not speak (there are a few exceptions to this general rule) so generally relies on physical humour to express his personality. Created in 1930 by Walt Disney Productions, he appeared in 89 short films up to 1953.
Donald Duck has been in more films than any other Disney character (over 150), and is also the most published comic book character in the world (other than superheroes). An anthropomorphic white duck with yellowish bill, legs, and feet, he usually wears a blue sailor shirt and cap with a red bow tie, he was created in 1934 at Walt Disney Productions (first appearing in 1934 in The Wise Little Hen). Well-known for his much-imitated and barely-intelligible speech, along with his rather intemperate personality, he became a comic foil to Mickey Mouse and often appeared as part of a comic trio with Mickey and Goofy. His separate starring roles (since 1937) have additionally involved his love interest, Daisy Duck, and his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
During the 1930s, Goofy was part of a comedy trio with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck; from 1939, he had his own films which became popular in the 1940s and early 1950s. A tall, anthropomorphic cartoon dog with a Southern US accent, he was created in 1932 at Walt Disney Productions. He usually wears white gloves, an orange turtle neck jumper, black waistcoat-vest, blue trousers, brown shoes and a tall green hat (which has developed from the original crumpled fedora). A close friend of Mickey, he is generally shown as clumsy and somewhat dim, but is also, occasionally, intuitive and rather clever. First appearing as Dippy Dawg in 1932, he was re-imagined later that year in The Whoopee Party, where he had become a much younger character called Goofy.
