Here’s the little rascal himself, albeit, standing and not swinging! He must be the Elvis Presley of iconic cartoon characters. As ubiquitous as Coca Cola or MacDonalds…Next  to him, Donald Duck, Pluto and Popeye pale into comparison. What is it about this big eared  little
mouse that is so compelling? Which characteristics does Micky personify that we identify with so strongly? Is it that he’s innocent and naughty at the same time… like most little children often  are? What quantifies "cuteness"? Did they have "cuteness" in the Middle Ages? Where does it come from? Psychology majors out there are invited to send in your thinking! What makes Mickey mighty??!!!
