“Minnie Mouse is a woman of the ages and her iconic status makes her a great addition to our Walk of Fame! Generations of fans of all ages have been looking forward to her seeing her bright new star.” ~ Ana Martinez, Producer of the WOF ceremonies.
Making her debut in the Disney classic, Steamboat Willie, Minnie soon became a favorite and has remained America’s sweetheart for many decades. She has appeared in 70+ films and has also become a fashion icon. Who doesn’t see polka dots and think immediately of Minnie Mouse?
