Mickey Mouse was created in 1928 by Walt Disney (1901-1966) and animator Ub Iwerks (1901-1971). Disney based the character on his pet mouse, his original sketches were reworked by Iwerks to make them easier to animate. Walt Disney married Lillian Bounds (1899-1997) in 1925, and she is credited with having named Mickey Mouse.
