Nobody does it better than Disney…and nobody does Disney better than Party Fiesta Balloon Decor! And, honestly–who doesn’t harbor a secret passion for at least one famous Disney character?! Whether it’s the pretty Princesses or forever-young Peter Pan, these are the little charmers who will live in our hearts forever!
And even though you might think you know most of Disney’s superstars by heart, there just might be a few little facts here and there that you never knew before! Did you know:
…that Minnie Mouse’s real name is Minerva?! Both she and her adorable beau, Mickey, were first introduced to the world in the 1928 cartoon “Plane Crazy,” and it’s been love at first sight ever since! And did you know that it was Minnie who first introduced the world to her two precious pets: Figaro the cat and Pluto the dog?!
…that Mickey Mouse began life as Mortimer Mouse?! Creator Walt Disney’s wife, Lillian, nixed that uncartoony name, and, since mother always knows best, Mortimer became Mickey! The first words Mickey ever uttered onscreen were “Hot dogs!” in the 1929 cartoon “The Karnival Kid”! And did you know that Walt allegedly–and ironically!–was afraid of mice?!
…in “Peter Pan,” there was originally a scene in which Peter sings a song to the dying Tinker Bell to bring her back to life?! But, like so many classic movie moments, that scene hit the cutting-room floor during editing and, sadly, was never to be seen by film-goers!
…that Winnie the Pooh was actually the stuffed bear of the author’s son?! Alan Alexander Milne (otherwise known as A.A. Milne) had a sweet little boy named Christopher, whose childhood chum was his stuffed bear named Winnie the Pooh. In 1926, when Mr. Milne published his first book about the adventures of the chubby, honey-lovin’ bear who lived in the Hundred Acre Wood, his son’s stuffed companion was the star of the book, and little Christopher Milne was immortalized as the book’s hero, Christopher Robin!
…that Sleeping Beauty’s real name is Princess Aurora?! She is also known in the classic fairy tale as “Briar Rose”!
…that lovable Goofy was originally named Dippy Dawg?! A dog by any other name would still be sweet!
