and think about it she has a pretty sweet life without being married to him. She owns her own home in a great neighborhood that even has a castle and she has millions of people that have taken photos with her over the years.

I think Minnie views Mickey more as a best friend, or a shopping partner. She knows what's going on;);). I also always questioned Mickey's true sexuality. The high pitched voice... the suggestive glances he gives to Donald...that whole Mousercise stage he went through in the 80's. It has always set my gadar off.

I would like to note that I have no problem whichever way he swings. I am all for same sex marriage, and in his case interspecies marriage, if Donald is so inclined.

P.S. Looked it up out of pure poopzengiggles, they ARE married but maybe she realized he was a slob so she had him have his own house?

According to Walt Disney, Mickey and Minnie Mouse have never been married on screen. But, in 1933, during an interview with Film Pictorial, Walt said, "In private life, Mickey is married to Minnie... What it really amounts to is that Minnie is, for screen purposes, his leading lady." Two years later in 1935, he told Louise Morgan in the News Chronicle "There's no marriage in the land of make-believe. Mickey and Minnie must live happily ever after." The discussion of Mickey and Minnie's wedding has been fueled by the 1932 film Mickey's Nightmare in which Mickey falls asleep in the armchair instead of meeting Minnie at the local dance. Mickey dreams of being married to Minnie and is surrounded by numerous little Mickey mice. Then in 1935, a cover for for the sheet music "The Wedding Of Mister Mickey Mouse" shows a picture of a beaming Mickey, dressing in a tux, leading Minnie, dressed in a veil, from the church to the happy cheering of Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow. This music was a Novelty Fox-trot with music by Franz Vienna and words by Edward Pola with special permission by Walt Disney.

Donald's sister lost custody of them, because she couldn't stay away from the duck sauce long enough to properly care for them. They now live a happy life with their uncle Donald, who, despite his lack of pants, is a much better influence on them than their bio-mom.

Minnie can do better! I am also concerned about how high his voice is for a mouse of his advanced age. Perhaps puberty skipped right over him. Either way, both have done will without actually reciting vows. To paraphrase...why buy the mouse, when the cheese is free.

Besides Mickey has had it made. A woman by his side for social events, always in a good mood (that happens often, right?), giggles constantly and it appears that she would do anything for "the Boss". Kind of like Hugh Hefner's set up. He'd be a fool to change that and it doesn't appear that he has any intention of doing anything about it. Is there anything worse than a non-committal mouse? Really?!?!

Sounds like Walt was a little anti-marriage. Like the magic wears off once man/mouse are married. Kind of ironic considering Disney is big on selling deluxe destination wedding & honeymoon packages. :sad2:

On our very first trip, I had met everyone but Daisy, so I chased her down to Toontown on our last day. We told her we were celebrating our anniversary and she pointed to my ring, then pointed to her finger and started "crying". I asked why Donald wouldn't give her a ring and she shruged and started to shake her finger at me and I said you are right, you need to explain to him the importance of jewelry in a relationship :lmao:.

I have been curious where Max came from as well and where his mom is.

According to the National Enquirer, Mickey has been seen keeping company with not only Daisy Duck but a number of females of different species. There is a report that several of these females even starred in films from Universal Studios that were less than appropriate. There are text messages between Mickey and these homewreakers that will come to light in next weeks edition... They were difficult to decipher because of Mickey's lack of typing skills. The real question, at this point, is whether Mickey really does have opposable thumbs or is he faking it. Only the Enquirer knows for sure

I like that now that the Toontown area is closing, it's rumored that Mickey and Minnie will move into an aparment above a shop on Main Street (or at least into the barn thing down there)!

I could just be making this up too.

But this seems like a natural next step in their relationship. They've finished the wooing, and have been steadily dating for some time, and in these tough financial times, it only makes sense to finally move in together!

:lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

Actually, in the Land of Rodents, "Mouse" is a common last name, just as "Wang" is so common in China, "Verma" in India, and "Smith" in the USA.

Donald Duck tried early in his career to go by one name, like Cher. However, just referring to himself as "The Duck" (with a marked emphasis on 'the') did not catch on with the public. By the time he thought of trying to refer to himself as "The Donald" it was too late, since a wife of Donald Trump had already appropriated that name for her husband. Foolishly, Donald Duck sued the Trumps over trademark infringement, but Donald was literally 'plucked' raw by The Donald and his henchmen (at that time, some rather scary crows with cigars in their mouths).

You know, it is probably something like how Rob and Laura Petre couldn't share the same bed on TV and how Lucy and Ricky couldn't use the word "pregnant" on tv--they didn't want people to think they were doing "it", ya know..."it" :wink: :wink:

Donald's sister, actual name Dumbella, sent them on a visit which got extended. You can see the letter in the movie when they first appeared. Also, in the short, Spirit of 1941 (Available in the Disney At War DVD set), where Donald is showing how easy it is to fill out an IRS Form 1040 not only does he list them as dependents but marks that they are adopted.

The plot thickens.

I was good friends with Mickey and Minnie. I was told during training that Walt wanted them to be perpetual sweethearts. I was told by another mouse friend when I worked down there that at one point they wrote and rehearsed a stage show in which Mickey and Minnie do indeed get married. Supposedly there were costumes and everything, but it was never followed through. (I do have questions about the source though. She claimed she was part of those rehearsals.) I had never heard of them being married off screen. Interesting.

Little interesting tidbit: Pluto was actually a gift to Mickey from Minnie (and had been Minnie's dog) which is why he will sometimes greet at her house in ToonTown.

I have a similar question and I'm sure there's an answer somewhere....

how does Goofy have a son? where did Max come from?

If you look, Max does look like the other citizens of Goofville. So that quashes the stupid rumors that go around. The line we are told in entertainment if we are ever asked this question: "We don't speak of it out of respect for Goofy." The implication is that Goofy is a widower. Supposedly the wife has been in one or two cartoons as an outline. You never really see her (or so I'm told.)

ETA: From wikipedia:

Goofy's wife has appeared - but always with her face unseen - in some earlier short cartoons depicting the character as a "family man", but his modern appearances portray Goofy as a single father.

I don't know where I heard it or read it, but this is what I know: They said if you ask children how old Mickey is they say around 5 or 6 so they couldn't have them get married because children would see them as adults and that wouldn't be fun. That's what I always tell people if they ask. It sounded good when I heard it.:love:
