* TheOtherDarrin: Mickey was voiced by Creator/WaltDisney from his debut through ''FunAndFancyFree'', after which James [=MacDonald=] took the reins. During Walt's run as Mickey's voice, Clarence Nash (the voice of Donald) substituted for Mickey's voice for the 1934 short ''The Dognapper'' (and also in a few 1950s commercials by Tom Oreb). Wayne Allwine took over the role in 1977 and would voice him until his death in 2009. Since then, Mickey has been (and currently is) voiced by Bret Iwan.
