** Horace and Clarabelle started out as four-legged {{Talking Animal}}s and became {{Funny Animal}}s over the space of several cartoons.



* FurryConfusion: Horace and Clarabelle started out as four-legged {{Talking Animal}}s and became {{Funny Animal}}s over the space of several cartoons. Pluto is usually a relatively realistic dog, but did say a few words in a few early appearances.
** And then there's the ever-complicated issue of Goofy, which comes from determining what Goofy (anthropomorphic man-dog whose is treated like a human) is in relation to Pluto (non-anthropomorphic dog, who's treated like a dog), whom he is occasionally shown to interact with. While it's possible that anthropomorphic and non-anthropomorphic dogs may simply exist side by side in the Disneyverse, it still has odd connotations (imagine if some humans were kept as pets, and treated as such, alongside seemingly similar humans).

The ever-complicated issue of Goofy, which comes from determining what Goofy (anthropomorphic man-dog whose is treated like a human) is in relation to Pluto (non-anthropomorphic dog, who's treated like a dog), whom he is occasionally shown to interact with. While it's possible This is a consequence of how these characters were created. The ensemble cast we ended up with happened basically on accident, and internal logic wasn't something that anthropomorphic mattered in those old shorts. One short needed a dog, thus Pluto was made, another needed a heckler, so Goofy, then Dippy Dawg,was made. Both characters ended up becoming popular and non-anthropomorphic dogs may simply exist side by side in the Disneyverse, it still has odd connotations (imagine if some humans were kept as pets, and treated as such, alongside seemingly similar humans).became a part of Mickey's supporting cast

* NonstandardCharacterDesign. Donald, Daisy and the other ducks tend to stand out among the rest of the cast due to not having origins in the InkblotCartoonStyle. Their status as ducks is also emphasized, unlike everyone else's species.

* '''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse''': The first and most recognizable of the cast, often depicted as a good-natured, optimistic fellow - but also a determined and often feisty fighter with elements of both KidHero.

It was officially released on March 17, 1929. ''Steamboat Willie'' was the first widely distributed Mickey Mouse short as well as the first animated short to use synchronized sound.

** There are eight characters who had cartoons dedicated to them, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy (an anthropomorphic dog), Pluto (a dog), Chip 'n Dale (two chipmunks), Humphrey (a bear), and Figaro (a kitten). Both Goofy and Pluto the dogs starred in many more cartoons billed to them than Figaro the kitten, who only starred in three cartoons billed to him.
** Two of the Sensational Six members are dogs, whereas none of the members are cats.
** In "Plutopia" and any other Pluto cartoon with Milton the cat in it, Pluto is the main character and Milton is a supporting character. In Pluto's dream in "Plutopia," Milton is basically portrayed as his butler.

* CelibateHero: Walt himself once said when asked about it that Mickey does not have a sex life. However, ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse2013'' later contradicted this claim in the short "[[Recap/MickeyMouseS1E17ThirdWheel Third Wheel]]", where the ending implied that Mickey and Minnie [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar made love]] [[SexyDiscretionShot inside Goofy's stomach]].
