Western Animation / Minnie Mouse

Her full name, Minerva Mouse, is given in the comic strip story "The Gleam" by Merrill De Maris and Floyd Gottfredson and published from January 19 to May 2, 1942.

In many appearances, Minnie was presented as Mickey Mouse's Love Interest, a close friend to Daisy Duck, and/or a friend to Clarabelle Cow.

Tropes That Apply to Minnie:

  • Satellite Character: Really doesn't have much of a personality outside of her interactions with Mickey and co. Some later projects such as House of Mouse have tried to subvert this and make her an individual character, usually by making her a foil for Daisy.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Daisy is part of The Sensational Six, but not of The Fabulous Five. Minnie is present in either case, being the sole female in the latter.
  • True Blue Femininity: It was not uncommon to see her wearing blue in older appearances. In the last 30 years she's began leaning toward pink and red though.
  • Species Surname: She is a mouse whose surname is "Mouse".
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Design wise, she's basically Mickey with eyelashes, a bow and a dress.
  • Women Are Wiser: Several cartoons depict her as slightly more level headed and responsible than Mickey.
