Mickey and Minnie Mouse are two of the most popular cartoon characters of all time. In fact, Disney World and Disneyland exist solely because “It was all started by a mouse”. However, very few people realized that Mickey and Minnie were actually married. Well, that doesn’t matter anymore with the breaking news that Mickey and Minnie Mouse are officially getting divorced.
Mickey and Minnie starred in Steamboat Willie back in 1928. This was one of the first-ever cartoons with sound and was the start of 95 amazing years together as Mouse and Wife. It’s a little-known fact that Minnie and Mickey were married in their “private life”. There was never an onscreen wedding for the two, but Walt Disney admitted in 1933 that the mice were in fact married. Well, now the two most famous cartoon characters are going through a tough divorce.
Mickey and Minnie Divorce After 95 Years
It’s hard to fathom that Disney would support a divorce between Mickey and Minnie Mouse. However, the reason behind it makes a lot of sense and is rather sad. This of course isn’t the only sad news about Mickey Mouse. In fact, just a few months ago we reported here that Mickey would no longer be the official Disney mascot. This came as a shock to the world, especially with Figment replacing him. However, when you look at the legal situation, it makes sense.
So why are Mickey and Minnie getting divorced? This comes down to things getting stale between the couple. Every Mickey and Minnie adventure is the same. They are planning something extravagant, then there is a disruption in the middle of it. Eventually, they overcome the obstacles and it ends happily ever after. According to an internal source, it’s a storyline that has been played up too many times.
Our source confirmed that Mickey and Minnie are going to be switching things up. In fact, Mickey has found a love interest in Daisy Duck. Meanwhile, it’s been rumored that Donald and Minnie are seeing each other as well. This opens the door to far more storylines for Disney. Now you will get to see love stories between Mickey and Daisy as well as Donald and Minnie. Many have already nicknamed the two couples “Maisy” and “Donnie”.
The Reaction to The Big Divorce
As you might imagine, the divorce of Mickey and Minnie Mouse is drawing a lot of attention. In fact, it’s one of the most talked-about stories in 2023. The announcement of Mickey and Minnie’s divorce sent shockwaves through the Disney community. Social media platforms erupted with a flurry of emotions, from heartbreak to disbelief. Fans, who grew up witnessing the iconic couple’s adventures, struggle with the idea that even in the world of perpetual happiness, relationships could take unexpected turns.
Meanwhile, others are critical of Disney for allowing this to happen. While they understand the business case and the new opportunities with “Maisy” and “Donnie”, they are frustrated. They don’t believe that a happy marriage of 95 years should be broken up just for a few new adventures. They feel this is a rather immoral decision and that there is no place for this in the world of Disney.
On the other hand, there are some proponents of the Mickey and Minnie divorce. They cite the many issues between the couple over the years. They point out how many times Mickey did Minnie wrong and the fact that they should have divorced years ago. In fact, they are disappointed in Disney for promoting such a flawed marriage for so long and that it actually has many negative ramifications on society.
