In 1977, Allwine went to an open audition for the voice of Mickey Mouse and walked away with the part. He made his debut on "The New Mickey Mouse Club" (1977-1978), and has since provided Mickey's voice for Disney theme parks, movies, TV specials, records, and video games. In the role of Mickey, he has starred in films such as Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983), The Prince and the Pauper (1990), and Mickey, Donald, and Goofy: The Three Musketeers (2004), and the TV series "Mickey's Mouse Works" (1999-2000), "House of Mouse" (2001-2002), and "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" (2006-2008). "In time, you actually realize all of the characteristics that this character has in yourself," Allwine says of his prolific performances as Mickey. "I've got all his nave qualities, and all of his optimistic qualities." Allwine is married to Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse and many other popular characters. They head their own production company, Taylor-Allwine Associates, and share four children including three who think they sound like Mickey, too.



Now it's time to say goodbye to all our family...

It's the easiest voice in the world to do, so it's not like this matters to Disney. They've probably got a small army of back-ups already on payroll.

Meh, at first I thought it was the guy who had whistled in Steamboat Willie. Not that old or iconic then.

So Mickey and Minnie are getting a divorce.
The judge goes, "It says here you're divorcing your wife because she's a little crazy..."
and Mickey goes, "No, I said she was fucking Goofy!"

I know the guy's voice all too well. My daughter LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and watches it daily.
