  • A Little Bit of Walt:
    • Interview with Tony Thomas in January 1959
    • TT: (about Walt being the voice of Mickey Mouse in the early days) I was going to ask you if you could and you still can?
      WD: (in Mickey’s voice) Well, it’s just a falsetto. (in his own voice) And we were fooling around and trying to get a voice for a mouse and we didn’t know what a mouse would sound like, so I said, “It’s kind of like this”. And the guy said, “Well, why don’t you do it?” And I knew I’d always be on the payroll, so (laughing) I did it. — Walt Disney
