Years after his first film debut in Steamboat Willie, Mickey Mouse continued to fill theater seats all over the world. Prior to the release of Disney's animated film,"William Tell", STAGE MAGAZINE correspondent Katherine Best was rightfully in awe over the world-wide popularity the rodent was enjoying and at the time this essay appeared in print, he had already been seen in over sixty cartoons:

He and his less articulate imitators have brought Japanese and Chinese, Abyssian and Italian, Norse and Nazi together on what is, perhaps, their only common ground: laughter."
