|List of Appearances|
Minnie Mouse is a Disney comics character. The comic strip story "The Gleam" (published January 19–May 2, 1942) by Merrill De Maris and Floyd Gottfredson first gave her full name as Minerva Mouse, although this is seldom used.
Minnie is a female mouse who is Mickey Mouse's girlfriend. She first appeared with him in the cartoon short Plane Crazy.
Her father, farmer Marcus Mouse, first appeared in the comic-strip story "Mr. Slicker and the Egg Robbers" (published September 22–December 26, 1930). Her mother, also a farmer, appeared in the same story, but was not mentioned by name. The same story featured photographs of Minnie's uncle Milton Mouse with his family, and her grandparents Marshal Mouse and Matilda Mouse.
She usually wears a bow, often red or pink and frequently polka-dotted.
