With the assistance of Sew Trendy Accessories and Off My Hooks, Disney Karen Marie, is back for Babble with another installment adorably brilliant baby make-over images, Disney style. Adding to past photographic creations (Disney Princesses and Disney Villains), eight sleeping beauties pay tribute to Mickey Mouse in honor of his 90th Birthday. Cute costumed creations create cartoon classic characters of Mickey through the years.

All eight enchanting images feature napping newborns as various versions of Mickey Mouse as he appeared in animated adventures spanning his 90-year cartoon career:

  • “Brave Little Tailor” – Giants are no match for this mighty Mouse during this 1938 cartoon short
  • “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” – “Fantasia” was Walt’s first stereo animated feature.  The 1940 film featured, of course, Mickey Mouse – this time as an apprentice to the mighty Yensid.
  • “Fun and Fancy Free” – Jack and the Beanstalk received a Disney adaptation in 1947
  • “Mickey’s Christmas Carol” – saw the infa-mouse rodent in the role of Bob Cratchit in the 1983 Dicken’s adaptation.
  • “The Prince and the Pauper” – In this 1990 cartoon, Mickey mouse played both parts (prince and pauper).
  • “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” – shows him in classic form as he hosted this 2006 Disney Channel series.
