I woke up to a happy realization that today was Walt Disney’s birthday.  And just as any devoted fan would do, I made sure to spend some time over breakfast to comb through vintage Disney videos on Youtube.

Imagine my delight when I actually found one of my favorite classic episodes — “Building a Building” — which I wanted to share in honor of the birthday boy. But first, a little Disney trivia which, I must say, shook me to the core.

Did you know Mickey Mouse’s original name was… Mortimer?!? Apparently, it was Walt’s wife, Lillian, whom we owe our gratitude for the name change. (Whew.)

Enjoy the video, everyone!
