Section B 2b
When people say “culture”，we think of art and history.①But one very famous symbol in American culture is a cartoon.We all know and love the black mouse with two large round ears—Mickey Mouse.②Over 80 years ago，he first appeared in the cartoon Steamboat Willie.③When this cartoon came out in New York on November 18,1928，it was the first cartoon with sound and music.The man behind Mickey was Walt Disney.④He became very rich and successful.In the 1930s，he made 87 cartoons with Mickey.
Some people might ask how this cartoon animal became so popular.One of the main reasons is that Mickey was like a common man，but he always tried to face any danger.⑤In his early films，Mickey was unlucky and had many problems such as losing his house or girlfriend，Minnie.⑥However，he was always ready to try his best.People went to the cinema to see the “little man” win.Most of them wanted to be like Mickey.
On November 18,1978，Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.People today expect to see more than just a little mouse fighting bad guys，but many still know who he is.Who has a pair of ears more famous than Mickey's？
