One of Walt Disney’s earliest cartoon stars ever, the plucky rabbit first made his film debut on September 5, 1927 in the cartoon short “Trolley Troubles.” Walt Disney went on to produce 26 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit shorts until losing the rights to the character in 1928, an experience that led to the creation of Mickey Mouse.
Oswald returned to the Disney family in 2006 (whew!) and made his first Disney Parks appearance earlier this year at Tokyo DisneySea.
Later this month, guests at Disneyland will finally get to meet him! Look for the lucky little rabbit on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park starting September 14.
