This makes sense since it was on this date 88 years ago that Mickey made his big screen debut in New York at the Colony Theatre where it played Steamboat Willie for the first time.

While on the show, Mickey will also debut a new music video entitled, “What We Got” which will later be posted on Mickey’s Facebook page.
