Kids, adults, men, women, everybody has a relationship with Mickey Mouse.
I adored Mickey Mouse when I was a child. He was the emblem of happiness and funniness.
When you say 'comic book' in America, people think of Mickey Mouse, and Archie. It has a connotation of juvenile.
In Australia, I grew up watching 'The Mickey Mouse Club,' my son grew up watching 'Sesame Street,' my grandson's growing up watching 'Dora The Explorer.' So we are sort of saturated with American culture from the day we're born, and to those of those who do have an ear for it, it's second nature.
I played in rhumba bands, mickey mouse bands; all kinds of bands.
