1928 - Jens was 36 years old when Mickie Mouse was born! He first appeared in Disney's Steamboat Willie, along with Minnie.

It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

1938 - By the time he was 46 years old, on October 30th, a Sunday, The Mercury Theatre on the Air broadcast Orson Welles' special Halloween show The War of the World's. A clever take on H.G.

Because of the realistic nature of the "news," there was a public outcry the next day, calling for regulation by the FCC.
