Not according to the Guinness World Records book.

In 1918, by the time she was 31 years old, on November 11th, an armistice was signed between the Allies and Germany, ending the fighting on the Western Front in World War I.

He has since appeared in more short films, feature films, compilations, TV series, music records, comic books, video games, award shows, amusement park rides, and commercials than any other cartoon character. He even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "What's up, Doc?"

In 1961, by the time she was 74 years old, on January 20th, John F. Kennedy became the 35th President of the United States. He had previously been a U.S. Senator and a Congressman, both from the state of Massachusetts, as well as a Naval lieutenant in World War II.
