Wayne Allwine

Though not a familiar face to most TV and film viewers, Wayne Allwine does have a legendary voice. Most notably, he voiced animated character Mickey Mouse for over 30 years, bringing the iconic mouse to life in films, TV, and even video games. Allwine, who was only the third person to ever voice Mickey, debuted his signature take on the character in the late '70s on the opening credits for the daytime Disney series "The New Mickey Mouse Club." In 1983, he voiced Mickey and several other characters in the short theatrical film "Mickey's Christmas Carol" and brought the optimistic Mickey to life in feature films like the genre-defying "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," which featured a groundbreaking blend of live action and animation, and the classically-drawn adventure mystery "The Great Mouse Detective." He spent much of the '90s voicing Mickey's appearances in Disney channel series like "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" and "House of Mouse," and he also lent his recognizable talents to 1995's theatrical release "A Goofy Movie," which followed Goofy and his rebellious son Max on a wild cross-country trip. He later collaborated with Japanese video game developer Square Enix on all four titles in the RPG series "Kingdom Hearts," which featured many iconic Disney characters and locations. Allwine, who married Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse, in 1991, also enjoyed a successful career as a sound editor and foley artist, creating and editing effects for films like the '80s comedy "Three Men and a Baby" and the sci-fi movie "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier."
