"Mickey's Follies" (1929) [2 of 2] - Pie-Eyed Mickey and Minnie "Yoo-Hoo Pin

Even though it has a little rust, the colors on this pin are bright. I had purchased a few items and this pin was stuck in the bottom of one of the boxes -- I didn't even know it was there! I thought it was a nice item and have worn it around a few times. The information on the back of the pin would lead me to believe that this was made in England.

Note both Mickey and Minnie are "pie eyed" -- a way of drawing the eyes that was only used for a short period due to the complexity it inadvertently created.

What I didn't realize until later was that the song from the film ("Minnie's Yoo-Hoo Song") became the theme for the Mickey Mouse Club.
