Mickey and Minnie – for real

Mickey and MinnieI’ve just discovered something that pleases me enormously. Apparently Wayne Anthony Allwine, the voice of Mickey Mouse for 32 years, was actually married to Russi Taylor, voice of Minnie. They married in 1991 and lived happily ever after – or more accurately, until Allwine died in 2009.

Disney is all about illusion and fantasy, so there’s something rather lovely about discovering that sometimes the dream really does come true.
