Meet Mickey Mouse!! Looks a bit like Steamboat Willie Mickey doesn't it. This guy is on a building downtown and has been there unknown amount of time. My DH is an ex-cop. When he first got on the force (back in the early 70's, like 71 I think) they sent him downtown and told him he couldn't come back to the station until he found Mickey Mouse. DH said he used to know how long he was there and maybe who painted him but doesn't remember. I think I will write the radio station and see if they can get some answers cuz now I am curious. When my oldest son was turning 16 we had a party (of course) and we put together a scavenger hunt (in cars) that eventually led him to my mom's house where we had a car for him for his present. We put Mickey Mouse on the hunt. It was great fun.
Mickey is at the top of a building in downtown Mansfield and you can only see him going east on Third St. I think he is pretty cool and unique and I hope they never paint over him.
