Disney Mickey

Mickey is now considered a corporate logo. He was criticized as lacking appeal for being "sanitized" and taking second place to Donald Duck. But everything Mickey was, having become History, became, also, timeless. All he represented passed from the awareness of everyday life into the atemporality of the unconscious mind. Mickey is no longer just "this" or "that", he is a symbol.
