Chinese new year is around the corner. I realized I've spent 8 new years in a row in US, really miss the holiday atmosphere in Beijing! Since mouse appears first among the 12 zodiac animals, a whole new cycle will soon begin!
Although in real life mice/rats have been strongly repelled by human, they are usually the shining stars in cartoons and animations. Let's take a look -
Mickey Mouse as Disney icon
the genius mouse chef in Ratatouille
cutie Jerry in Tom & Jerry, the never-ending story between Cat and Mouse
Mouse becomes an adorable pet in Stuart Little
Mouse even made it to the Mars in this German cartoon
