43179 Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse Buildable Characters is a Disney 18+ set that was released on July 1, 2020.

Background

Mickey Mouse is a cartoon character created in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at The Walt Disney Studios, who serves as the mascot of the Walt Disney Company. An anthropomorphic mouse who typically wears red shorts, large yellow shoes, and white gloves, Mickey is one of the world's most recognizable fictional characters. Mickey was first seen in a test screening of the cartoon short Plane Crazy, on May 15, 1928, but it failed to impress the audience and Walt could not find a distributor for the short. Walt went on to produce a second Mickey short, The Gallopin' Gaucho, which was also not released for lack of a distributor. Over the years Mickey Mouse gained popularity, especially in his breakout "talkie" part in Steamboat Willie. Mickey has since become one of the most popular characters in history and the subject of the Mickey Mouse universe.

Minnie Mouse is another iconic Disney character, and was originally created to be Mickey's love interest. Minnie was designed in the fashion of a flapper girl. Her main outfit consisted of a short flapper girl dress that often revealed her distinctive patched knickers. In her original appearance she was not Mickey's girlfriend, and the first few years featured shorts with the main source of comedy being Mickey's unsuccessful attempts to woo her. During the 1930s to 1940s their relationship stabilized and they became a couple, and have since remained one of the most iconic cartoon couples in history.
