Andree Vermeulen, Steve Agee and Ken Jennings imagine famous cartoons in their early stages. (2:24)

All right, now it's timefor tonight's #HashtagWars.

(cheering)

89 years ago today, Mickey Mousemade his first appearance

in the animated short, Plane Crazy.

In it, Mickey refusesto give up his seat

and gets his nose brokenby airport police.

-(laughter)-Uh, nah, just kidding around.

There's nothing anachronisticlike that,

except for the factthe Mickey behaves

exactly like Bill O'Reilly.

Uh, take a look.

AGEE:Oh, my God.

JENNINGS:Yeah!

Oh, my God.

Yeah, Bill O'Reilly(bleep) a mouse.

-Uh...-(laughter)

But... did you knowthat Mickey was a reimagining

of an earlierWalt Disney character?

Not a lot of people know this--you can see it

if you goto California Adventure.

Disney only created Mickeybecause of a copyright dispute

over this creature,Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

The second most popularblack-and-white character

named Oswald after this guy.

-(laughter, groans)-Uh, Oswald..
