Offseason Update 5 The Minnie Mouse Connection?
I was rewatching Episode 22, Born To Run and I noticed that when the camera focuses on Tom and Kate's toy plane, there is a Minnie Mouse toy on the car seat. (Screencap)
I looked at Wikipedia and noticed a lot of the numbers appeared in Minnie's history.
Disney also owns ABC.
Minnie Mouse is a fictional character of the Mickey Mouse universe featured in animated cartoons, comic strips and comic book by The Walt Disney Company.
The comic strip story The Gleam (published January 19 - May 2, 1942) by Merrill De Maris and Floyd Gottfredson first gave her full name as Minerva Mouse. Minerva has since been a recurring alias for her.
Minerva was a Roman goddess of crafts and wisdom. The Romans celebrated her festival from March 19 to 23.
The earlier comic strip story Mr Slicker and the Egg Robbers (published September 22 (this is the exact day Lost premiered in the United States!) - December 26, 1930)
Mickey and Minnie debuted together in Plane Crazy, first released on May 15, 1928.
Their next appearance in The Karnival Kid (May 23, 1929) casted Mickey as a hot dog vendor and Minnie as a carnival Shimmy Dancer.
Her final appearance for the year was in Wild Waves, first released on August 15 (8/15 a very recurring number), 1929.
She spends a day at the beach with Mickey. Their activities of singing and dancing are soon interrupted when Minnie is swept by a wave into the sea. She panics and seems to start drowning. Mickey uses a row boat to rescue her and return her to the shore but Minnie is still visibly shaken from the experience.
Mickey starts singing the tune of Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep, a maritime ballad written in 1832 by Emma Hart Willard (February 23, 1787 - April 15, 1870), in an apparent effort to cheer her up. Minnie cheers up and the short ends.
