Athletic Profile: Minnie Mouse, Bow-Tique Bow-Dazzlers, Quarterback, Free Safety.
The family of Minnie Mouse are included as relatives by marriage of Mickey based on Walt Disney’s comment that Mickey and Minnie are a married couple, despite the fact that they play boyfriend and girlfriend in stories.
Marcus Mouse is Minnie’s father. He first appears as a farmer in the Mickey Mouse comic strip story line “Mr. Slicker and the Egg Robbers,” first published between September 22 and December 26, 1930. He’s also appeared in some English stories from 1930s Mickey Mouse Annuals.
Marshal Mouse and Matilda Mouse are Minnie’s grandparents.
Millie and Melody Mouse are Minnie Mouse’s nieces. Minnie has had an inconsistent list of nieces. In Europe and Brazil, most often a single niece is depicted, even consistently named Melodia (Melody). She is a Disney Studio creation by Jim Fletcher in the mid-sixties whose primary “task” seems to be to drive Morty & Ferdie crazy.
However, in at least one other Italian or Brazilian tale Minnie did have another niece named Zizi (whether this was the name of Melody’s twin or just another name for Melody is unknown). However, in America, Minnie has had a couple sets of twin nieces as portrayed by Paul Murry, named both Melody & Melinda and Pammy & Tammy (these could very easily be the same twins, but Paul Murry and his writer forgot they had already named them in a previous tale). There is also one more set of twin nieces who appear on occasion named Lily & Tiny, though these two are distinctly much older than Melody (and Melinda), often used as teenage foils for Minnie. These teenage nieces have yet to appear in comics printed in the USA.
It is reported that another name is attributed in American comics giving Minnie’s single niece the name of Molly. Another set of nieces appear in an early Mickey Mouse book from the 1940s as triplets calling themselves “Dolly, Polly & Molly,” while a lone niece attributed to Mickey appears in the cartoon “Gulliver Mickey” (1934) named “Maisie” (listed in Mickey Mouse: His Life and Times (Harper & Row, 1986)).
The only known possible film appearance of any niece is in 1983’s “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” where Mickey Mouse, as Bob Cratchit, has a daughter. In this film Morty & Ferdie are said to have played Cratchit’s two sons (including one as Tiny Tim), and since Melody seems to be the most consistent name used for any niece attributed to Minnie, it is quite probably that it was Melody who played the role of Bob Crachit’s daughter.
Millie & Melody both appear in Minnie’s Bow-Toons on Disney Junior, and are voiced by Avalon Robbins.
However, in USA comics the naming is not nearly consistent enough to form a concrete character profile. The only fact that is really stable is that Minnie definitely has twin nieces.
Perhaps the first actual appearance of either Melody or any other niece of Minnie’s is from “Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories” #87 where a much younger niece appears.
Mortimer Mouse is Minnie’s uncle from whom she inherits an estate. He is a rancher and first appears in the Mickey Mouse comic strip story line “Mickey Mouse in Death Valley” (1930). After that, he appears in several other Mickey Mouse comic strip adventures in the 1930s. He has occasionally appeared in more modern comics.
