Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

Oswald is the lovable rabbit created by Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney. He can be found in many animated shorts created by Iwerks and Disney, most of which can be found in the Walt Disney Treasures box set: The Adventures of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. He can also be found in video games such as Epic Mickey, Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. He can also be found in other merchandise such as clothing, pins, Disney art, books, and toys.

He lives in Wasteland and has many friends he can count on such as the Fab Five, Horace Horsecollar, Ortensia, Fanny, Clarabelle Cow, and the rest of the good hearted Disney characters. His enemies include The Mad Doctor, The Shadow Blot, Pete, Homer the Cat, The Phantom Blot, and the rest of the Disney villains.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Ears 

Oswald is a short and average weight bunny, he has black fur except for his face which consists of white fur, black eyes, a black nose, long ears, a black tail, and he wears either green or blue shorts. He is very adventurous, good hearted, good spirited, and he means well even if it doesn't always seem that way.

*FUN FACT* Oswald was traded back to Disney from Universal in 2006 for the contract rights of sports announcer Al Michaels, thanks for the efforts of CEO Bob Iger.

He first appeared in the animated cartoon 'Poor Papa' in 1927. He has been voiced by many people over the years such as Bill Nolan, Frank Welker, Pinto Colvig, and June Foray.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

Oswald hasn't been found as a meet and greet character as of yet since being reacquired. References can be found in parks such as the Magic Kingdom in WDW, Oswald's Gas Station Shop on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure, and in Tokyo Disneyland. It would be great to see him get used more often in the parks. He is a wonderful character and needs to get more exposure.
