The original voice actor for Mickey Mouse was Walt Disney himself from 1928-1947, before the duty was passed on to Disney sound effects employee Jimmy MacDonald because years of smoking had affected Walt Disney‘s voice. In 1976, Wayne Allwine began voicing the character. The first voice of Minnie Mouse was Marcellite Garner, a female employee of Disney Studio’s Ink and Paint Department, followed by various female employees of the department throughout the years until 1986. That year, female voice actor Russi Taylor began voicing Minnie Mouse alongside Allwine’s Mickey Mouse. In 1991, the voice actors were married until Allwine’s death in 2009.
