"And into my peripheral vision came Minnie and Mickey Mouse-printed diapers!"

A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoring Minnie Mouse will be unveiled Monday, marking the 90th anniversary of the release of her first of more than 70 animated films, "Steamboat Willie".

"Minnie Mouse is a woman of the ages and her iconic status makes her a great addition to our Walk of Fame!".

"I'm so grateful and I want to thank all my friends from around the world". And Mickey, I am so happy you're here to share this magical day with me.

"In true Hollywood fashion, she delivered a truly memorable performance but Mickey got all the credit", Iger said during Monday's ceremony.

Disney officials and pop star Katy Perry will unveil the star honoring the animated character. "This really is the best day ever!"

Minnie Mouse is known for her polka dot attire and the ceremony coincides with National Polka Dot Day. Trust me. I am trying. Since then, 15 others have been enshrined, including Disney cohorts Donald Duck, Kermit the Frog, Snow White, Tinker Bell, Winnie the Pooh and, as a group, the Muppets.

Perry, dressed in her own polkadot dress, said Minnie has always served as the highlight of her visits to Disney parks. Chairman and CEO Bob Iger also joined in on the festivities. "It is a special skill to bring joy to so many and she does it with an effortless bat of a lash".
