It is widely known that Sendak decided to become an illustrator at the young age of 12 after watching Disney’s film Fantasia (1940), which made him an instant fan of the "Mouse". He also amassed a collection of Mickey Mouse and other Disney memorabilia throughout his lifetime.

 

Sendak felt that his adoration for Mickey Mouse influenced many of his illustrations and called Mickey Mouse one of the most dominant figures of his childhood. He had been quoted to have said:

"Oh, I adored Mickey Mouse when I was a child. He was the emblem of happiness and funniness. You went to the movies then, you saw two movies and a short. When Mickey Mouse came on the screen and there was his big head, my sister said she had to hold onto me. I went berserk."
