So what is the story behind Duffy?

Minnie Mouse made Mickey Mouse a teddy bear so that he would never be lonesome. Mickey Mouse loved the handmade bear and named him Duffy.

The rest, as the saying goes, is history!

Mickey and Duffy have traveled the world together, sharing many exciting adventures.
