Everyone knows Mickey Rooney, but who really remembers the extent of his success? How many now living can testify not only to how large this man loomed over the American film landscape but also to the particular qualities that made him such an enormous success in his prime? Everyone knows Rooney, who died Sunday in Los Angeles at the great age of 93, precisely because he lived so long, the tireless last surviving star of Hollywood's 1930s Golden Age, a performer always ready to make an appearance when there was a crowd waiting to applaud.

Explaining how a natural introvert such as himself could flash Mickey Mouse ears in front of more than 50,000 screaming fans, Adrian Gonzalez looked around the Dodgers' locker room. "It's the clubhouse," he said. "It's the city, it's the fans. " The acquisition of Gonzalez and three other players from the Boston Red Sox in 2012 was expected to transform the Dodgers, and it did. What was unknown at the time was that the deal would also change Gonzalez. With the Dodgers, Gonzalez has allowed his personality to emerge in ways it never did with the Red Sox or San Diego Padres.

BOSTON - St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright said he has not spoken with Adrian Gonzalez since he accused the Dodgers first baseman of “Mickey Mouse” antics during Game 3 of the National League Championship Series. Wainwright, who will start Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox, said he meant his comments “in jest” and said that he had spent some time dodging questions about Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers' rookie who had paused to admire a home run that never actually left the park.

The Disney Corp. means a lot of things these days: Marvel superheroes, "Star Wars" and Pixar among them, but the company is going back to basics for its latest Disney Channel series, titled simply, "Mickey Mouse. " The new series will feature short adventures starring the company's mascot getting involved in slapstick hijinks the way he used to back in the 1930s. In a deliberate attempt to get away from the modern look of computer animation, the new Mickey Mouse shorts will be done in traditional 2-D animation and feature a Mickey Mouse styled as he was in the 1930s, back when his short films were nominated nine times for best animated short film.

So Anaheim City Councilman William D. Ehrle thinks that accepting free Disneyland and game tickets, parking and who knows what else is an extension of his duties as an elected official ("Officials Were Warned About Gift Limits in Anaheim," April 4). Well, after I finished laughing, I figured what the heck. Put me on the list for all of these freebies. I'll look on them as an extension of my duties as a voter and taxpayer in the city of Anaheim. By the way, does Jackie Autry know she's giving out all these free passes?

If you're craving the art and music of the late Walt Disney, you should go anywhere but the world premiere of the affectionate “When You Wish: The Story of Walt Disney” at UCLA's Freud Playhouse. There may be no other place on Earth so free of Disney iconography.  This musical by writer, composer and lyricist Dean McClure portrays Walt (Tim Martin Gleason) as a dreamer who suffers setbacks but perseveres with the support of his business partner and brother, Roy (the dryly witty Andy Umberger, who also narrates)

On Monday, after the Dodgers beat the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright said Gonzalez had heckled him from third base. "Mickey Mouse stuff," Wainwright said. " We are in L.A., so Mickey Mouse stuff does go ," Gonzalez quipped in response late Monday. "You know, Mickey Mouse is only an hour away. It fits us. " On Tuesday, however, Gonzalez said he was not thrilled with how the issue had turned into a full-blown media controversy.
