As we’ve written before, The Walt Disney Company owns “The Golden Girls” today, and they have been involved in one form or another from the very beginning. Disney treats their stars VERY well; not only financially, but with fun parties and events, and by sending them presents on a regular basis. One of the things that Disney gave to Rue was this gorgeous carved Mickey Mouse. This is not your typical Disney piece of merchandise, this piece was created from solid pieces of wood that were glued together and then carved. It is a large piece; it stands a foot and a half tall – this is a real Mickey Mouse statue. Rue kept it in the corner of a guest room and she added the black hat herself to keep Mickey’s ears warm. Rue’s carved Mickey Mouse comes with her hat and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
