Pete All Over

Is Mickey the most used character by Disney? Is it Donald? Nope, it's good all Pete. Known as Black Pete, Pegleg Pete, Sharkey on DuckTales, and Pete on Goof Troop. He first appeared in Alice Comedies in 1925, then was Oswald's villian from 1927 to 1933, was Mickey's opponent in Steamboat Willie, his likeness was used as Sharkey in DuckTales and got top billing in Goof Troop with his own family Peg, PJ and Pistol. Interestingly enough, in the Goofy Movie and Extremely Goofy Movie, his wife and daughter never were seen or mentioned. So yeah, he has been mostly a villian or just plain convining.

Originally like a cat or something, now he's like some kind of gerbil-like creature. I think he was a devil dog.

Check out the article on him.
