Minnie Mouse to receive star in Hollywood 40 years after Mickey

Perry matched Minnie Mouse with a polka dot dress and hat to complement the animated mouse's typical getup.

"Minnie Mouse is a woman of the ages and her iconic status makes her a great addition to our Walk of Fame!".

"In true Hollywood fashion, she delivered a truly memorable performance but Mickey got all the credit", Iger said during Monday's ceremony.

"Maybe he was more popular back in the day", she said.

The beloved character was honored with a ceremony at about 11:30 a.m. attended by pop singer Katy Perry and the chairman and CEO of Walt Disney, Robert A. Iger, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced. "And into my peripheral vision came Minnie and Mickey Mouse-printed diapers!"

"After 90 years of serving LOOKS & smiles as the polka dot queen, it's time she got that recognition!" No matter where Perry goes in the world - whether it be Anaheim, Orlando, Paris or Tokyo - it's always so comforting to see Minnie's face, she said.

The famous mouse celebrated her 90th anniversary in show business with a star placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, joining Disney stars like Donald Duck, Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, Tinker Bell, Kermit the Frog, and, of course, her longtime love Mickey Mouse.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
