Miky Maous was first published with 52 pages on Friday July 1st 1966. On 12 November 2004 Miky Maous celebrates it's 2000th issue, making it the longest running weekly magazine in Greece ever! The event was celebrated with an exhibition of Carl Barks oil paintings and paintings of other Greek artists for the event. In addition publisher Nea Aktina celebrated with honorary guest Don Rosa the publication of a new book containing all stories of Don Rosa's famous epic The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck.
The magazine has been found at kiosks every Friday ever since 1966. Even the turmoil of the coup d' etat on a Friday in April 1967, did not prevent its circulation; Miky Maous was the only Greek magazine or newspaper to reach the kiosk that day! Due to political considerations, the cover of the next issue was reprinted; the title of the story was changed from the "King of the West" to the "Lord of the West", and the figure of Mickey was retouched to erase the crown from his head.
In 1984, the golden era of publishing in Greece, Miky Maous' circulation reached 114,315 copies. This meant that one out of every two Greek children read the magazine that week!! Probably every Greek adult was once a reader of Miky Maous. The magazine has successfully maintained its popularity since then.
Miky Maous always strongly supported publishing stories featuring the classical characters, such as Mickey, Donald and Uncle Scrooge, as the most recognized part of Walt Disney's art. Each issue now contains 100 pages, 75 of which are comic stories. The other pages include news, puzzles, letter columns, and editorials featuring info-pages on sports, animals, music, computer-games and movies. The magazine is printed on high quality glossy paper.
