Black PeteBlack Pete
(formerly known as Peg-Leg Pete
) is a fictional character
from the Walt Disney
stables. He is an anthropomorphic cat
(sometimes with a peg-leg), best known as the arch nemesis of Mickey Mouse
. Though he is usually associated with the Mickey Mouse universe
Pete actually appeared in cartoons
long before Mickey, and is thus Disney's oldest continuing character.
Black Pete first appeared in the Alice Comedies in "Alice Solves the Puzzle". Next he appeared in the "Oswald the Lucky Rabbit" series as Oswald's continuing adversary, then he appeared as Mickey's enemy beginning with Steamboat Willie.
In the comics Pete teams up with Sylvester Shyster or Eli Squinch or Weasel.
Sometimes he teams up with other bad guys in the Disney universe like Scrooge McDuck's enemies the Beagle Boys or Magica De Spell or Mad Madam Mim or Captain Hook or the witch from Snow White.
On the TV show Goof Troop he has a family who includes his wife Peg and their two children PJ (short for Pete Junior) and Pistol, and their dog Chainsaw. They live next door to Goofy and his son Max.
Pete reverted back to his evil ways on Mickey Mouse Works. In House of Mouse he plays the role of the evil landlord.
