Pete  is the main antagonist in the 'Mickey Mouse Universe'. According to Disney he is an anthropomorphic cat, likely to contrast with his enemy (Mickey) being a mouse. Despite being a member of the feline family, he is often mistaken for a dog, do to his massive size.


Pete is the oldest continuing Disney character, having debuted three years before Mickey Mouse in the cartoon Alice Solves the Puzzle (1925). He was originally an anthropomorphic bear but with the advent of Mickey Mouse in 1928, he was defined as a cat.

Pete has appeared in more than 40 animated short films between 1925 and 1954, having been featured in the Alice Comedies and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoons, and later in the Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy cartoons. Pete's final appearance during this era was The Lone Chipmunks (1954), which was the final installment of a three-part Chip an' Dale series. He also appeared in the short films Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983), The Prince and the Pauper (1990), and Get a Horse! (2013). Pete has also made many appearances in Disney comics, and often appeared as Sylvester Shyster's dimwitted sidekick in the Mickey Mouse comic strip. Pete later made several appearances in television, most extensively in Goof Troop (1992–1993) where he was given more continuity, having a family and a regular job as a used car salesman. Pete also appears in House of Mouse (2001–2003) as the greedy property owner who's always trying devious ways and loop holes to get the club shut down.

Although Pete is often typecast as a villain, he has shown great versatility within the role, playing everything from a hardened criminal (The Dognapper, The Lone Chipmunks) to a legitimate authority figure (Moving Day, Donald Gets Drafted, Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip), and from a menacing trouble maker (Building a Building, Trombone Trouble) to a victim of mischief himself (Timber). On some occasions, Pete has even played a sympathetic character, all the while maintaining his underlying menacing nature. (Symphony Hour, How to Be a Detective) He seems to have lost much of his antagonistic demeanor in his Mickey Mouse Clubhouse appearances and is today a largely friendly character, although his antics can occasionally prove an annoyance.


Pete's personality varies a great deal depending on the character he plays in a given story. In many of the Disney shorts, he was a very villainous character and wanted to kill the heroes. In other media, such as Goof Troop, he was more of a jerk to the heroes or an antihero, rather than a villain. He's arguably at his softest in preschool television show, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Here, he plays less of an antagonist and more of a mischievous character who could be annoying to the show's heroes.
