    Wow. What did that entail? Was it a cattle call? Did you go to the Disney studios?

    Didn't the colored versions come about as a result of the New Mickey Mouse Club in the 70s.....the disco version. lol

    (I actually auditioned for the show! But don't let that get out.)

    Or did they appear before that?

    I remember as a kid you had the original black felt cap with ears ( stapled on ) I still have one of mine boxed up in the garage with my hat collection. I also remember they had a lime green with white ears and brim as well as I believe a Magenta one with white accents. I always was led to believe the black was for boys and the colored versions were for girls since it was a the 70's and people were still trying to force a male or female direction on children.

    Oh yes! The little brim! I was of the generation that thought those were really geeky...but they are adorable on the little boys in pictures from the 50s and 60s.

    ahhhh... thank you...I get tired of looking up the abbreviations and acronyms.

    Some of the young people I know use the phrase "G1", like "generation one" (I had to ask what they meant by that, too), but maybe that is just toys.

    It's more about the fact that they are just not the most popular option anymore. Can the headband style be embroidered? I've never even checked.

    Again, this is more about nostalgia and is aimed at an older generation. It's just a fact that the headbands are far more visible in the parks, but way back when the skin caps and Mickey Ears were more prevalent.

    It's funny that my memory was that I wore my ears into my teen years, but when I tried to put them on, they sat on top of my head like a cup! Has my head really grown since I was 15! I guess so....;-)

    And actually, I just remembered the year that all the boys started wearing the Goofy hats, with the long ears hanging down the side. That was quite a popular item.

    Disrespect? What are you talking about? Are people trashing Mickey somewhere that I don't know about? Has Mickey become a lightning rod for anti-mouse sentiment? This sounds like you're complaining about something else entirely and are trying to draw a (very crooked) line between these two points. Could you clarify please?

    Also the headbands are predominantly MINNIE ears and the original intent of those was outfit coordination, although we've long moved beyond that.

    Men generally don't wear headbands, hence why there are very few bow-less ones. The removable/swappable bow version flopped hard, so I don't think there's going to be a plan to go back to MICKEY ears anytime soon. Though, I could be wrong given the desire to be more inclusive in merchandising.

    With respect to the OG hats, I suspect the decline is more correlated to the rise of regular baseball caps. When the ears first came out, baseball caps (or any hats with brims) were not as predominant as today. No one is going to opt for basic ears (which are kinda cardboard junk, lets be honest) vs a hat made of dry-fit material that keeps your head cool and sun off your face.
    Sarcasm and absurdity . With text instead of audible tone, I admit I may have not successfully got it across.
