Mickey Mouse Suspenders

What held up Mickey Mouse's trousers?

MMDE: Mickey Mouse wore suspenders

Current: Mickey Mouse did not wear suspenders

Mickey Mouse made his full debut in the classic Disney cartoon "Steamboat Willie" in 1928.

Appearing today as a shaky black and white quaint historical curiosity, it's causing a stir amongst many people who are pointing to something it shows as a Mandela Effect. That is - he has no suspenders. They are certain he used to use them to keep his trousers up.

People are reporting that he definitely had them, not only because they saw them but because they distinctly remember what he did with them.  They remember him snapping them in time with the music as he turned the wheel, strutted across the deck and whistled, etc.

That snapping action

The memory of how he snapped them is very specific. He is described as hooking both thumbs under each one, low down, and stretching his arms out wide before letting go, usually with a whistle.

If he never even had susopenders, how come so many remember this exact action?
