About the Episode:
- “As the Guinness World Record holder for the most Mickey Mouse memorabilia, you might say Janet Esteves is mad about Mickey! Her collection, with over 14,000 items includes over 130 watches, a Swarovski crystal Mickey Mouse handbag, a Mickey Mouse record player and a 7-foot Mickey Mouse statue. Joining Janet is her husband Jose, who plays a huge role in her collecting–beginning with their honeymoon to Disney World in the 1970’s. Kate Martin, a certified appraiser and Mickey fan herself, will appraise the collection and see if she can convince Janet to give up one of her beloved Mickey’s in exchange for a one-of-a-kind Mickey Mouse item made especially for her.”
