The Mickey that isn't Mickey balloon with ears inside a clear balloon.

Filled with helium on the spot when you buy it. Some sort of trick to getting the ears to inflate.

Do I need to do your fucking detective work for you? According to Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macy's_Th ... Day_Parade
The balloons were introduced in 1928, replacing live zoo animals, Sarg's large animal-shaped balloons, were produced by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio from the 1920s through 1980.[22] That year there was no procedure to deflate the balloons and they were simply released. In 1928 five of the larger balloons were designed and filled with helium to rise above 2,000 feet (610 meters) and slowly deflate for whomever was lucky enough to capture the contestants in Macy's "balloon race(s)" and return them for a reward of $100 (equivalent to $1,500 with inflation as of 2019), this lasted until 1932.[23]
You shall remit my detective fee of $1,000 ($500/hr., 2 hr. minimum) post haste.
