Mickey Rooney dies at 93; social media reacts

Actor Mickey Rooney, who has died at the age of 93, was performing in his parents' vaudeville troupe, dressed in a little tuxedo, by the time he was just 17 months old.

He went on to become one of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's biggest stars during the Golden Years of Hollywood, topping the box office in 1939, 1940 and 1941.

He is being remembered Sunday for his legendary career, which included later success in television and on Broadway. Younger audiences may know him best for his role as one of the robbers in the 2006 hit, "Night at the Museum."
