Mickey Pearce was born in 1960 in Peckham, London, SE15 to Mr Pearce and Kathleen Pearce. He had a sister. Mickey went to school with Rodney Trotter and became good friends with him. In 1981, Mickey stole Rodney's girlfriend Monica, a woman who either had fat thighs or bopped the night away in nightclubs wearing jodphurs. Mickey's grandad once had piles. Mickey was a bit like Trigger, a mate of Rodney's brother Del, a bit brainless. However, Mickey and Trigger were both small time crooks who did dodgy deals.
In 1983, Mickey and Rodney went into partnership as Rodney was sick of being Del's dogsbody down the markets, being a lookout and humping Del's suitcase all over London. Mickey was unreliable and untrustworthy so Rodney swiftly went back working for Del again. In late 1983, Mickey and Rodney tried to chat up 2 girls. Del insulted them by saying they were the ugly sister and asked if they saw Cinderella. This put Rodney and Mickey off the girls.
In late 1984, Mickey started learning Aikido. Del asked him to say something in Aikido, but Mickey said it is not a language but a martial art. Mickey said he had a fight with 4 blokes the other night. Del thought it was a pillow fight. Mickey said he wiped them out with Aikido. Del then said "Sheep, cows? I know what it is. Its bull****". In 1985, Mickey and Rodney placed a 50 pence bet that Rodney would bring a woman to a party, and Mickey said he wouldn't. Del thought it was £50.
In 1986, Mickey was dating a woman called Amanda, a punk. Mickey and Rodney got involved in making a local community film, but Mickey had ideas of making it a dirty film. Rodney was worried that the villainous Driscoll Brothers, (whom even Ronnie Kray told them to "calm down a bit") who made money on these films, would not be pleased to see someone muscling in on their business.
Mickey Pearce was unseen for the first 2 seasons of Only Fools And Horses but was mentioned by Rodney Trotter in Go West Young Man - (15th September 1981) and No Greater Love (11th November 1982). Mickey first appeared in Healthy Competition (17th November 1983).
