Fact #15

If you haven’t watched Steamboat Willie, you should.

Thought to be the first animated short introducing Mickey and Minnie Mouse, but they actually made their debut months before in a test screening of Plane Crazy. Steamboat Willie was actually the third Mickey film to be produced, but it was just the first to be distributed.

Also notable is the fact that the film was one of the first animated features to feature synchronised sound.

  1. Thanks for this fact! The way they ended up being released brings lots of confusion.
