  • Description:

    Considered to be the debut of the infamous Mickey Mouse, Steamboat Willie caught the attention and hearts of an unsuspecting crowd in 1928. Not only was this character adorable and hilarious, but the actual short film cartoon was a technological advancement in and of itself. Steamboat Willie is the first successful cartoon with synchronized sound, including character sound and a musical score. Walt Disney had a knack for knowing exactly what should come next and he knew that Steamboat Willie was the future for film. Arranged by Wilfred Jackson, the musical score adds depth and emotion to a black and white canvas, giving the audience something to enjoy listening to as much as watching. Walt Disney was quoted, "And it was all started by a mouse," and he couldn't be more right. Steamboat Willie introduced the world to two cartoon characters that would go down in history as the most popular cartoon characters that ever graced the screen.
