Disney’s lovable and iconic mascot, Mickey Mouse, first made his full debut on 18 November 1928 in the black and white animated short, Steamboat Willie. It was one of the first cartoons to ever successfully utilise synchronised sound and was so popular that it was talked about more than the feature film it was meant to compliment.
In the film, Mickey is a mischievous deckhand on a riverboat, who plays “Turkey in the Straw” utilizing an animal menagerie as his instruments. The tyrannical Captain Pete is not amused, and Mickey ends up peeling potatoes in the galley.
