Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse!

Mickey Mouse made his debut in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928. This is his 83rd birthday. It is also Minnie’s birthday, as she, too, appears in this seven-minute, black-and-white cartoon for the first time. Walt Disney did all the “voices” (or more accurately, made all the noises, since there isn’t any real dialogue). Film historians consider the cartoon important for its use of synchronized sound, the first, or one of the first, to achieve this technological feat.

Have a look! And Happy Birthday, Mickey and Minnie!
