Why Steamboat Willie?
Why is Steamboat Willie such a popular pick among Disney fans? Steamboat Willie is a 1928 animated short film directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, featuring the first appearance of the ever-so-popular Mickey Mouse. Not only was it Mickey’s first big reveal, but it is widely considered to be one of the most significant cartoons in animation history, as it was the first cartoon to synchronize sound and image successfully.

The plot of the short film follows Mickey Mouse, who is a deckhand on a steamboat. Throughout the film, Mickey faces a series of comedic mishaps, from dealing with a stubborn goat to attempting to steer the boat through a storm. The classic song “Turkey in the Straw” is easy to hum along to, with many visual gags and humorous moments.
Steamboat Willie was a huge success upon its release and helped launch the Disney company into a major animation studio… as well as debuting one of the most iconic entertainment characters of all time, Mickey, of course. Today, the film is considered a classic of animation and is widely recognized as one of the most important cartoons ever made.
