With the continuing demand for Mickey Mouse gifts, cartoons and a whole range of Mickey related paraphernalia, it’s always good to take a look back at how this phenomenon actually started. Today, we’re going to take a look at one of the earliest cartoons, Steamboat Willie. Released in 1928 it was the 3rd Mickey Mouse Cartoon and the first to feature synchronized sound.
This particular cartoon was premiered in New York and was an instant hit. Walt Disney and Ub I werks wrote and directed the film, imitating Steamboat Bill Jr. The music in this particular film was given by Wilfred Jackson who was an animator of Disney.
The popular songs consisted of “Steamboat Bill and “Turkey in the Straw”. There were number of controversies that were related with the copyright of the film, although it is founded by the recent inventions that the issues that are related to the original copyright may keep the Steamboat Willie in the category of public domain.
The censors started to notify several things during the past days. The first thing that was founded by the censor was the pulling of the tail of a cat by Mickey Mouse. There were many other things that came into their notice among which one was related to the bagpipes. They played an important role in the DVD’s of Walt Disney.
It was also released with the name of the DVD title named as Vintage Mickey. It was a collection of Black and White Mickey Mouse cartoons. As there are varieties of Mickey Mouse based toys and games invented these days, it was really hard to believe that Mickey would be seen in a video game.
This video about which we are talking about was released for the Super Nintendo games but they were also seen in the Sony play station and the Sega CD. In a game of Disney, known as Kingdom Hearts II inspired by Steamboat Willie had a theme which was based on the period of world feature.
