In honor of Mickey’s birthday today, we are going to celebrate all day long.
Mickey Mouse has been very important to both of us, especially in the last year. He was the greatest boss we could ever ask for.
To start the day off right, I thought it would only be fair to share with you how Mickey got his claim to fame.
Steamboat Willie, starring Mickey Mouse, was the first cartoon ever to have synchronized sound in it. It was a major breaking point in the animation industry.
I have added the original Steamboat Willie cartoon for you all to watch. I personally love the “Steamboat Willie” Mickey Mouse. He is my favorite, aside from Sorcerer Mickey, of course!
