Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie WDCC Figure

By: Nick

Congratulations on Your 85th, Mickey Mouse!

85 years ago, "Steamboat Willie" premiered at Universal's Colony Theater in New York City. While "Plane Crazy" was the actual 1st Mickey test screened on May 15 1928, and "Gallopin' Gaucho" was completed, but unreleased due to the lack of a distributor, November 18, 1928 is considered the birth of Mickey Mouse.

I thought I'd share this special piece today to celebrate Mickey in his most important theatrical debut.

This is the Walt Disney Classic Collection Charter Member 5th Anniversary sculpture, released in 1997. It was sent as each Charter Member renewed for their fifth consecutive year.

The wheel turns!

The tail is metal, the legs and feet are pewter.

Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse!
