Today’s photo challenge on Instagram asked you guys, “Can you name Mickey Mouse’s movie debut?”

The answer is “Steamboat Wililie!”

Mickey Mouse made his debut in the short animated film, “Steamboat Willie” in 1928. Steamboat Willie was one of the very first animated films with synchronized sound, directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. It was also the first animated movie to feature a fully post-produced soundtrack.

Mickey was introduced as a mischievous mouse, but over the years gained so much popularity that he became an icon for the everyman!
