Steamboat Willie by Walt Disney

Most fans of Mickey Mouse know, thanks to its prominent placement at Disneyland and Disneyworld, of the cartoon star’s third film, “Steamboat Willie,” the first animated film to ever successfully link sound and image. This is part of a wall of frames from the 1928 film–348 frames in all–which together make up less than a single minute of the film’s action. The first Mickey Mouse film was “Plane Crazy,” also from 1928.

CNET has a nice article this week showcasing pictures from the early work of Walt Disney.  Pretty neat and interesting.
