Aiiii! Kill it with fire!!!



Steamboat Willie was released on this day in 1928.

At least, that’s what the V&A Museum of Childhood tells me. First Disney cartoon with fully synchronized sound, and first cartoon ever to have the soundtrack created after the cartoon.

The cartoon Mickey, I have to admit, was seriously cuter than this stuffed toy produced a few years later. What is it with old toys and seriously nightmare-inducing teeth?

Oh, I passed the stuffed rooster again today. It’s going for £74 and an odd number of cents. Not as eye-watering as some of those toys, but no thanks.
