HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Mickey and Minnie Mouse make their first appearance in "Steamboat Willie."

"Steamboat Willie" wasn't the first cartoon featuring Mickey Mouse; it was actually the third, but it was the first one to get a theatrical release. It's also the first cartoon to use synchronized sound.

Disney traditionally celebrates November 18th as Mickey Mouse's birthday.
