Tiggerific Trivia – Plane Crazy

Plane Crazy

March 17, 1929 — Plane Crazy is re-released, this time with sound!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s #DisneyTrivia post! Today we are taking a look at the re-release of an original Mickey Mouse cartoon — the incredible Plane Crazy!

Did You Know…

That on March 17, 1929, The Disney Mickey Mouse short Plane Crazy – now with sound – premieres at the Mark Strand Theater in New York City? As most of you will already know, Plane Crazy was actually the first short that featured Mickey & Minnie Mouse! However, it was released without sound, and as a result, didn’t do very well. Then, Steamboat Willie was released with sound, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse were “born”, and after that, they added sound to Plane Crazy and released it on this day 85 years ago!

For all of you Disney history buffs, please take a moment and enjoy the YouTube version of the Disney short, in which you’ll find that Mickey wasn’t always as gentlemanly back then as he is now!  Enjoy!

Now please go check out the rest of the great entries from my friends Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Heidi from Heidi’s Head!
