* BlackComedyAnimalCruelty: This is the most famous example in the early Mickey Mouse cartoons; it includes a sow played like an accordion, a cat having its tail pulled and then swung around, and a goose squeezed like a bagpipe.

''Steamboat Willie'' is a black-and-white WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse short released on November 18, 1928, and is the cartoon that kicked off what we have come to know as UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation. It is notable not for being the first Mickey Mouse cartoon (that honor goes to ''WesternAnimation/PlaneCrazy''), nor for being the first sound cartoon[[note]] [[Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer Fleischer Studios]]' 1924 ''Song Car-Tune'' "Mother, Mother Pin A Rose On Me" holds that honor, and [[TerryToons Paul Terry's]] 1928 short "Dinnertime" was released just a month before Willie hit the theaters[[/note]], but for being the first cartoon with a completely post-produced soundtrack of music, dialogue, and sound effects. Namely, it was the first cartoon to get it right, bringing UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeOfAnimation to an end.

-->-- '''ShamusCulhane''' on why "Steamboat Willie" was such an important film for animation

''Steamboat Willie'' was a black-and-white WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse short released on November 18, 1928, being the short that kicked off what we have come to know as UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation. It is notable, not for being the first Mickey Mouse cartoon (that honor goes to ''WesternAnimation/PlaneCrazy'') and, contrary to popular belief, not for being the first sound cartoon[[note]][[Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer Fleischer Studios]]' 1924 ''Song Car-Tune'' "Mother, Mother Pin A Rose On Me" holds that honor, and [[TerryToons Paul Terry's]] 1928 short "Dinnertime" was released just a month before Willie hit the theaters[[/note]], but for being the first cartoon with a completely post-produced soundtrack of music, dialogue, and sound effects.

The short was revolutionary for its time, and its copyright status in the US is still up in the air; in 1998, Disney successfully lobbied the U.S. Congress to extend its copyright to 2023 (which is part of the reason that the Copyright Term Extension Act is occasionally known as the "Mickey Mouse Protection Act") though by the original law it should have fallen into {{public domain|Animation}} years ago. It may in fact already be in the public domain due to errors in the original copyright formulation, but [[FrivolousLawsuit don't let Disney hear you mention that]]. In several other countries, including Canada and Russia, the short has been in the public domain for several years.
