This cartoon makes me realise how overrated "Steamboat Willie" is., 3 February 2010
Author: Mightyzebra from Scotland

For a great portion of my life I thought that "Steamboat Willie", the Mickey Mouse cartoon made straight after this one, was the first cartoon of our favourite cartoon mouse. However, I discovered this cartoon, "Plane Crazy" and have just watched it on Youtube and read that THIS cartoon actually holds the fame. Why all the fact books say that "Steamboat Willie" is Mickey's debut I have not a clue.

Personally I prefer this cartoon to "Steamboat Willie", as I found it more entertaining, funny and more sweet (near the beginning, towards the end it is not very sweet, but still quite entertaining). Not to say that "Steamboat Willie" pales considerably in comparison, I enjoyed both cartoons very much.

Anyhow, in "Plane Crazy", Mickey Mouse is planning for a plane flight (in those days planes were less than 30 years old and would have probably been particularly exciting in a cartoon). With the help of another animal as an engine, Mickey tries flying the plane that a few other animals have made for him, but unfortunately it does not work very well and it crashes. Downhearted, Mickey attempts to make a new plane, starting with a normal motorcar (it is a cartoon, it is NOT realistic). His girlfriend (obviously Minnie Mouse), gives him a horseshoe for luck before Mickey takes off in his new plane. Will this flight be a success..?

I recommend this cartoon to anyone who likes or is interested in Mickey Mouse and to people who just enjoy watching old cartoons. Enjoy "Plane Crazy"! :-)
