High-flying Mickey Cartoon!, 9 June 2015
Author: OllieSuave-007 from California, USA

This is technically the first Mickey Mouse cartoon, having released a few months before Steamboat Willie. Here, Mickey builds a plane and takes Minnie Mouse (also her first appearance) for a joyride. But, the high-flying journey doesn't go near as Mickey plans as the plane sores to unbelievable obstacles and heights, leaving the two to fend for themselves.

Ub Iwerks did a great job animating the cartoon. While it does appear dated by today's standards, the cartoon does represent classic animation and true talent - none of these CGI stuff that we see in today's animated features.

Not a whole lot to the story, but it's an adventurous little tale nonetheless and is one of the more exciting black and white cartoon shorts from Walt Disney. It's a fine way to start off Mickey Mouse and his many adventures in years to come.

Grade B+
