Mickey is piloting a steamboat when Captain Pete comes to the bridge and throws him off. They stop to pick up cargo. Minnie just misses the boat and Mickey uses the crane to grab her. She drops her sheet music of "Turkey in the Straw" and a goat eats it. With help from Mickey, she cranks the goat's tail, and it plays the tune. Mickey accompanies on percussion and by torturing various animals, until Pete comes down and puts a stop to it, putting Mickey to work peeling potatoes. While this is the first sound Mickey Mouse, there's no dialog. Written by

Steamboat Willie is a ,asterpiece, one of the greatest animated short film ever to be made in the history of film, and not only that, but it is also one of the best things that Walt Disney ever made!
I can see why this would be considered a masterpiece of animation, because it certainly is a masterpiece, one of the greatest cartoon shorts ever made! I can also see why this was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Well, it ought to be preserved, it truly is a remarkable piece not just animation history, but film history as well! This gets yet another perfect rating of ten stars out of ten, it gets that rating for being a splendid, perfect, and unforgettable animated short film!
