Cartoon Production Information:

While this was produced before Steamboat Willie, it was held from a full release until a soundtrack could be added, making Plane Crazy the third Mickey Mouse cartoon released. However, it was shown as a silent film in May of 1928 in a Hollywood theater, so it was, in fact, the first released Mickey Mouse cartoon, albeit in a silent version. The release date noted for this short is its copyright date. The final, sound version was released in early 1929, probably May 17, 1929.

Notice the appearance of both Mickey and Minnie, particularly how they have no gloves or shoes. Also, Ub Iwerks had established a record while working on this short; the most animation drawings done in one day (around 700).

The cow in this cartoon is not Clarabelle, but a predecessor named Carolyn.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
