Mickey Mouse 90th Birthday Limited Edition by Steiff
Walt Disney Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse.
Mickey Mouse made his debut on November 18, 1928, at the Colony Theatre in New York, in Steamboat Willie, Disney's first animated cartoon with synchronized sound.
Walt Disney directed the short film and contributed his own squeaks to the soundtrack, which was backed by a 15-piece band recorded with the Powers Cinephone process.
As a mischievous deckhand on a riverboat, Mickey - to Minnie's delight - creates a musical version of "Turkey in the Straw," utilizing an animal menagerie as his instruments.
The tyrannical Captain Pete is not amused, and Mickey finds himself peeling potatoes in the galley.
In celebration of 90 years of Mickey Mouse, we are pleased to present Steamboat Willie - Mickey Mouse by Steiff.
He is offered as a limited edition of only 1,090 pieces, and is made of finest Trevira velvet.
He wears a chest tag which shows him navigating the ship.
In keeping with the black and white production of Mickey Mouse's debut, this special edition has also been designed in black and white.
His legendary pants with white buttons and matching hat make him a real eye-catcher.
Mickey appears to have jumped right out of the famous Disney cartoon that introduced him to the world!
This special edition is a must-have for fans of both Disney and Steiff!
Mickey wears the iconic gold Steiff 'button-in-ear.'
Mickey is non-jointed to give him that age old design look.
