In celebration of 90 years of Mickey Mouse, we are pleased to present a wonderful black and white version of Minnie Mouse just as she appeared in STEAMBOAT WILLIE.
She is the perfect companion to Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse.
She made of finest Trevira velvet.
Minnie wears her fashionable flower-topped hat, ruffled skirt and timelessly stylish shoes... all made of black and white felt.
In keeping with the black and white production of Mickey Mouse's film debut, Minnie has specifically been designed in black and white
Mickey Mouse made his debut on November 18, 1928 in STEAMBOAT WILLIE at the Colony Theatre in New York, 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.
Each bear is a work of art that is a tribute to the Steiff Company and to the extraordinary personality of its founder Margarette Steiff.
