Plane Crazy is a short film from 1928 that was the first ever to feature the iconic characters. The plot follows Mickey as he attempts to build a plane so he can take Minnie for a ride.
However, his inexperience leads to a series of disastrous mishaps, much to Minnie’s consternation.
Ultimately, they finally manage to get airborne, but their joy is short-lived when they crash into a tree.
Despite its primitive animation and simplistic story, Plane Crazy is an essential piece of history that helped to establish Mickey and Minnie as two of the most beloved characters in the world.
On May 15, 1928, a movie theater in Los Angeles showed the animated film Plane Crazy to a small audience. A 6-minute silent black and white film showing Mickey trying to build an airplane.
The inspiration was Charles Lindbergh’s historic flight across the Atlantic Ocean from Paris to New York the year before.
Minnie, who also appeared for the first time in the short, agrees to fly with Mickey as he tries to impress her.
Directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, the animation only ran for a single day. It was an experiment: Walt sat in the back of the theater and observed the reaction of the spectators.
He realized that it was almost unanimous: everyone loved the black mouse.
And so, without almost anyone noticing, the greatest icon of the modern cultural industry was born.
