Loungefly pays homage to early Mickey with this fabulous mini backpack which we just know is going to be a real fan favorite. The design features archive imagery from Steamboat Willie, the hand-drawn short that featured the debut of Mickey and Minnie Mouse and we just love that the monochrome styling stays true to the look of the original black and white film.
Just like the movie that inspired it, this is a timeless classic and an absolute must for any Loungefly collector.
Who has never been thrilled, or even addicted, to a Disney animation, right? And when the subject is Mickey Mouse, it is hard for anyone not to know him. After all, like it or not, this little mouse has become the symbol of Disney World.
His film debut came with the short film “Steamboat Willie,” the first animated cartoon with sound, on November 18, 1928. In the short film that marks his birth more than 90 years ago, Mickey appeared aboard a steamship commanded by an enemy. One wonders who it was… Pete!
It was the beginning of a success story. Mickey not only gained the status of an American pop culture icon, but he also became, and still is, Disney’s marketing image.
