Mens Steamboat Willie Boat Raglan Shirt
The visionary that he was, Walt Disney could feel the winds of change coming when he first saw Al Jolson’s 1927 movie The Jazz Singer. It was one of the very first “talkie” movies, synchronizing singing and talking with the action, and it took America by storm. Disney saw that the next big thing in film had arrived, so he set out to match suit. $5,000 and hundreds of pencils later, he and his partner Ub Iwerks created the 1928 short Steamboat Willie, the very first talkie cartoon, and it changed animation forever.Steamboat Willie was also notably the first appearance of Mickey Mouse, who in 2010 would go on to star in his own Wii exclusive video game Epic Mickey. Mickey has also appeared nearly everywhere else, too.
If you’re a fan of Mickey in particular, cartoons in general, or just attractive baseball shirts, our Steamboat Willie shirt will make a great addition to your wardrobe. With a faded graphic to give it that worn, vintage vibe, you’ll find life will be smooth sailing as people are attracted to that wonderful classic image from American history.
