Reviews of “Steamboat Willie” (1928) and related work

“Steamboat Willie” (1928Moving picture, 8 minutes)

The first cartoon made with synchronized sound. Ecocritically and historically interesting. Otherwise dull. Its making brought the tiny industry of cartoons through the {{review|The Jazz Singer (1927)|label=Jazz Singer}} check valve. This ended the possibility of another {{review|Symphonie Diagonale (1924)}}.

“Mickey’s Trailer” (1938Moving picture, 8 minutes)

The centerpiece shots of the caravan careening down hill looks like an extension of this motif in {{review|I Wanna Play House (1936)}}.
