César Lemoine Valarino's curator insight, March 15, 8:58 PM

In this article, we learn about the first cartoon to ever have sound effects in it. We're talking about Mickey's debut from Disney's studios in "Steamboat Willie".

Disney was definitely a man who changed the way we watch movies and TV now a days.
