Can you believe it’s been nearly a century since Mickey Mouse made his debut in “Steamboat Willie?” Time sure does fly when you’re making magic! And a whole new way to celebrate the magic of Disney awaits, with the launch of the Disney100 Decades Collections, a new series that commemorates beloved Disney characters who have captured the hearts and imaginations of us all through the past 100 years. Collections highlighting each decade from Disney’s 100 years will launch on the third Monday of every month on shopDisney and in Disney Parks, starting with the Disney100 Decades 20s Collection which celebrates the icon and cartoon that started it all, Mickey Mouse in “Steamboat Willie.”
Embrace the nostalgia of the 1920s with the perfect accessories. This Limited Release Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie Ear Headband is made with nautical “rope” trim that frames twill ears displaying classic scenes from the “Steamboat Willie” cartoon. Carry movie magic with you wherever you go with the Limited Release Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie Loungefly Mini Backpack that features a front pocket shaped like a film reel with cartoon vignettes unspooling within. And if you’re ready for some park hopping, there’s no better way to complete your look than with the Limited Edition Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie MagicBand+.
Collectors will love the Limited Release Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie Pin as well as this adorable limited release plush set that presents Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse classically styled as they were in their breakout appearance in “Steamboat Willie.”
Climb aboard for some riverboat fun with the Limited Release Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Steamboat Willie Musical Boat, reminiscent of the tin toys so beloved at the time of the film’s premiere in 1928. This charming piece comes complete with figures of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and other classic characters.
Full steam ahead! Check out the Disney100 Decades 20s Collection when it launches on February 20 at 7 a.m. PT on shopDisney, at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. And don’t forget to check back on the third Monday of every month for new launches commemorating each decade from the past 100 years of Disney, including the Disney100 Decades 30s Collection coming in March!
