DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Steamboat Willie was the first cartoon with synchronized sound? Released back in 1928, this is one of the first from the old cartoons to move on from the era of silent films. Additionally, Steamboat Willie is the first cartoon with a post-produced soundtrack. Though this was the third film that featured Mickey Mouse, this animation is considered to be Mickey and Minnie Mouse's official debut. It is because Steamboat Willie was the first to be released. And after it became an instant hit, Disney re-released the first two Mickey movies with sound in theaters.

Walt Disney holds the record for having the most Academy Awards earned by an individual. As a producer of films, he has won 22 out of his 59 nominations. He also has two Golden Globe Special Achievements Awards, as well as an Emmy Award, among others. Some of the best cartoons of all time were also produced from his studio. Among which include Beauty and the Beast, which was the first full-length animated movie to receive a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1992. And now since we can watch Disney movies online, we can also stream even old cartoon shows! What is your favorite Disney movie?

    "The video adaptation in this animated series is one of special interest to the fans of Superman and DC comics. The main issue with this series is that the media used to play this series seems to be seriously flawed according to consumer feedback, with many negative reviews complaining about the media not working properly with many bug issues to taint the experience."

    "Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a clunker of a cartoon series. Rendering the Star Wars universe in cartoon format only serves to highlight how truly ridiculous the franchise is. The Clone Wars is neither visually appealing nor thematically interesting."

    "This Justice League title kind of feels like a one-off affair, but it is generally entertaining. It just kind of lacks the star power of a lot of similar superhero movies. Bigger fans of these characters and franchises will probably enjoy it, but the casual fan might prefer some of the more mainstream superhero blockbusters."
