Steamboat Willie LEGO Set

Last year, Mickey Mouse celebrated his 90th anniversary. The cartoon rodent debuted in the black and white animated short Steamboat Willie all the way back in November of 1928, along with his lifelong companion Minnie Mouse. The short would kick off a legacy that still stands strong today as Disney has become a powerhouse not only in animation, but entertainment at large.

Now fans can celebrate the debut of Mickey Mouse with an official new LEGO set that brings Steamboat Willie to life in building brick form. The new set, which originated at the LEGO Ideas website, brings to life the S.S. Willie steamboat that Mickey Mouse steers in the animated short. And just like the animated short itself, this set and the accompanying Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse minifigures are in black and white. Check out the full Steamboat Willie LEGO set below.
