Mickey Mouse’s ‘Steamboat Willie’ Version Will Soon Enter the Public Domain

“Steamboat Willie” Mickey

Soon in the public domain…

100% chance of being ruined

Mickey Mouse enters the public domain for the first time – well, a version of him anyway – and just as Winnie the Pooh has been desecrated… MM will certainly follow suit as well.

Disney is losing its copyright to the original iteration of its treasured cartoon character – more OG Minnie – which was first depicted in 1928’s “Steamboat Willie”…directed by none other than Walt himself. Starting January 1, they will be available to almost everyone.

This was the first time Mickey appeared on screen, and this black and white form of Mickey served as an archetype for every other modern Mickey we’ve seen since.

The Mouse House has had tight control over the rights to old Mickey for years now — and it even lobbied Congress to extend its exclusive hold a little longer in 2004… something lawmakers had granted to the time. But their time is now over, at 95 years old.

The original version of Winnie the Pooh (from the storybook) was also released to the public a few years ago…and we saw what happened to the beloved intellectual property afterward.

There was the famous slasher horror “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey,” which was released – in which the old bear was reimagined as a psychopathic killer – and other twisted versions of the story as well… and something tells us that Mickey could be next.

Funny enough, the filmmakers who made “Blood and Honey” said they wouldn’t touch Mickey and make him evil – but you have to imagine someone else would, and probably as soon as possible.

The more familiar versions of Mickey that we all know are safe for a little longer – but all these black and white versions are about to be unleashed on the masses. Buckle up, y’all.
