Steamboat Willie (1928)

Released on November 18, 1928, it was the first cartoon (Disney or otherwise) to feature synchronized sound.

Mickey Mouse is a deckhand on a riverboat, where Peg-Leg Pete is the Captain. Mickey plays "Turkey in the Straw" using animals in place of instruments. Captain Pete catches him playing, and puts Mickey to work peeling potatoes.
