Las Vegas is founded, Mickey Mouse makes his screen debut, the Soviets begin withdrawing from Afghanistan, and a 16-year-old sailor completes her solo around-the-world journey, all on this day.
1928: Mickey Mouse makes his premiere in a test screening of the silent animated short "Plane Crazy." The short failed to pick up a distributor, but Mickey became a success later in the year when The Walt Disney Studio released his first sound cartoon, "Steamboat Willie." Following this, "Plane Crazy" was released as a sound cartoon on March 17, 1929.
