Plane Crazy is a 1928 animated cartoon with the first appearances of Mickey Mouse Minnie Mouse and Clarabelle Cow.


Mickey was apparently trying to fly an airplane to imitate Charles Lindbergh. After building his own airplane he did a fight simulation to ensure that the plane is safe for flight but the flight faileddestroying the plane. Using a tractor and remains of his plane to create another plane he asks Minnie to join him for its first flight after she presents him with a horseshoe for good luck. They take an out-of-control flight with exaggerated impossible situations. An un-anthropomorphic cow briefly rides the aircraft. This is Clarabelle Cow making her first appearance though the cow is actually an early more cowlike predecessor of Clarabelle named Carolyn. Once Mickey regains control of the plane he repeatedly tries to kiss Minnie. When he refuses he uses force: he breaks her concentration and terrifies her by throwing her out of the airplane catching her with the airplane and uses this to kiss her. Minnie then parachute out of the plane using her bloomers. While distracted by her Mickey loses control of the plane and eventually crashes into a tree. Minnie then lands and Mickey laughs at her. Minnie then storms off rebuffing him. Mickey then angrily throws the good luck horseshoe given to him by Minnie and it boomerangs around a tree hitting him and ringing around his neck.
