Steamboat Pico is the first animation featuring Pico. Made in 1928 by Hilmar Birgir Haraldsson with Hiragasy animation.

This animation took two days to complete and it´s inspired by Walt Disney´s Mickey Mouse short called Steamboat Willie -




Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Neat Pico Day flash

This was an awesome idea of recreating the old Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse short into a Pico Day flash starring Pico & Nene and it having both the old Mickey Mouse humor and some Pico style humor as well and though it was a bit shorter than expected it was still a nice watch.

for two day's work

it was good

but it took forever to switch scenes, why? I almost clicked x on the window because i thought it was a spam because the title took forever.

also old stlye animations are great because they have lots of animation, this....not so much.

good for 2 days though.

Good idea, not so great execution

I like the concept. The animation was fairly good too. As were length, story. But the fact you didn't change the audio whatsoever from the original is pretty bad. Maybe keep the score, and just replace some of the sound effects to keep that olde time feel. A more refined version coming out later would be awesome.

It was alright.

Steamboat Willy was animated by a little under-appreciated GENIUS animator named Ub Iwerks. What made the original Steamboat Willy so monumental, though, was it was the first film, let alone animation, to ever implement sound effects with the musical score.

By no means am I comparing this to it apart from the fact that it's a parody; in fact I loved Pico's overreaction to Nene...but I'm sharing the bit of trivia because, ironically, the LACK of additional sound effects hurt the flash.

It wouldn't have been the hardest thing in the world to distort the sounds of sub-machine guns, rocket launch, and explosion on it's own. Without the additional sound effects, the additional animation doesn't sync properly with the existing sound-track, weakening it's effect.

It also could have been longer, but for TWO DAYS of work, this isn't all that bad. I was still entertained, and I think the premise of an oldschool, post-Great Depression Pico should be built upon...I mean, if you really took a trip back in time and saw how Mickey behaved when Iwerks was at the helm, he was kind of an adventurous asshole...sort of like Pico! lol

Voted 5. Happy Pico Day!
