Boat Builders is an animated short film produced by Walt Disney, distributed by RKO Radio Pictures and released on February 25, 1938. The film was directed by Ben Sharpsteen and animated by Frenchy de Trémaudan, Louie Schmittt, Chuck Couch, Eddie Strickland, Clyde Geronimi, Paul Satterfield, Archie Robin, Don Patterson.[1]


In this short, Mickey Mouse and his friends Donald Duck and Goofy attempt to build a boat (which they name Queen Minnie[1]), which is made from fold-out parts (the instructions simply say "All You Do Is Put It Together" and "Even A Child Can Do It"), though they encounter problems as they go (e.g. Donald paints the rudder which keeps being turned by Mickey, and Goofy idiotically thinks the Figurehead is an actual woman). Their maiden voyage turns out to be their last, as the boat collapses as it sets sail, thanks to Minnie Mouse hitting the champagne bottle to christen the boat just too hard on the boat.
