Beginning tonight at 8 p.m., kids can watch old favorite friends Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Pluto in new animated shorts.
“The beloved Disney icon is getting another surge of fame with the release of brand-new animation aimed at kids 6-14 that will air on Disney Channel. Kicking off Friday, June 28 the roll-out of comedy cartoons will include new shorts featuring Mickey — as well as Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto — and will be both old-fashioned, with retro 2-D animation, and feature a few “contemporary touches” as well….”
“The first Mickey Mouse will air Friday, June 28 at 8:00 p.m. ET; “Yodelberg” will premiere Saturday June 29 at 8. After the premiere weekend, new shorts will continue to roll out on Friday nights starting July 5 on Disney Channel.”
EW has an exclusive preview of a Minnie and Mickey cartoon on their site. (It won’t let me embed the player.)
I used to love Mickey cartoons but my favorites always involved Chip and Dale outwitting Donald Duck. I also like Huey, Dewey and Louis and Scrooge McDuck.
Who were your favorite characters from the old Mickey cartoons? Will your kids tune in to see the new cartoons? Will you be more excited than your kids?
