  • News Mickey Mouse in All New Animated Shorts on Disney Channel!!

    So I was with my son in his bedroom where the Disney Channel is playing on his TV almost on a regular basis. My jaw dropped and I sat there gaping at the TV for a couple of minutes as a commercial aired for something that is set to air soon on The Disney Channel.....

    Mickey Mouse to Star in New Cartoon Shorts with Classic Comedy, Contemporary Flair « Disney D23

    Mickey Mouse is starring in a set of all new animated shorts with the animation resembling the animation of the early twenties when Mickey first debuted. It still has a contemporary flair to it all while reintroducing that classic style of animation. From what I saw of the commercial, it appears that they even will be very funny. I am very much looking forward to these.

    Here's the quote from the article linked above.
    With the slapstick feel of classic Mickey Mouse, the series of cartoon shorts presents Mickey in a broad range of humorous situations that showcase his pluck and rascality, along with his long-beloved charm and good heartedness. Each cartoon short finds Mickey in a different contemporary setting including Santa Monica, New York, Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, Venice, and the Alps, facing a silly situation, a quick complication, and an escalation of physical and visual gags. The stories also feature genuine heartfelt and heroic moments as Mickey explores and experiences life with his comical partners: Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto.

    Stories in the upcoming cartoon shorts include:



    Mickey longs to visit Minnie atop her mountaintop chalet but quickly realizes that the threat of avalanche has made the trek up the mountain more challenging than usual.

    It's actually not animation from the 20s.... it's highly stylized and very much like cartoons from today. It IS pie-eyed Mickey though so there's that.

    I do like these because they're hand drawn... but... it's so bizarre. I wish they would just bring back Mickey the way we all grew up with. Just keep it going.

      I don't believe I said it was from the 20s, only that it resembled it. But I do agree with you a little on how it looks. When compared to say Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, it almost looks foreign with MMC being much better. (Computer animated, of course.) But it still looks interesting to me. I watched the preview at the link and I even laughed a few times.

        The shorts are really nicely done, but in a retro styled limited animation.

          That's the preview that was available at the link I put in the original post. Same cartoon.

            Maybe I have an excuse to watch the Disney Channel after all these years.

            But I'd still have to suffer through hours upon hours of garbage before seeing the beauty of the new hand drawn Mickey Mouse shorts. Welcome back, old friend...

              I'm all for new Mickey Mouse cartoons, but I think the animation style they are using for this show is rather ugly.

              It looks like they are trying too hard to be hip by making it look similar to the art styles of other cartoons that are popular right now. It looks like something that would be more at home at Cartoon Network. I think it makes the classic characters look ugly and not nearly as charming as they should be. The state of Disney animation right now saddens me greatly.

                I only have seen part of one short, and while I am glad that Mickey is back I agree the animation direction is bizarre. Limited animation is not a place for Disney characters. If Warner Brothers was able to do full animation for a 30 minute episode of Animaniacs back in the 90's; Disney should be able to do 5 minutes of full animation for Mickey today.

                  I just watched the first hald of "No Service" and was about to post about it before I saw this thread...

                  What the he*ll is this!?!? It looks like a cheap Cartoon Network cartoon from the early 2000s. This ain't no Mickey Mouse! The animation is NOT Disney, not their style at all. And Mickey's voice isn't even that great!

                  Ugh... it's stuff like this, Disney getting away from it's classic form, that drives me nuts. It's like the new Tinkerbell movies... what it that all about? Tinkerbell doesn't talk! And the new style of animation just makes it look cheap to me, not endearing the way the classic hand-drawn cartoon animation full of bright color and warmth. And I'm not even into Tinkerbell!
