Mickey Mouse is back in the house!
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.
In one Mickey Mouse short, “Yodelberg,” 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. Check out an EW exclusive clip of that short below:
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.
