Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto are heading to Disney+ for The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse. The new animated shorts series comes from the team behind Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts.
The series will debut on Mickey’s birthday on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, then two new shorts will premiere every Friday starting on November 27. A total of 10 shorts will air this year, followed by 10 more in the summer of 2021.
“In The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, it’s nothing but fun and excitement for Mickey and his best pals – Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto – as they embark on their greatest adventures yet, navigating the curveballs of a wild and zany world where the magic of Disney makes the impossible possible,” Disney’s press release states. “Each seven-minute short is filled with laugh out loud comedy, modern settings, timeless stories, new music and the unmistakable classic art style of the Mickey Mouse shorts. The series will include stories inspired by various lands at Disney parks and cameos by classic Disney heritage characters.”
The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse is produced by Disney Television Animation with artist and director Paul Rudish as the executive producer and supervising director, and Christopher Willis providing the music.
