This is comprised of new animated shorts featuring the classic Disney characters: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck, and Goofy. A great effort is made to capture the classic ... See full summary »
Aladdin, the clever hero of Agrabah, continues his adventures with the help of his fiancee Princess Jasmine, his pet monkey Abu, Magic Carpet, Iago the greedy parrot, and of course his best friend the semi-cosmic Genie.
Mickey's rival in this show is Mortimer Mouse taken from the animated short Mickey's Rival (1936). When Walt Disney first created Mickey, he intended for the name to be Mortimer, but his wife convinced him to change it to Mickey. See more »
Hey Timon, I should tell you I got a rumbly in my tumbly.
[Pumbaa starts to rumble]
He's gonna blow!

Let's fly Dumbo!
Ah-choo! I can't smell anything anyway.

I think it's a very funny show bringing back all the classic characters, making them the crew of a lively nightclub, and making all the memorable new Disney stars the audience.
Mickey hosts the show, Minnie keeps everything backstage running smoothly, Pluto... I forget his job... Donald is the greeter, Daisy seats people, Goofy is headwaiter, Gus is the chef, Max (one of the newer characters, but still...) parks cars, Clarabell works with "word on the street", and Horace runs the cartoons.
Before the "House of Mouse", I never heard of characters like Clarabell and Horace. And when I heard that they were around before (though the other comments posted here) I was quite surprised. And I agree that it was great of Disney Studios to bring them back.
And, of course, let's not forget the new member of the Disney family, the spunky, enthusiastic talking microphone, Mike! Something I really wish is that they'd give this guy his own big break.
I love hearing lines like "Hit it, Horace!" and find it hilarious when Horace pulls out a sludge hammer or a boxing glove extender thing to, literally, well, HIT IT!
The things I don't like about the show aren't the crew's fault. Those characters I don't like are just who they are to make the show interesting. I don't like Mortimer Mouse at all. He's a jerk and a snobbish pig! And, Pete, lay off trying to shut down the House of Mouse! Though, I do wish PJ would make an appearance some time.
Well, over all, I give this show 2 ears up! (Pardon the quote from the episode "The Mouse who came to Dinner")
