If you ask anyone what the most popular series of animated movies, chances are that person will say Disney Series. The series are known world wide as one of the animated classics series ever made. So when we had digital cable with Toon Disney, I gave it a shot. Now as much as I love Mickey Mouse, I have to admit after seeing a few episodes of the show, it could have been done so much better than this. The show begins with a microphone announcing Mickey Mose appearing. Both of them do a good job playing the parts and the running in the begging is actually pretty good, it won't be laugh out loud funny, but series would also include a special guest appearance like Bambi, Alice, Jimity Cricket, etc. and they weren't too bad either. We cut to Goofy's side of the story, and this is where the show ultimately falls apart. The story in the Goofy episodes is that Goofy must be responsible for his own clumsiest, Goofy must deal with being disastrous later on. The show has all your favorite characters from the movies, Mushu, Baloo, Big Bad Wolf, etc. The voice acting is is filled with a huge cast some will even fall apart, (example) Big Bad Wolf sounds like a nasally 5 year old with a very bad New York accent. I think they were going for how annoying BBW was in the classic (I'll have to watch that pigs thing), so I will give credit for that, but they could have found another voice actor. For some reason in the show, Baloo appeared as a King Dedede spoof and has a similar role to Lok from that bland CGI toon (wich shall rename nameless). First of all, why is the voice work dreary? Second, why is Balook Lok/Dedede? Thirdly, where is Gyro Gearloose? He should have been in this show to. The animation is very poorly done. It looks very choppy, sometimes lips will move when they shouldn't, and the animation quality of the show looks very poor. The voice acting is no better since there are some actors that would in CatDog, Chalkzone and even Squirrle Boy. The humor is nowhere as good, its all childish humor and it can make you groan. The stories themselves are parodies of franchise like Paaper Mario, Clerks, Homestar Runner, and so on. Now I love parodies and satires, but when they are written so poorly and the humor is just bad, it really ruins it. I was really disappointed in this show, it could have been done so much better than this. The voices and animation are terrible, the parodies are weak, the humor is bad, it just wasn't that great. Sorry all of you fans of the show, I gave it a chance but it just falls short on almost all levels. Just watch the classics only.
