This show is comprised of new animated shorts featuring the classic Disney characters: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck, and Goofy. A great effort was made to capture the classic Disney look and feel, using basic colors and the original sound effects.
Did You Know?
Despite the fact that most of the shorts from this series were later shown on its spin-off House of Mouse
(2001), there were shorts from Mickey Mouse Works
(1999) that were never shown in the spin-off, which were "Minnie Takes Care of Pluto" and the "Pluto Gets the Paper" short, "Vending Machine". These two shorts were only aired once on ABC, and were later banned from reruns on The Disney Channel and Toon Disney for their dark and violent nature, and were never included in any episodes of House of Mouse
(2001). However, the shorts can still be seen on international airings. See more
At the end of the opening sequence in every episode, Donald Duck attempts to plaster his own name over the series' title which results backfires on him. Donald's accidents vary between episodes. See more
In Finland, due to Donald Duck's popularity, the show was renamed "Akun Tehdas" ("Donald's Factory"). Likely because of that, the opening gag where Donald tries in some way to steal the spotlight was cut accordingly. See more
