A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this series is basically a showcase for plugging Disney characters, Disney movies, Disney theme parks, and Disney everything. Although it's occasionally clever, the show's real purpose -- promoting all things Disney -– is totally transparent.

What's the story?
HOUSE OF MOUSE is "the tooniest place on Earth," where every character from every Disney product ever made hangs out to watch ... Disney cartoons. A vague storyline connects the segments surrounding the cartoons, but the plots become simply more opportunities for Disney promotions. In a story about Donald and Daisy Duck going on a somewhat out-of-control date, for example, they're plunging down a waterfall when they suddenly see Goofy holding a sign that reads "Photos $10." Sound familiar?
Is it any good?
Fans of Mickey and Donald will probably enjoy the attempts at in-jokes and self-referential humor, but overall the show falls flat. The last half of one episode was an extended -- very extended -- flatulence joke, featuring Pumba from The Lion King. Sometimes less truly is more.
