Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

My son is 2 and is so in love with this show. My only problem is with Donald. He can be really bratty at times. He's rude to Goofy and pouts a lot. When he... Continue reading

Perfect Disney show for little kids!

This show teaches kids what they would need in different situations.

What's the story?

MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE, a long-time favorite in Disney Channel's preschooler-oriented Playhouse Disney programming block, brings together six classic characters -- Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto -- for a lively half-hour of learning, music, and fun. Brought to life with eye-popping 3-D computer-generated animation, Mickey and his pals invite young viewers to interact and play games with them as they solve stimulating challenges built around a particular theme.

Is it any good?

The series' unique mix of elements is a can't-miss recipe: Take some of the world's most beloved animated characters, and have them talk directly to viewers and engage them in activities. Throw in a magical, fanciful, shape-shifting clubhouse; an exciting adventure; some elements of time-tested fairy tales; and a few modern, computer-generated gadgets to keep the show current. Add a dash of CGI, with its vibrant colors and characters that look as if they might jump off the screen at any moment, and kids are sure to be hooked.

What's really great is that, in addition to the dazzling visuals, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse keeps the viewer's brain engaged almost continually -- there's always something to count, find, identify, or compare. Mickey is constantly in your face (in a good way) -- asking questions, acknowledging viewers' answers, cheering them on, and giving kudos for a job well done. He and his pals make each journey so much fun that preschoolers will forget they're actually working their brain.
