Ok but not good at all

This show just is NOT GOOD. There is kissing pretty often and mild flirting between Mickey and Minnie and Donald and Daisy. It is often and odd at times. There is a bit of consumerism as well. The role models and messages take too much of the show and it teaches good messages, but over and over. The antics the characters get into are either weird or reused. My children who are 2 and 3 years old both do not like the show due to the characters and their designs.

Horrible

This show is ridiculously dull. Goofy is so annoying and makes up dumb, nonsensical words. Whiny, annoying and very little positive messages. Not very educational as when they needed to fix something to do with a train, a hot dog was a mousekatool and the answer was "chew chew" because that's what a train says. As someone else said, can be quite stereotypical, girls like pink things, bows and shoes. etc. Wish there was a better show for kids with Mickey in it as my kid is a huge fan.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (42 ):
Kids say (71 ):

The series uses a can't-miss recipe: Take Disney's most beloved characters and have them talk directly to viewers and engage them in activities. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse mixes vibrant colors and music with a fanciful shape-shifting clubhouse, a problem to solve, elements of time-tested fairy tales, and gadgets. It's a blend that's sure to hook kids.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse keeps viewers' brains engaged almost continually -- there's always something to count, find, identify, or compare. Mickey asks questions, acknowledges viewers' answers, cheers them on, and gives kudos for a job well done. While the 3D animation might look primitive to today's viewers, it's similar enough in style to other, more recent preschool hits like CoComelon. Mickey and his pals make each journey engaging enough that preschoolers will forget they're actually working their brain.
