What's the story?

MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE, a new addition to the 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?

QUALITY
 

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, the series 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.

Families can talk about...

  • Did Mickey and his friends ask you to help them? What did they ask you to do? Did you play any games? What did the games involve?

  • How did Mickey and his friends end up solving their problem? What did you learn during this episode?

MMCH is a great show that teaches kids counting, colors, shape recognition and cooperation among other things. The shows interact with the viewers. It hasn't any violence, sex, or any innuendos. Great show. Disney does a great job with shows like these.

Perfect for 1+

Totally love it! My son is 13 months and LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! Everytime it comes on you cannot be holding him or he will throw a fit and run into the other room to watch! He dances to the theme and the 'hot dog' dance ! He talks to Mickey and Friends and goes "totototo" for toodles! It's adorable!
