Excellent update of tired characters

I remember growing up in the 80's thinking Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters were too maudlin and unnecessarily 'safe' especially compared to the Looney Tune characters. This update of the Disney classic characters adds a lot of modern humor, manic pacing, silliness, clever references and exaggerated animation (like Ren and Stimpy) which makes it fun. I could see how some people might find the style offends their sensibilities but I don't believe it's too much or cringe inducing while still managing to be mostly family oriented. The messaging is about the value of good behavior over bad behavior and the importance of family/friends without being overly saccharine.
