This Show Is Really Getting The Hang Of It

I Don't Like The 7th Episode Of Season 1 Once Again Has Cooked Characters And Also Too Much Dates And The 12th Episode Is The Episode When I Saw Minnie Turning Buff 💪 Which Is Weird And Angers Me And Also The 13th Episode Is When They Go On A Rock Band But This Greedy Crocodile Wants Mickey & Minnie To Sign That Contract But That They Get Tired And Also When Ever The Get Tired Their Eyes Are Creepy.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (7 ):

This series bridges the gap between old and new with classic characters, a retro animation style, and new settings that surprise in fun ways. Mickey and crew play roles that change with each episode, giving the shorts almost a variety-show feel when they're watched one after another. Even so, there's consistency in how the characters bring their own personalities to each role, which is especially enjoyable for fans who've watched them for years.

The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse is designed to be fun, but that happens at the expense of any kind of substantial content. It will delight seasoned Disney fans with homages to other franchise productions in varying degrees of subtlety. Even better, it's in keeping with Disney's tradition of family-geared entertainment, so parents and kids can happily tune in together.
