[Los Angeles, CA] — Jump into Wow this summer with the premiere of an all new series on Disney Junior—"Mickey Mouse Funhouse"— featuring beloved iconic characters starring in brand-new stories for kids and families to enjoy! Livi and I got to enjoy a special sneak peek of "Mickey the Brave" and we are here to give you the scoop!
Disney Junior's "Mickey Mouse Funhouse" introduces, Mickey Mouse, and his friends - Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto - to Funny, an enchanted talking playhouse, who takes the Sensational Six on adventures of all types to unique worlds that inspire the imagination. Funny transports Mickey and the gang to magical lands, such as the Kingdom of Majestica or Crayon World, where they are transformed into characters specific to each setting. Whether portraying old-timey cowboys and cowgirls in Sunny Gulch or mer-people in Underwater Ocean World, Mickey and his pals are eager to embark on these new adventures together.
"Mickey Mouse Funhouse" features stories which demonstrate creative play, encourage wish fulfillment and impart social and emotional lessons about friendship, creativity and ingenuity. Geared to kids ages 2-5 and their families, each episode features two 11-minute stories with a midway dance break separating the two.
The stories were just the right length to keep Livi's attention and she loved the dance break to get all of her wiggles out. She couldn't stop laughing during the sneak peek and when it was all over asked for more. As a mom, I loved how much fun she was having. It sparked her imagination and got her involved. She was so curious, are all dragons bad? In the end she decided, "no mama, not all dragons are bad, sometimes things look different than they really are." That is right my little Livi bean, good life lesson learned!
The new series will have an assortment of children's books from Disney Publishing Worldwide will be available nationwide later this summer; playsets, figures, apparel, plush, home décor and more will be available at shopDisney.com, Disney store and retailers nationwide, and Walt Disney Records will release the digital soundtracks "Disney Junior Music: Mickey Mouse Funhouse Vol. 1" on July 16!
"Mickey Mouse Funhouse" premieres FRIDAY, AUG. 20, with a simulcast on Disney Channel and Disney Junior (8:00 a.m. EDT/PDT). The series will be available in DisneyNOW and will begin streaming on Disney+ shortly thereafter. Disney+ premiere dates will be announced at a later date. This is one series your kids will not want to miss!
