The first short, Croissant de TriompheDisney's very own mascot Mickey Mouse will soon be starring in a new short-form series of 2D comedy cartoons.
With a style harkening back to the classic Mickey toons of the 1920s and '30s, each short will find Mickey in a different contemporary setting -- Santa Monica, New York, Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, Venice, the Alps and others -- facing silly situations, a quick complication and an escalation of physical and visual gags. The shorts will also feature other Disney favorites like Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto.
"By bringing Mickey's comedic adventures to life with vitality, humor, inventiveness and charm, the entire Disney Television Animation team of artists, animators and directors have worked to capture the essence of what Walt Disney himself created 85 years ago," said Gary Marsh, president and CCO of Disney Channels Worldwide.
Emmy Award-winning artist and director Paul Rudish (Dexter's Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls) is the executive producer and director. Aaron Springer (SpongeBob SquarePants, Gravity Falls) and Clay Morrow (Dexter's Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls) are directors, and Joseph Holt (The Powerpuff Girls) is the art director. The series is produced under the supervision of senior vice presidents Eric Coleman and Lisa Salamone at Walt Disney Television Animation (TVA).
The 19-episode project will debut Friday, June 28, on Disney Channel, Disney.com and WATCH Disney Channel, among other platforms.
This is extremely cute and I love that they are going for unique animation styles and locations.
