MICKEY MOUSE FUNHOUSE Kicks Off On Disney Junior, To Release On Disney Plus "Sometime Soon"
Disney Junior has begun airing the brand-new series, Mickey Mouse Funhouse, an apparent homage to their 1955 classic, The Mickey Mouse Club.
Disney is revamping an old classic once again. Mickey Mouse Funhouse started airing Friday and sets its sights to hit Disney Plus "sometime soon." The series is breathing new life into its well-established 1955 Walt Disney Productions’ The Mickey Mouse Club.
The show hosted a simple formula, a host in the way of late musician Jimmie Dodd, a cast of kids as the Mouseketeers, several musical numbers and dance segments, and informational tidbits. This stayed with the Disney team enough that they never completely let go of the concept, having revised it three times.
In the 70s, Disney introduced The New Mickey Mouse Club, which then morphed into The All-New Mickey Mouse Club in the late 80s. Finally in 2017 through to 2018, social media channels had Club Mickey Mouse. This isn’t a novel idea or unique idea to revive the series again, however, as Disney Junior was already well into airing something to commemorate the classic in the way of The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which hit the TV channel in 2006. Clubhouse featured singalongs and playalongs to keep the viewer’s attention.
Mickey Mouse Funhouse features Mickey and co as they encounter a magical clubhouse named Funny with the ability to transport them to new worlds of fantastical proportions. The series is yet to launch on Disney Plus, but no doubt will appear on the platform sooner rather than later.
