Mickey Mouse is back in the medium that started it all. Today, Walt Disney Animation has debuted the first of 19 planned cartoon shorts that feature classic Disney characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Goofy and more. Check out the first new short, “Croissant de Triomphe,” via the player below!
The shorts arrive from Emmy Award-winning artist and director Paul Rudish (“Dexters Laboratory,” “The Powerpuff Girls”). Future entries are said to include Yodelberg wherein Mickey, longing to visit Minnie atop her mountaintop chalet, quickly realizes that the threat of avalanche has made the trek up the mountain more challenging than usual. Then, in No Service, Mickey and Donald try to buy lunch from a beachside snack shack but are unceremoniously turned down because of the classic No shirt, no shoes, no service admonition (of course, Mickey doesnt wear a shirt and Donald doesnt wear shoes!).
