During the Disney Channel's last years of being a quality station (and before all this Hannah Montanna nonsense), they started airing the last truly good show featuring Mickey Mouse; Disney's House Of Mouse. HoM was a mass crossover featuring nearly all of the characters from the Disney Animated Canon films (up to 2001's Atlantis). It also sometimes featured some characters from the Silly Symphonies shorts (The Three Little Pigs, mostly) and included cameo appearances from other Disney Channel cartoons characters (like Pepper Ann), the Disney comic books (Ie. Scrooge McDuck), and even some vehicles shown in live-action films (such as Herbie and the Light Cycles from TRON), but those cameos didn't actually happen very often during the show's run.
The concept of the show was that Mickey and co. were now running a nightclub, with entertainment consisted of special guest acts and showing breif cartoon shorts. Meanwhile, Pete, (who is the evil landlord in this), regularly tries to get the club shut down. While the concept sounds odd at first, it's much better than it sounds.
The characters stay true to their original personalities from their respective movies, and can deliever great one-liners (most notably, Hades). You'll also have fun recognising characters in the background and watching the backstage antics from Mickey and co.
The plots for the main show can either be original, creative, or something that's already been done. Meanwhile, the shorts in between the show are amusing, and sometimes, instead of the Mickey MouseWorks shorts, there may also be cartoons from the Walt Disney era (the 30s, 40s, and 50s), instead. However, I have noticed that sometimes, the show tends to repeat certain shorts again in different episodes.
The artwork is decent. The characters look like who they're supposed to be and the colours are good enough to make the show look friendly, but the animation is repetitive and sometimes, some scenes are repeated throughout an episode.
The only minor criticisms I can think of is that it could have added a few more shorts, but I'd think that would overstretch its running time.
Overall, House Of Mouse was a great attempt at bringing the classic Disney characters back, and it did a fine job. Aside from repetitive animation and not enough shorts, it should be a must-see for any Disney fanatics.
