JACKSONVILLE, Fla — If you're hesitant about going to the Disney Parks in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can get your Disney kick right at home. On Wednesday, Disney+ will be airing a brand new Mickey Mouse animated series, just in time for his 92nd birthday!
"The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse," features the Fab Six — Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Daisy and Pluto — in a series of seven-minute, comedy-filled cartoons produced by Paul Rudish.
The series will debut on Nov. 18, which also coincides with Mickey and Minnie's 92nd birthday. Starting on Nov. 27, the streaming service will release two short seven-minute clips every Friday. Ten more are scheduled for next summer.
The Mickey Mouse cartoons, which takes on a new, contemporary art design that pays tribute to the mouse's classic 1928 appearance, first aired on the Disney Channel in 2013. It consisted of five seasons, or 96 episodes, and won a series of awards, including several Emmy awards.
The new cartoons also inspired Mickey and Minnie's first-ever rollercoaster attraction, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, which is now open at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando.
