Hi y'all,

Before you guys go any further, I'm not obsessing about you know what, I just found this article from Jim Hill Media about making long range for Mickey Mouse, but won't include shorts.

http://jimhillmedia.com/editor_in_chief ... x#comments

Although, the Disney spokesperson says that planning to create new classic shorts starring Mickey and friends has been put on hold. I just hope DIsney knows what there doing, becuase sometimes Micikey Mouse Clubhouse is not what we wante.....oops, I didn't again. But what do you guys think?

I won't mind if we don't get new Mickey shorts as long as there is an Epic Mickey 2; the original Epic Mickey is one of the best things Disney has made in years.

Still hasn't been much of the adventurous Mickey coming back aside from the video games in the year and a half since this article. I think they should just embrace Mickey's comic history and start adapting stuff like that be it for that theatrical project or television or direct to video stuff.

I have to point out that this article is from a year and a half ago. God only knows where things have gone at WDAS in the shorts department since then.

This was an older article, but a year and a half later, it's much of the same info we face today. I'm mostly not a fan of how the company has handled the Mouse or what their long term plans are. If anything, I feel they are "playing it safe" by not coming up with new shorts.

The best and only great thing they have done with Mickey in the last few years in the Wii game, "Epic Mickey." I stand by many here when I say they need to do more with that. I'm not just talking another game, but bring that version of the character to tv or even better, the movies. How cool would an "Epic Mickey" film be?

As for "Clubhouse," it is to Mickey what Elmo is to "Sesame Street." It has taken Mickey from Corporate Logo status to 1-4 year old fan icon status. I'm not going to say winning that age group isn't a good thing, but Mickey needs to appeal to the masses, from new born babies to 99 year-olds. Putting more stock into this early childhood show then other avenues isn't the way to do that. Plus, CG Mickey make me want to vomit.

As of this "Have-a-Laugh" thing,w hat an insult! Forget purist for a moment, these shorts are saying that modern Disney Chanel audiences are to restricted by things like ADHD to invest in a more story appropriate 6 to 7 minute cartoon. Plus, they just come off as lazy. Instead of taking the time to craft new stories, even at 3 to 4 minutes, they just hack the death out of shorts that much more creative minds came up with years ago and feed that to the masses. Not cool, and it tarnishes both Mickey and Disney.

That was Runaway Brain right ?

That short was pretty clever. I loved the Mortal Kombat Snow White style game Mickey was playing, and Mickey looking at a old Steamboat Willie photo and saying " Ohh that's old " ! (=

I hated the Mad Doctor short it was based off from so it was shocking for me when I actually ended up enjoying Runaway Brain.

But yes, whatever they did for Brain they should do it again.

Even though not everyone here is a Kingdom Hearts fan, the series has been popular and I've always felt it has helped to change the younger generation's perception of the character somewhat because he's an extremely powerful, heroic character in the series (conversely, I think they've hurt Maleficent's popularity just a little). I have to admit that I never took Mickey, the character, very seriously until the series, tbh.

I know what you mean. It's okay that they're not doing new classic shorts right now, they just need (Yes I'm going to say it, i'm sorry) to make a new hand drawn series of Mickey Mouse and friends. Mickey Mouse is not for preschoolers. He's for everybody. I mean, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is a cute show, but come on Disney! Stop being a pansy. I wrote a letter to Disney about this, but they didn't send me back and they're making me suffer of my anxiety. Why can't Mickey Mouse Clubhouse end their run already? Oh wait, don't tell me, it's because those meddling preschoolers! :evil:
