Today, the Walt Disney Company is celebrating Mickey Mouse’s birthday, who made his debut in the short film “Steamboat Willie” on November 18th, 1928 (which is also available on Disney+).
To mark this date, Disney has released the first two episodes of a brand new animated series, “The Wonderful World Of Mickey Mouse” on Disney+ today around the globe.
The two episodes include:
Mickey and his friends’ plans for a barbeque get sidetracked after a quick trip to the supermarket turns into an odyssey.
Mickey Mouse attempts to wrangle a prized herd across the stunning vistas of the Big Thunder Valley, but Peg-Leg Pete stands in his way.
In “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse,” it’s nothing but fun and excitement for Mickey and his best pals – Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto – as they embark on their greatest adventures yet, navigating the curveballs of a wild and zany world where the magic of Disney makes the impossible possible. Each seven-minute short is filled with laugh-out-loud comedy, modern settings, timeless stories, new music and the unmistakable classic art style of the “Mickey Mouse” shorts. The series will include stories inspired by various lands at Disney parks and cameos by classic Disney heritage characters.
The next two episodes will arrive on Disney+ on Friday, November 27th.
