mickey and friends 10 classic shorts volume 2

My kids grew up watching the animated show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the Disney Channel. Hot Diggity Dog! They loved the show's Hot Dog song and dance segments as preschoolers so much that I still catch them now they are teenagers being Goofy dancing around singing the song. Talking to them the other day, I realized that beyond knowing about Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto and Goofy from that cable tv show, they weren't familiar with earlier Disney works that crafted these characters into the beloved pop cult icons we know today. So, I was geeked to learn that as part of Disney's 100 Year Celebration, many of the original short films that introduces these characters to the world are being re-released on Digital and Blu-ray.

Arriving April 4 on Digital and June 27th on Blu-ray/DVD is MICKEY & FRIENDS 10 CLASSIC SHORTS: VOLUME 2. This home entertainment video release includes a brand-new animated interstitials introduction featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald, Goofy and Pluto, as the beloved Disney characters gather together to watch a slideshow on some of their hilarious past adventures. Then viewers can enjoy the hijinks of Mickey and his friends in ten classic animated shorts.
