Combining the rich heritage of Disney’s beloved classic characters with state-of-the-art CG animation, “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” introduces a whole new generation of preschoolers to Mickey and his pals Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Pluto and Daisy. The series’ curriculum is designed to introduce problem solving and early mathematics skills (sequencing, counting, classifying, sorting, complex patterns, spatial relations, size and distance comparisons, addition, subtraction, weights and balances) in a fun way through contemporary, interactive storytelling. A global hit since its premiere in 2006, “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” is seen in over 166 countries in 35 different languages and has consistently been a top 10 series with preschoolers in the U.S.
Based on a popular episode of Disney Junior’s hit Emmy-nominated series “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” the short-form series “Minnie’s Bow-Toons” follows the adventures of Minnie Mouse and her good friend Daisy Duck as they run Minnie’s Bow-Tique, a specialty shop stocked only with bows and bowties. No matter what the occasion, Minnie has a bow (or bow-tie) for every situation.
Both “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and “Minnie’s Bow-Toons” are produced by Disney Television Animation and carry a TV-Y parental guideline.
