Oh no! He's going back to be goody two shoes again? I thought they learn their lesson! Does this mean they're ending Paul Rudish's Mickey Mouse shorts?!:(

As much I would love to make a video reaction, but I'll just pass.
That doesn't really mean much.. especially that the new Mickey Mouse shorts already has a third season on the way. It's probably just an alternate way for more addition Disney Junior stuff.

Whoa, dude, overreact much? Why would a new Disney Junior series starring Mickey mean that the Paul Rudish shorts are coming to an end? The Clubhouse Mickey shows and the shorts aren't aimed at the same audience, so there's no reason they can't or shouldn't co-exist. Both are popular with their respective fanbases, so I don't see the 2 as mutually exclusive.

The fact of the matter is that is that Mickey Mouse can be or do whatever the smeg his creators want him to be or do, even multiple identities at once, 'cause he's a fictional character and Disney's property.

No. No one ever said that.

Seriously, dude. There's no reason to freak out every time Disney does something new with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse version of the character(s). The show is popular with it's fan base, so naturally Disney is going to milk that cash cow for all that it's worth.

I suddenly feel like I'm having flashbacks of my very, very short (and unpleasant mostly due to my posting style back then) stay at dvdizzy.

Anyway, regarding the upcoming show, the animation seems more fluid and fast-moving than MMC, so that's good. And it certainly doesn't mean the Rudish shorts will get cancelled, there can never be too many Mickey projects at Disney, the character's a cash cow.

It's funny to think that wasn't exactly the case in the early days of Disney Television Animation. Eisner's leadership was very sensitive over depictions of flagship characters like Mickey, and felt they shouldn't be overexposed on a weekly TV show.

All right, but they better not make it like Clubhouse 2.0, because that was a disgrace IMO.
The show was a disgrace to who or what, precisely? And if it does turn out to be like MMC, what do you plan to do, exactly?

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is/was a show made for toddlers and preschoolers, and they evidently love(d) it, otherwise it wouldn't have lasted as long as it has and Disney wouldn't be making another series in that vein. I've been reading some of the latest posts here and in other recent Disney threads, and I have to say, I think it's really pretty darn silly, all the bile that's being spewed over Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Adults complaining about preschool shows like MMC is like vegans complaining about a new steakhouse: of course people our age aren't going to like it, shows like these aren't made for people our age and their popularity is boosted by other factors than how much adults on message boards (i.e., the people the network doesn't care about and who haven't done anything to hurt the show or Disney Junior's success) care for them.

See, I honestly don't care about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Not one bit. Its' success or longevity doesn't affect me in the slightest. I've seen a few minutes of a few shows while waiting for Sofia the First or Doc McStuffins or Miles from Tomorrowland to come on, and MMC just looked like something that wouldn't interest me, so I've never bothered watching an entire episode and simply get on with my day. I don't spend my time on message boards bellyaching about how a show aimed at tiny tots that I personally don't care about is a success because such a practice is fruitless as I'm ages away from the audience this show is targeting. I've never understood why people spend endless hours griping about shows they don't like when other channels and remote controls exist. The shows I don't like I just don't watch. Simple as that.

I don't think people are complaining about MMC as a show. I've never saw any episode of it, but I guess it isn't a bad one. The point is that Disney is using its classic characters, which used to be funny and edgy, and transforms them into innocent babysitters. Disney already has a bunch of characters for this, most notably Winnie the Pooh.
But I must admit with the Rudish show Disney has now proven that they don't reduce them to that. And maybe all this has a good site: It keeps the characters alive. The kids of today get introduced to this 80-years-old characters and maybe stick with them as they grow older, when they discover Mickey's "other self". This might be especially true for american kids, who don't grow up with the Disney comics as most european children do.

Well, I suppose that's true.

I just hope M&TRR is not like MMCH. You know, when Mickey always ask the kids in a dumb way, "What do we need to find, Pluto?" or "What do I need to ride the road? A bike, a banana, or a bottle cap?" And awkward silence. If they just act out the story with good morals like Sofia the First and The Lion Guard, then I won't have a problem with that. I just hope Disney continues doing more shorts for Mickey Mouse or create a new tv series for Mickey and friends for everyone to watch. Of course, Donald Duck is going to be in the upcoming Ducktales reboot.
