    Indeed it is. And it better be better than MMCH, even though it's for preschoolers.

    Why are people hating on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse?

    There's a MUCH worse over-rated preschool show on Nick Jr...

    Bubble Guppies!

    At least MMCH is an original concept (except for borrowing elements from Mickey Mouse Club but that was the intention of the show) while BG is a derivative of another show by the same company!

    That's silly?

    No that's downright pathetic!

    I'm sorry, but it's not the Mickey Mouse I know and love. I don't know anything about Bubble Gupples. How bad was it?

    Update: Saw it. EEEEW! I see your point.

    It propably isn't that MMCH is a bad show, it is the fact that the classic Disney characters are shown here in a very let's say "toddler-friendly" way, which is very contrary to how they are usually potrayed.

    One might argue that especially Mickey has had various character changes from his early rascal days in black and white to the "good American" in the color cartoons and the matter-of-fact detective in Paul Murrys comics up to the highly criticized "TAFKAMM" stories in the 00's.

    But anyway, if you want to do a kids show like MMCH there is no need to take pre-existing characters and "childify" them, when you can just create new characters.

    I wonder what audience Disney is targeting with this. Car racing toddlers are very rare, I guess.

    I hate when it's aimed at preschoolers. However, I have to admit, this looks very promising. This reminds me of Mickey Speedway USA on Nintendo 64 that I used to play back then. Even the CGI animation looks better than it was on MMCH. And I'm glad they included Cuckoo Loca. She's so cute. She reminds me of Tweety. So, I'll give this show a chance. I just hope this MMCH nonsense is behind them.

    That looks pretty cool, and better than MMCH. It reminds me of Turbo Dogs.
    Many of the fans of the Cars franchise are toddlers, and a lot of little kids love shows about vehicles. A major example of this is Thomas the Tank Engine.

    @mimitchi33 You're right, I didn't thought of that, even though my own nephew is very much into that Cars stuff.

    True that. Up until Paw Patrol came out, I saw little boys with toys and clothing of that and Thomas. I still do sometimes.

    I can't help but feel the Announcer's voice sounds familiar. Is it Nolan North?

    You know, I'm kind of excited about this show and I hope it's better than that awful Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. And rumor has it, I've heard they might include one of my favorite vintage characters, Horace Horsecollar. I hope he's included like he was in Mickey Mouse Works, House of Mouse, and Mickey Mouse shorts.

    Here is some more information I dug up on the series.

    http://www.disneyabcpress.com/disneyjunior/pressrelease/fact-sheet/

    1. The show will regularly air at 9am on Fridays.

    2. Like with Bob's Gannoway's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse & Jake And The Neverland Pirates, Kelly Ward is the voice director for the series.

    3. Donald in this series is voiced by Daniel Ross instead of Tony Anselmo.

    I also found some videos. One has Billy Beagle (voiced by Jay Leno) and a girl named Sammi going behind the scenes.



    The other one has ESPN anchors on it.

    Why not have Mickey and the gang pilot giant space robots instead?
