Disney's Really Short Report was a mini-show that ran on the Disney Channel and promoted upcoming Disney DVD releases. The show was launched in 2007 to replace the long running Mike's Super Short Show which was hosted by Michael Alan Johnson and Alyson Stoner, which had ended its run in December 2006. It is a creation of 7-ATE-9 ENTERTAINMENT and currently tapes in Walt Disney Studio Sound Stage 5 in Burbank, California, which for almost four years was home to Mike's Super Short Show.

Disney's Really Short Report features a newsdesk-like atmosphere, utilizing three young actors who portray the members of the "DVD team". Standard segments include "Top Stories" and the "Special Features Forecast".

Currently, the staff that was part of Mike's Super Short Show is still in place. The Really Short Report was later adapted in the United Kingdom with a British cast and crew.

Disney's Really Short Report ended in January 2009. It was replaced by Leo Little's Big Show.
