Mickey Mouse is an American animated comedy television series produced by Disney Television Animation. It features classic cartoon characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto in contemporary settings such as Paris, Venice, Tokyo and New York. The series has the slapstick feel of classic Mickey Mouse shorts, while providing a modern update with the extensive use of Toon Boom and Flash animation, and "presents Mickey in a broad range of humorous situations that showcase his pluck and rascality, along with his long-beloved charm and good heartedness".[3] The animation is being provided by the Canadian studio, Mercury Filmworks.[4]

It is being executive produced by Emmy Award-winning artist Paul Rudish, who was co-creator of Sym-Bionic Titan on Cartoon Network and is also directing the series, along with Aaron Springer and Clay Morrow.[5] Joseph Holt is the series' art director.[5] On September 15, 2013, Paul Rudish, Jenny Gase-Baker, and Joseph Holt won 3 Emmy Awards for their work on the episode "Croissant de Triomphe."
