Mickey Mouse is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation featuring classic Disney 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 the earliest 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 provided by Mercury Filmworks.[4]

It is developed and executive produced by Emmy Award-winning artist Paul Rudish, who was the co-creator of Sym-Bionic Titan on Cartoon Network and is also the series' supervising director.[5] Joseph Holt is the series' art director.[5] On September 15, 2013, Paul Rudish, Jenny Gase-Baker and Joseph Holt won three Emmy Awards for the series.

The first episode, "Croissant de Triomphe" was first released as a special preview on March 12, 2013 on Disney.com.[3] The series officially premiered on June 28, 2013 on Disney Channel followed by the releases on Disney.com and Watch Disney Channel.[3] A total of 18 episodes aired in the first season while the second season, premiering on April 11, 2014, consisting of 19 episodes.[5] The third season premiered on July 17, 2015 with 20 episodes aired.[6] The fourth season premiered on June 9, 2017 with 19 episodes aired.[7] The fifth season premiered on October 6, 2018.[8]

Theme park attraction[edit]

On July 15, 2017, it was announced that a Mickey-themed attraction, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, will be coming to the Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park at Walt Disney World, replacing The Great Movie Ride. The new ride will be based on the series and will involve guests watching the premiere of a new Mickey Mouse cartoon and then entering the cartoon itself. The show's creative team, including Paul Rudish, Joseph Holt and composer Christopher Willis, is working with Walt Disney Imagineering to create the attraction.[26]
