Mike's Super Short Show (a.k.a. The Super Short Show in some countries) is a former Disney Channel series of promotional advertisements made in the manner of a regular series which mainly promoted upcoming VHS/DVD releases from Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar, along with The Walt Disney Company's theme park properties.

About[edit]

The program was formatted as a two-minute "series" in which Mike (Mike Johnson) and his sister Sally (Alyson Stoner) talked about upcoming and recent Disney home video film releases, both with theatrical films and direct-to-video titles such as the Air Bud franchise. It was started on January 1, 2002 by Art Spigel, produced by Jason Wolk and continued on until its end on March 6, 2007.

Promotional duties[edit]

Most movies that were produced by The Walt Disney Company and Pixar Animation Studios, such as The Incredibles, The Haunted Mansion, and The Little Mermaid, were featured on the series during Disney promotional breaks just prior to the home media launch of the respective film. From time to time, the show also provided a sneak-peek at events taking place at Walt Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in California, such as the opening of a new ride or attraction.

Disney stars such as Amy Bruckner, Aly and AJ, Kyla Pratt, Ashley Tisdale, Raven-Symoné, Brenda Song, Christy Carlson Romano, The Cheetah Girls, Ricky Ullman, and Miley Cyrus appeared on the show during its run.

Follow-up shows[edit]

Mike's Super Short Show was replaced by the newscast-themed Disney's Really Short Report, which ran until January 2009, being replaced by Leo Little's Big Show, which is similar in format to Mike's and formerly aired on Disney Channel.
