A new batch of short form 2D cartoons will be bringing the 85 year old cartoon character from Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, Mickey Mouse, back to his roots (maybe some of you young ones don’t know, but the Mouse himself originally started as a non-talking toon in a variety of black and white Disney shorts.)
The new series consisting of 19 cartoon shorts will start airing on Friday, June 28 on the Disney Channel, Disney.com, and WATCH Disney Channel. The premiere will also be supported by an online game called “Mickey Delivery Dash,” which is already available on Disney.com.
By bringing Mickey’s comedic adventures to life with vitality, humor, inventiveness and charm, the entire Disney Television Animation team of artists, animators and directors have worked to capture the essence of what Walt Disney himself created 85 years ago,” said president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, Gary Marsh.
