Disney Channel to Celebrate Mickey Mouse’s Birthday This Month
This coming Monday, November 19, the Disney Channel will be celebrating the birthday of one of the industry’s most recognizable and beloved characters, Mickey Mouse. The celebrations will be heralded by the premiere of the first ever extended episode of the Emmy Award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, followed by a whole day of themed programming in honor of the ever-optimistic mouse.
Starting at 1:25 pm, Mickey Mouse cartoons will be airing every half hour until the premiere of the seven minute special titled “Potatoland,” which finds Mickey, Donald, and Goofy as they go on a road trip to Idaho in order to fulfill Goofy’s lifelong dream of visiting the Potatoland Theme Park. The short will also be made available on WATCHDisneyChannel.com, the WATCH Disney Channel app for smartphones and tablets, Disney.com and iTunes the day after the premiere at 8 p.m. on Nov. 18.
