Let your imagination soar as you rescue Princess Daisy, wake up sleeping Minnie and outsmart pesky Pete on a race throught the woods. Join Mickey and the whole Clubhouse gang for three fun-filled storybook adventures bursting with unforgettable music, nonstop laughter and dazzling moursekemagice!


It is convenient and easy to dismiss educational videos as uninteresting, dull and boring. But trust the House of Mouse to always surprise us with something fresh and interesting for the young ones. Parents can safely leave the pre-schoolers in front of the television set without worrying about what unhealthy and unintended messages the programmes may instill in the kids. (There are debates to how television shouldn’t be a substitute for proper parenting, but that’s another issue altogether).

There are three episodes of “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” featured in this disc. This children’s TV series broadcast on Playhouse Disney Channel features Mickey and his friends in a dome-like clubhouse which they summon every episode. Running at 24 minutes each, the episodes are inspired by classic storybook adventures and given the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” treatment (for the scriptwriters to get creative) to captivate the young ones.

The first, “Minnie Red Riding Hood”, has Mickey and the gang sending a special “Minnie-Strone” soup to the sick Goofy. Along the way, they meet the hungry Pete, who repeatedly tries to take the soup away. The second, “Donald the Frog Prince”, sees Donald being turned into a frog and having to rescue Princess Daisy. The third, “Sleeping Minnie”, is, well, about Minnie who has fallen into a deep sleep and the gang has to wake her up.

Each episode introduces concepts like mathematics, shapes and colors to the viewers – and in an engaging way too. Those at home are expected to response to the questions Mickey and his friends pose, and they return praises too (this will get the young ones really excited – Mickey is talking to them from inside the television screen!)

The cynical viewer in you may scoff at these synopses, but considering the target audience of these stories, they do work pretty well. Viewers who are familiar with the show will be shouting the perfectly-rhymed phrases shouting “Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse” and “Oh, toodles!” together with the characters. Don’t be surprised if you find your kid dancing along to the “Hot Dog” dance at the end of every episode.

We know this is no Pixar production, but the well-paced episodes and the clean animation is good enough to captivate the young ones’ imagination. Who knows, the kid in you may be joining in the fun.


This Code 3 DVD contains a Game Time “Interactive Fairy Tale: Tales from Toodles” where kids can decide how they want the story to turn out by choosing different tools and gadgets. A 24-minute Bonus Episode “Little Einsteins Brothers and Sisters to the Rescue” is also included on the disc. The animated series broadcast on Playhouse Disney Channel is a joy to watch. In this particular episode, learn about German folk art piece and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. Also, check out the “Sneak Peeks” section where you can watch previews of 101 Dalmatians, The Jungle Book, Wall E and more.


The disc’s visual transfer is pristine and crisp, and there are 2.0 Stereo English, Thai, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Spanish and Portuguese audio tracks to choose from.
