Mickey Mouse Works was created to recreate the golden age of Disney's animated shorts, featuring some of Disney’s most popular characters. By using basic colors and the original sound effects, tremendous effort was put forth to capture the look and feel of classic Disney.

Each half-hour episode consisted of a variety of cartoons, varying in length from ninety seconds to twelve minutes. These shorts fell into three general types: the brief gag cartoons, the longer character-based cartoons, and the more classically-based "Mouse Tales" (usually the show's longest segment). The character-based segments also included "Silly Symphonies," carrying on the tradition of that series of theatrical shorts. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ... The redrawn (from 1930) opening title for the first Silly Symphony cartoon, The Skeleton Dance (1929). ...

The gag shorts, which lasted 90 seconds each, were shown with the following umbrella titles:

  • Mickey to the Rescue: Mickey tries to rescue Minnie from Pete's trap-laden hideout.
  • Maestro Minnie: Minnie conducts an orchestra of animated, disagreeable, instruments.
  • Goofy's Extreme Sports: Goofy shows off extreme sports to the words of his offscreen narrator.
  • Donald's Dynamite: Donald's activity is interrupted by the appearance of a well-placed bomb.
  • Von Drake's House of Genius: Ludwig Von Drake shows off an invention of his which goes haywire.
  • Pluto Gets the Paper: Pluto goes through a bit of problems trying to fetch the newspaper for Mickey.

With no established schedule or routine, Mickey Mouse Works was designed to look like one spontaneous flow. Adding to that feeling were the show's opening credits, which ended differently each week, the only constant being an elaborate interruption from a spotlight-stealing Donald Duck.

While most skits involved individual characters, some have Mickey, Donald, and Goofy running a special service group. Most Goofy skits have him doing a "how-to" segment, always accompanied by a narrator.

When the show was replaced by Disney's House of Mouse in January 2001, it was never seen again afterwards. However, when the shorts were shown right before Toon Disney's Big Movie Show on weekdays, they were shown with the Mickey Mouse Works closing credits. Disneys House of Mouse is an animated television series, produced by Walt Disney Television, that originally aired from 2001 to 2004, and ran for 52 episodes. ...
