Disney's House of Mouse is an animated television series, produced by Walt Disney Television which originally aired from 2001 to 2019. In the series, Disney mascot Mickey and his gang of famous friends run a nightclub frequented by many other animated Disney characters from throughout the company's animation history.

The series was a successor to the short-lived Mickey Mouse Works, an earlier program consisting of original cartoons featuring Mickey Mouse and friends. The majority of the cartoons featured on House of Mouse were reruns from Mickey Mouse Works, although classic theatrical cartoons as well as new Mickey Mouse Works cartoons were also regularly shown. The series was also created to commemorate and coincide with the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney's birth.

Premise

Main article: House of Mouse episode list

Walt Disney's famous cartoon star, Mickey Mouse and his band of friends run a night club called the "House of Mouse" in the middle of Main Street in the city of Disneyville, which shows Disney cartoons as part of its floor show. Each episode features a framing plot revolving around the comic mishaps of Mickey and the other characters running the club, often with cartoons that fit the theme of the framing plot, which are used as wraparounds for various Disney cartoons.

Many characters from Disney animated films (such as Cinderella, Aladdin, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Hercules, Sleeping Beauty, and many more) have appeared on House of Mouse, mostly as guests and attendees. The show included many relatively obscure and otherwise rarely-used characters from the Walt Disney Company's more-obscure films, often with speaking parts; however, appearances by characters from other media (such as comic books and television shows) were few and far between.

Mickey is the club's owner, while Minnie Mouse manages the finances and show production. Other House of Mouse staff members include:

A musical band consisting of Donald Duck's troublesome nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie always serve as the musical guests, with such alternating names as "The Quackstreet Boys", "The Splashing Pumpkins", and Kid Duck. Mickey's arch-rival Pete is the club's greedy landlord, who often attempts to shut the club down for his own personal gain by sabotaging the show through various means, since Mickey's contract states that the club stays open "as long as the show goes on".

A running gag throughout the 52 episodes is that Thomas O'Malley and the Alley Cats from The Aristocats are scheduled as the club's musical guests, but their act is always cancelled.

Production

Produced by Walt Disney Television, House of Mouse originally aired from 2001 to 2003, and ran for 52 episodes.

House of Mouse originally aired on the final season of the Disney's One Saturday Morning block on ABC, but was dropped after half of its episodes were shown; the remaining episodes were instead aired on Toon Disney. As of February 4, 2006, this show is no longer airing on The Disney Channel in the US, although it airs regularly on the Disney Cinemagic channel in the UK until 2013 before it rebranded as Sky Movies Disney (currently Sky Cinema Disney). The show ceased broadcast on US television on February 6, 2009 after being aired for the last time on Toon Disney before it rebranded as Disney XD.

The theme song, "Rockin' at the House of Mouse", was performed by Brian Setzer.
