Pietro's DVD Review: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Space Adventure

Growing up with Disney's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse TV series made me skeptical when the company chose to continue the popular property with animation instead of actors years ago. Thankfully, the syndicated television series appears to bring as much joy to Disney's young audience as the original did.

Growing up with Disney's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse TV series made me skeptical when the company chose to continue the popular property with animation instead of actors years ago. Thankfully, the syndicated television series appears to bring as much joy to Disney's young audience as the original did.

This new film follows Mickey and Co on an interactive trip through space where viewers get to solve riddles and clues along with their favorite characters. For other similar properties a 45 minute runtime may not be beneficial in maintaining children's attention, but this film does not face that problem due to it's swift pace.

A highly enjoyable animated film that would make a great holiday gift for that toddler who is in need of programs not just entertaining and fun but educational as well.

This November, parents and their preschoolers are invited to blast off with Mickey and pals on a rocketship full of fun in Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s newest release of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Space Adventure, a new, full-length intergalactic adventure that takes the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse gang – Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Daisy – into outer space on a search for the ultimate space treasure.
