The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse is an American animated streaming television series produced by Disney Television Animation for Disney+. The series is a continuation and revival of the Emmy Award-winning 2013 Mickey Mouse shorts, uses the same style, and has many of the same cast and crew, with the exception of the late Russi Taylor, who is replaced by Kaitlyn Robrock in the role of Minnie Mouse. The series premiered on November 18, 2020 to coincide with Mickey's 92nd birthday.[2]

From November 18 to December 18, Disney+ premiered two shorts a week. A further ten shorts premiered on July 28 until August 25, 2021.[3][4][5]

Music

Like in the previous series, the music was composed by Christopher Willis. Walt Disney Records released two soundtrack songs on a short album called The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, co-written by Willis: "Donald's Conga Song" from "Supermarket Scramble" and "The Wrangler's Code" from "Cheese Wranglers" in November 2020.[6][1]

Four more soundtrack songs were released under the title Songs from The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, including "As Long As I Have You" from "Duet for Two" plus "Island Rhythm", "Bubble Gum Days" and "Feelin' the Love".[2]

Reception

Common Sense Media rated the show 3 out of 5 stars: "The characters are put in different outlandish scenarios from one episode to the next and play versions of themselves that maintain their relationships and personalities. Familiar foes arrive on scene to cause trouble, but injuries are quickly remedied and accidents rarely amount to any realistic harm".[7]
