Disney Junior’s whimsical animated series “Mickey Mouse Funhouse” introduces preschoolers’ first pal, Mickey Mouse, and his friends – Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto – to Funny, an enchanted talking playhouse who takes the Sensational Six on adventures of all types to unique worlds that inspire the imagination.
Geared to kids ages 2-5 and their families, “Mickey Mouse Funhouse” takes place in the magical Funhouse Forest, where Funny lives with his pet doghouse, Teddy, and Windy, the weathervane. Funny can change into anything – a rocket ship, a steamboat, an amusement park ride – and guides Mickey and his pals through all sorts of adventurous and comical quests. Inside the funhouse, the Stairs to Anywhere take the crew to the Adventure Doors, each one leading to a different world. Once transported to these new lands, Mickey and his friends are transformed into characters specific to each setting that help immerse them into whatever situation the doors have lead them. Whether portraying medieval knights, kings and queens in the kingdom of Majestica, old-timey cowboys and cowgirls in Sunny Gulch or mer-people in Underwater Ocean World, Mickey and his pals are eager to embark on these new adventures together.
“Mickey Mouse Funhouse” is guided by an established curriculum that nurtures multiple areas of child development: physical, emotional, social and cognitive, thinking and creative skills, as well as moral and ethical development. Stories demonstrate creative play, encourage wish fulfillment and impart age-appropriate social and emotional lessons about friendship, creativity and ingenuity. Curiosity, humor and discovery are central to the series as Mickey and his pals explore diverse places and meet new friends on their adventures.
