Default New Mickey Mouse Shorts

Love these. The art direction is solid, and I like that they get a bit of edgy humor in there.

Wow, these are seriously some of the best cartoons I have seen in ages. I was always fond of the classic Disney shorts, especially Donald Duck, but I always valued them more as a testament to Walt Disney's revolutionary work in animation and as pioneers in slapstick cartoon humor rather than actually having achieved excellence in that regard. In the decades since, we've had cartoons that raised the bar so much higher that the old cartoons couldn't really compete.

So here we have these shorts that take the classic characters that we all know, putting them into their archetypal roles, and putting them into modern, intelligently-crafted slapstick scenarios. Add to that exceptional production value (I was particularly impressed by the fact that, when found in a foreign country, the characters actually speak the local language - it's not gibberish), a refusal to dumb the humor down for kids - dare I say, even the occasional bit of adult humor, and simple yet comprehensible plots that allow the writers to cram a story and rapid-fire gags into a space of three minutes, and you have sheer, distilled brilliance.

Here are some of my favorites so far (Goofy's job interview is among them, you can see it in the first post).







With a brilliant cameo from Uncle Scrooge.


"I just have dry skin!"


That moment when Donald shows up.

Another good one. Actually, if you like classic Disney shorts, they also upload some of the old Mickey shorts to that channel as well. It's not just the off-the-wall crazy modern stuff.

i definitely stand by my opinion from two years ago this is brilliant stuff

in the meantime ive also been really impressed by watching through gravity falls last year and am extremely stoked for nuducktales

meanwhile star wars rebels is also shaping up to be a great successor to clone wars

disney has created a couple of really good series over the past few years alongside the teenage sitcom mill and dumb movie spinoff series which still seem to dominate its tv output but im very glad to see it continues to innovate (even if it is with reboots)

Poe, I have to say that I am delighted that you like these shorts. You seem like the kind of no-nonsense guy who would not embrace some of the absurdist humor featured in the new Mickey shorts.

Personally, I think they're great. The art direction is there, the humor is there, and in many ways it's a little bit more true to the original Mickey characterization where he was a bit of a troublemaker in some ways. I think they do a good job of making it modern without being soulless.
