Disney Channel will debut the first-ever extended episode of the Emmy Award-winning “Mickey Mouse” cartoon shorts as part of a themed day of programming in honor of Mickey Mouse’s birthday on Monday November 18th (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). The special seven-minute comedic cartoon titled Potatoland finds Mickey, Donald and Goofy on a road trip to Idaho to fulfill Goofy’s lifelong dream of visiting what he fondly remembers as Potatoland theme park. The short will be available on WATCHDisneyChannel.com, the WATCH Disney Channel app for smartphones and tablets, Disney.com and iTunes the day after the linear premiere. Here’s a clip:
On Monday “Mickey Mouse” cartoons will air every half hour on Disney Channel beginning at 1:25 p.m. ET/PT, leading up to the premiere of Potatoland.
If you can’t make it to New York – Mickey will be coming to a theatre near you, and you can’t avoid it. An incredible new short – Get A Horse! – a tribute to Mickey of the 1920s, will be playing with Disney’s Frozen in theatres everywhere November 27th (a week before in Los Angeles)… The new theatrical short features many surprises, so we’ll hold the spoilers for now. Suffice to say, it’s a must-see (in a theatre, in 3-D).
