TV Series Review

Adventure, as you might expect from the title, is the name of the game with Mickey Mouse and his friends in Mickey Mouse: Mixed-Up Adventures.

There’s no mystery too mild and no task too tiny for Mickey, Pluto, Goofy, Minnie, Daisy, Donald, Pete and Chip and Dale in Hot Dog Hills. Together, this lovable, well-known group of companions work on the same team to bring fun-loving action wherever they go.

Mickey is THE Mouse

Disney Junior’s Mickey Mouse: Mixed-Up Adventures started in 2017 as a spinoff of  Mickey Mouse: Clubhouse. This newest version, though, adds a little more excitement and daring to the mix.

The focus in each 12-minute episode is on Mickey and his gang tackling problems and adventures head-on with a great attitude. Kids learn about teamwork, love and friendship. They also get to focus in on living in the moment, sharing and being kind to one another. Sure, Pete (who, for most of Disney history, has been a villain) gets a bit too ambitious and greedy sometimes, and Donald and others lose their temper. But kids ultimately learn good behavior and solid lessons as they dance and sing with Mickey and friends to their trusty motto: “everyone is family and helping is our business.”

Oct. 2, 2020: “The Mystery of Hot Dog Lake!/Phantom Wing”

In the first episode, Mickey and his friends try to find the truth that lies behind the mysterious lake creature, the Scrunchasaur. In the second episode, Daisy learns that her grandmother could be the famous hero, Phantom Wing.

Kids learn to share, ask for help and work together on important tasks. A sea creature saves Mickey and friends from potential danger.

Donald gets frustrated and too competitive. A greedy Pete loses track of what’s really important. Daisy reads a book to her friends about bad guys. Daisy and other characters perform silly stunts.
