Mouseterpiece Theater

Mousterpiece Theater was an American television show that ran on the Disney Channel that premiered on the channel's launch date on April 18, 1983 and continued with reruns into the 1990s.[1] It was a parody of the PBS show Masterpiece Theatre, presenting classic Disney shorts instead of showing dramatic works. George Plimpton hosted and gave commentary and background information before and after each cartoon. Each show tended to have a theme; Goofy's emergence as the staid everyman character for example. It usually ran usually later in the evenings.[2]
