"Dennis the Duck" is the twenty-sixth episode of House of Mouse, originally aired on ABC on May 18, 2002. It is notably the last episode to air on Disney's One Saturday Morning before the show moved to the Disney Channel and Toon Disney.
It's Black-and-White Day at the House of Mouse, and the club is packed with old black and white cartoon characters. One of them, Dennis the Duck, tries to win over Donald, who is annoyed by him at first. No matter what Donald does, he can't get rid of Dennis, but then he has a change of heart when Dennis tries to erase himself.

- The guest character, Dennis the Duck, is most likely a reference to the prototype version of Donald seen in the 1931 poem More HooZoo.
- He very likely served as a stand-in for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney's first ever cartoon star of the 1920s, which was still under ownership of Universal and therefore didn't have the rights to at the time this show came out. Co-incidentally, Disney would successfully regain the rights to use Oswald from Universal for the first time since the 1920s in 2006.
- The goat that was in the Rubber Hose Band was fed the music sheets and had its tail turned like a crank to start the music, just like the one in Steamboat Willie.
- This episode has a dark moment in which Dennis tries to erase himself only to be saved by Donald. This is close to a suicide attempt, which is rather dark for a show like this.
- The animation of Mickey arriving onstage in his Steamboat Willie design was reused "Not So Goofy".
