Mickey Mouse, walking up a dotted path, greets the viewers and invites them to a playdate at the Clubhouse. He directs viewers to a plot of land where the Clubhouse is, but it's nowhere to be seen. He then remembers and reminds viewers that the Clubhouse can only be summoned using the "magic words" "Meeska, Mooska, Mickey Mouse!" Once said, the Clubhouse forms itself and Mickey and his friends arrive to hang out and play together while the theme song plays. Each visit sees at least one character get into an issue or scenario that must be solved quickly. Mickey could also use the "Picture Puzzle" device to reveal an image that relates to the episode's topic, usually being accompanied by its own song. Once the problem has been explained, Mickey uses the Mousekedoer, a giant Mickey-head-shaped computer whose main function is to distribute the day's Mouseketools, to acquire a set (usually 3, 4, or possibly 5) of objects needed to solve the day's problem, singing a song while doing so. One of the tools is a "Mystery Mouseketool", which is a surprise tool represented by a question mark that isn't revealed until later in the episode. Toodles lays himself onto the Mousekedoer to download the tools that have been shown on the machine's screen and prepare for Mickey and the gang to use the tools. The episode's main plot then plays as Mickey and his friends search for the solution. When ready to pick a Mouseketool, the gang shouts "Oh, Toodles!" to call Toodles, who pops up from where he is hiding and presents the set on-screen so the viewer can pick which tool Mickey and his friends need for the current situation, which usually works flawlessly. When ready to use the Mystery Mouseketool, which usually happens after all the other tools have been used, the object is revealed and is celebrated by saying "We've got ears! Say cheers!" A while afterwards, the problem would be solved thanks to the gang's determination to solve everyday problems as well as assistance by the viewers. Mickey then directs his friends back to the Clubhouse to perform the Hot Dog Dance while the person with their issue fixed thanks viewers for their help and Toodles returns to his spot on the Mousekedoer, which spins around to the outside to allow everyone to leave. The Clubhouse then disappears as Mickey thanks viewers for their visit.
Wayne Allwine as Mickey Mouse and Martian Mickey (2006–2012) Many episodes featuring Allwine's voice aired years after his death.
The program was initially announced on March 1, 2005, by Gary Marsh, who is the Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production for The Walt Disney Company. Mickey and friends previously appeared on television in Mickey Mouse Works (1999–2000) and House of Mouse (2001–03), but this show marked the first time that all 6 of the major Disney characters have appeared on television in computer-animated form (except for Donald, who appeared in CG in the Mickey Mouse Works short "Computer.don"). The characters debuted in CG form in 2003 at the Magic Kingdom attraction Mickey's PhilharMagic, then in the 2004 home videoMickey's Twice Upon a Christmas. However, in this incarnation, Mickey's and Minnie's 3D renderings are truer to their original hand-drawn likenesses, in that their ears remain distinct perfect circles regardless of which way their heads are turned. The show features two original songs performed by They Might Be Giants, including the opening theme song and the closing song "The Hot Dog Song", which echoes Mickey's first spoken words in the 1929 short The Karnival Kid. Along with improved animation for the second season, the series transitioned into a widescreen HD format. All the episodes of this series, excluding Mickey's Great Clubhouse Hunt, are available on Disney+.
For the first season, at the end of every episode, Mickey would say his catchphrase "See ya real soon!" For the second season onward, Mickey closed the show with "Aw, thanks for stoppin' by!" while "See ya real soon!" was used only for special episodes.
In addition, the first season is the only season not having clips nor recaps during the credits. Instead, it shows the gang dancing their "Hot Dog Dance" moves while showing the credits.
The magic words used to summon the clubhouse, "Meeska, Mooska, Mickey Mouse!", alludes to the Mouseketeer chant of the same phrase in the original Mickey Mouse Club.
It's currently the only Playhouse Disney show to still air reruns on Disney Junior as of July 2021.
