Let's not kid ourselves, whenever we watch a tv show, there are moments when we think of an idea that we believe would have made the show better somehow. Disney cartoons should really be no exception, so we have to ask ourselves, what would we change in which Disney cartoon?
I've had three ideas on this topic in the past:
Gargoyles - Demona being a good guy: her past and immortality would relatively remain unchanged, except that she would not have been apart of the Castle Wyvern attack and was actually betrayed by another Gargoyle
Timon and Pumbaa - Simba being a main cast member; the way i see it, that way the show would give us some insight into what happened to Simba while he was growing up under Timon and Pumbaa's care, he might have even added to the comedy.
The Legend of Tarzan - Giving Tarzan and Jane an adoptive son; I don't know why, but that just seemed like a good idea. I've even settled on a backstory and personality for this fanon character and on how he would fit into each episode.
Make then better, if they only want live-action shows on Disney Channel. The ratings are down hard from just 2 years ago, and kids seem to get tired of the same shows, expect a major shake-up or a channel switch (XD and DC) to switch tiers, making XD now on the basic block, and DC for digital only.
He may be dead, but he's now busy manipulating Disney Villains into doing evil stuff in the Disney Animated Canon. Wanna know who's behind the contrived motives of Ratcliffe and Rourke? BILL CYPHER!!!!!
"Doug's Sour Songbird" is the fiftieth episode of Doug.
In preparation for Bluffington Pride Day, the contest to write the official Bluffington Anthem is on. Patti has written the perfect song; the only problem is, she can't sing to save her life. Doug lies to Patti about her singing, which leads to her entering the contest, and Doug has to tell the truth or convince Patti to drop out of the singing contest because it would only embarrass her.
Mickey Mouse Works was made to recreate the golden age of Disney's animated shorts, featuring some of Disney’s most popular characters. By using basic colors and the original sound effects, tremendous effort was put forth to capture the look and feel of the classic Disney cartoons.
Each half-hour episode consisted of a variety of cartoons, varying in length from ninety seconds to twelve minutes. These shorts fell into three general types: the brief gag cartoons, the longer character-based cartoons, and the more classically-based "Mouse Tales" (usually the show's longest segment). The character-based segments also included "Silly Symphonies," carrying on the tradition of that series of theatrical shorts.
The gag shorts, which lasted 90 seconds each, were shown with the following umbrella titles:
Mickey to the Rescue: Mickey tries to rescue Minnie from Pete's trap-laden hideout.
Maestro Minnie: Minnie conducts an orchestra of animated, disagreeable instruments.
Goofy's Extreme Sports: Goofy shows off extreme sports to the words of his offscreen narrator.
Donald's Dynamite: Donald's activity is interrupted by the appearance of a well-placed bomb.
Von Drake's House of Genius: Ludwig Von Drake shows off an invention of his which goes haywire.
Pluto Gets the Paper: Pluto goes through a bit of problems trying to fetch the newspaper for Mickey.
With no established schedule or routine, Mickey Mouse Works was designed to look like one spontaneous flow. Adding to that feeling where the show's opening credits, which ended differently each week, the only constant being an elaborate interruption from a spotlight-stealing Donald Duck.
While most skits involved individual characters, some have Mickey, Donald, and Goofy running a special service group. Most Goofy skits have him doing a "how-to" segment, always accompanied by a narrator.
The show aired on the Russian version of The Disney Afternoon block since the block actually aired in the 2000's, and is one of few shows not to air on the Disney Afternoon block in the US but airing on the block in other countries.
When the show was replaced by House of Mouse in September 2000, many of the Mouse Works shorts were repeated on the new show, with some airing for the first time. However, the original Mouse Works format have never been seen again. But when the shorts were shown right before and after Toon Disney's Big Movie Show on weekdays, they were shown with the Mickey Mouse Works closing credits. Two shorts, Minnie Takes Care of Pluto and the Pluto Gets the Paper segment "Vending Machine", appear to be the only two shorts that did not re-air on House of Mouse, because of the former's dark content. Some Mouse Works shorts were originally presented in the full-screen format during their debut and then cropped to widescreen when aired in House of Mouse (since House of Mouse was originally produced in widescreen).
Several of the gag cartoons were released theatrically with various 1999 Disney movies and released to theaters as commercials for the show. These included:
Donald's accident: Donald flies by in an airplane with a banner that reads "Starring Donald Duck." After flying offscreen, the airplane blows up, leaving Donald flying the engine held together with a few leftover parts of the plane.
Donald's accident: Donald pulls up in a train engine with a car attached to a banner that reads "Starring Donald Duck." But, while cleaning a smudge off of the side of the car, the side falls off, flattening him.
Donald's accident: Donald drops down a huge block of granite which he carves into a monument which reads "Starring Donald Duck." The monument collapses around him, leaving a pile of rock which reads "Darn Old Duck."
Donald's accident: Donald brings down a steel plate which reads "Starring Donald Duck. He rivets this over the regular logo, but not well enough as the plate falls over, flattening him into his hard hat.
Donald's accident: Donald lays train track and brings in a train car which reads "Starring Donald Duck." But another set of tracks gets laid in front of it, and another train comes through which runs him down.
Donald's accident: Donald rolls out a magic disappearing box, shuts the curtains (which read "Duck Works"), but when he opens them, an upset tiger has appeared that grabs Donald and pulls him into the box and attacks him (the curtains close during this).
The only known video releases of this show include a Pluto Gets the Paper segment in the 1999101 Dalmatians and The Rescuers VHS's, and ten Donald Duck segments in the Walt Disney Treasures: The Chronological Donald, Volume Four DVD.
In Finland, the show's title was changed to Akun Tehdas, which translates to "Donald's Factory", due to Donald being more popular in Finland. Perhaps as a result of this, his spotlight-stealing gags in the intro were cut in this version.
Disney's House of Mouse is an animated television series, produced by Walt Disney Television which originally aired from 2000to2003. In the series, Disney mascot Mickey and his gang of famous friends run a nightclub frequented by many other animated Disney characters from throughout the company's animation history.
The series was a successor to the short-lived Mickey Mouse Works, an earlier program consisting of original cartoons featuring Mickey Mouse and friends. The majority of the cartoons featured on House of Mouse were reruns from Mickey Mouse Works, although classic theatrical cartoons as well as new Mickey Mouse Works cartoons were also regularly shown. The series was also created to commemorate and coincide with the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney's birth.
Walt Disney's famous cartoon star, Mickey Mouse and his band of friends run a night club called the "House of Mouse" in the middle of Main Street in the city of Disneyville, which shows Disney cartoons as part of its floor show. Each episode features a framing plot revolving around the comic mishaps of Mickey and the other characters running the club, often with cartoons that fit the theme of the framing plot, which are used as wraparounds for various Disney cartoons.
Many characters from Disney animated films (such as Cinderella, Aladdin, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Hercules, Sleeping Beauty, and many more) have appeared on House of Mouse, mostly as guests and attendees. The show included many relatively obscure and otherwise rarely-used characters from the Walt Disney Company's more-obscure films, often with speaking parts; however, appearances by characters from other media (such as comic books and television shows) were few and far between.
Mickey is the club's owner, while Minnie Mouse manages the finances and show production. Other House of Mouse staff members include:
A musical band consisting of Donald Duck's troublesome nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie always serve as the musical guests, with such alternating names as "The Quackstreet Boys", "The Splashing Pumpkins", and Kid Duck. Mickey's arch-rival Pete is the club's greedy landlord, who often attempts to shut the club down for his own personal gain by sabotaging the show through various means, since Mickey's contract states that the club stays open "as long as the show goes on".
A running gag throughout the 52 episodes is that Thomas O'Malley and the Alley Cats from The Aristocats are scheduled as the club's musical guests, but their act is always cancelled.
Despite not appearing in the show itself (as the show was released one year before the release of their movie), Lilo and Stitch were featured in the House of Mouse online game, Pack the House.
Tarzan made an appearance in the intro to the show's official site, as well as Pack the House in spite of not appearing in the show itself, although his movie's cast was represented, as Tantor made two brief but notable appearances in the show.
