Oh boy! Disney+ has just announced that the new crop of Mickey Mouse shorts, which initially debuted on the Disney Channel in the spring of 2013, will continue on the streaming platform. This time around they’ll sport a new name, The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, with the first installment premiering on Mickey’s birthday, November 18. We cannot wait.

When the new Mickey Mouse shorts premiered, it felt like a bolt of lightning had struck the character. For so many years, Mickey Mouse had felt hermetically sealed; devoid of personality, he was resigned to a bland corporate symbol. Even in the Oscar-nominated theatrical short “Get a Horse!,” Mickey was used as a kind of antique prop for a new technological gimmick, as the classic characters shifted in and out of 3D space. But the Mickey Mouse shorts, overseen by Genndy Tartakovsky confederate Paul Rudish, had real wit and energy. Mickey was once again a fully formed character, capable of a range of emotions (some of them unpleasant), who was placed in a variety of situations and in a number of exciting new settings. Since 2013 there have been 94 shorts and 2 specials and this version of the character, whose hyper-stylization is both modern and a callback to the classic era of shorts, has been adapted for a wide array of merchandise and his very own attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway
