Pandemic Picks: Mickey Mouse Shorts

If you’ve followed me for any length of time online you’ve probably come across me throwing shade in Disney’s direction. Up until recently I’ve been pretty vocal in my disapproval of their business practices, and while I still have major problems with them as a company, they’ve won some points with me for their Mickey Mouse shorts.

The Mickey Mouse shorts first premiered on June 28th, 2013 on the Disney Channel and then eventually made their way to the Mickey Mouse YT channel – which is where I found them and immediately fell in love with them. I was taken in by the animation, which was fun and energetic, as well as the super-stylized and colorful backgrounds. I found myself binging through them pretty quickly and even subscribing to the YT Channel so I could catch the latest one when it dropped.

For today’s Pandemic Pick I thought I would make this my recommendation and give you a few of my favorites from this long-running series. Enjoy, and let me know which one is your favorite.

Corona Cartoons: Clerks Animated Series Pt. 1

The Corona Virus means that we can’t record our Venture Bros wrap up, which in turn means we can’t quite get to our Frisky Dingo watch-through. Bummer, right? Well, not anymore, because we’re making lemonade out of a virus and doing a series about a bunch of different cartoons while we wait for this whole mess to blow over. We’re starting our “Corona Cartoons” with the Clerks animated series. Well, the first half at least.

7.10: The Saphrax Protocol

Alas, dear listener. We’ve come to the end of series…for now. There are no more Venture Bros episodes for us to discuss and break down (poorly) so take in this last opportunity while you still can. “But Shownotes Writer,” you ask softly, “what comes after Venture Bros?” That’s a good question, and one that our heroes answer pretty quickly. All you gotta do is push that play button and just go to town on the audio. Like, listen the shit out of it

7.09: The Forecast Manufacturer

This week on Venture Bros…SNOW! Bryan Dressel, Graham “Brock” Mason, and Matt “Dean Venture” Dykes discuss the penultimate episode of season seven (and possibly the series? At least until there’s more? Please make more?) The Forecast Manufacturer. Both this episode and the finale are deeply connected so advanced warning that there might be some callouts to moments from next week.

There’s also some serious hints to the next show we’ll be doing after we complete Venture Bros. You love to hear it.

7.07: The Unicorn in Captivity

This week on Venture Bros, A Venture Brothers Podcast Bryan Dressel, Graham “Princess Tinglepants” Mason, and Matt “Catclops” Dykes discuss the season seven episode “The Unicorn in Captivity.” Easily one of the better episodes of the season, “Unicorn” sees the Monarch joining a heist featuring some wild characters, and a particularly powerful invention that takes Rusty down an interesting path. Wub wub wub.

7.05: The Inamorata Consequence

This week on the podcast Bryan Dressel, Graham “H.E.L.P.eR. MOD-2” Mason, and Matt “Corporal Snoopy” Dykes talk The Inamorata Consequence, which is quite enjoyable…unless you’re Matt. The Guild of Calamitous Intent and the OSI renegotiate their contract, Hank reunites with Dermot, and Dean goes back to the place where he learned that he and Hank were clones…only to find out that Rusty was ALSO A CLONE. Oh, and did you know that H.E.L.P.eR. MOD-2 was voiced by Rhys Darby? Fun!
