The Disney Channel debuted two new Mickey Mouse animated shorts this weekend. Yodelburg and No Service feature a new style of animation and a new direction for Mickey Mouse that the Walt Disney Company hopes returns some relevance of the character to today’s youth. If you weren’t able to catch them on the Disney Channel, you can watch them via YouTube now:
While I love the Mary Blair style backgrounds and artwork in Yodelberg, I’m saddened by the rude humor director Paul Rudish (Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls) has chosen to impart, particularly in No Service. I’m not a fan of Ren & Stimpy style animation and I definitely see too much of it in these two shorts. What do you think?
More shorts in this series will debut over the July 5th weekend.
