The Charge

Stocked up with fun!

The Case

Out in the middle of a lush, computer-generated countryside is a place of unimaginable joy and counting: the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! That's right, the legendary mouse with the dots on his small red pants is ready to instruct your toddlers about the wonders of addition and rudimentary problem-solving.

Four Minnie-centric episodes on this disc:

* "Minnie's Bow-tique"
Minnie brings her love of bows to the free market, by opening up a stylish boutique.

* "Minnie's Picnic"
It's the social event of the year and you know what that means: hot dogs and plate counting.

* "Minnie's Bee Story"
The gang goes out looking for an escaped bee and along the way help an old duck hire a sheep to cut the lawn.

* "Minnie's Pajama Party"
The friends show up for an awesome pajama party but are faced with a huge problem: how to evenly divide the room into six spaces. Perhaps you can help?

Nice little show, colorful, energetic, and sporting a nice balance of lightweight, kid-friendly fun and education. It's an interactive production, with Mickey and company often asking for direction or unveiling a special multiple choice tool. The interaction gets another boost with the "Adventure" mode, which allows the user to make choices with the remote.

The rest of the specs: full frame and 5.1 surround.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. Rodentilicious.
