If you grew up in the early 2000s, I’m sure you have heard of Disney’s “House of Mouse”.

As a 90s baby, I loved turning on Toon Disney and hearing Mickey’s voice, welcoming me into the House of Mouse. The hit television series was one of my family’s favorites, and when we found out it was coming to an end, it broke our hearts.

Disney’s “House of Mouse” was an animated television series that originally aired from 2001 – 2003 for three seasons. The show consisted of Mickey Mouse and the gang running the cartoon theater dinner club in ToonTown. When you visit the “House of Mouse” you get an evening of entertainment — from Disney cartoons to animated movie clips.

The animated series received two nominations for awards, and select cast members even won awards for their performances in “House of Mouse.” This popular animated series inspired two spin off films, “Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse” and “Mickey’s House of Villains.

I would love to see Disney bring back “House of Mouse,” continuing to showcase the original characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and the rest of the gang as well as Disney Classics like Snow White, Cinderella, Peter Pan, and Dumbo. But I would love to see them bring in the new characters that weren’t around during the early 2000s. Seeing characters like Rapunzel and Flynn, Tiana and Naveen, and of course Elsa and Anna take the stage at Mickey’s House of Mouse would be extremelly exciting, especially for the new generation.

It wouldn’t be far off for Disney to bring back the popular television series, as they have already announced other shows making a come back on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+. “Lizzie McGuire” fans were ecstatic to hear Hilary Duff would be reprising her role as Lizzie in an all new series coming to Disney+. Much like “House of Mouse”, “Lizzie McGuire” only last a couple of seasons on Disney Channel, running from 2001 – 2004.
