The series was a successor to the short-lived ''Mickey Mouse Works'', an earlier program consisting of original cartoons featuring Mickey Mouse and friends. The majority of the cartoons featured on ''House of Mouse'' were reruns from ''Mickey Mouse Works'', although classic theatrical cartoons as well as new ''Mickey Mouse Works'' cartoons were also regularly shown. The series was also created to commemorate and coincide with the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney's birth.
 
 
alt Disney's famous cartoon star, Mickey Mouse and his band of friends run a night club called the "House of Mouse" in the middle of Main Street in the city of Disneyville, which shows Disney cartoons as part of its floor show. Each episode features a framing plot revolving around the comic mishaps of Mickey and the other characters running the club, often with cartoons that fit the theme of the framing plot, which are used as wraparounds for various Disney cartoons.
 
 
Many characters from Disney animated films (such as ''Cinderella'', ''Aladdin'', ''Pinocchio'', ''Peter Pan'', ''The Lion King'', ''The Little Mermaid'', ''Hercules'', ''Sleeping Beauty'', and many more) have appeared on ''House of Mouse'', mostly as guests and attendees. The show included many relatively obscure and otherwise rarely-used characters from the Walt Disney Company's more-obscure films, often with speaking parts; however, appearances by characters from other media (such as comic books and television shows) were few and far between.

Mickey's arch-rival Pete is the club's greedy landlord, who often attempts to shut the club down for his own personal gain by sabotaging the show through various means, since Mickey's contract states that the club stays open "as long as the show goes on".
 
 
A running gag throughout the 52 episodes is that Thomas O'Malley and the Alley Cats from ''The Aristocats'' are scheduled as the club's musical guests, but their act is always cancelled.
 
 
== ProductionEdit ==
 
Produced by Walt Disney Television, ''House of Mouse'' originally aired from 2001 to 2003, and ran for 52 episodes.

House of Mouse, commonly referred to as Disney's House of Mouse, was an animated cartoon series created between 2001 and 2003, in honor of the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney's birth.

General Plot

The show centers on the titular House of Mouse, an evening theatrical club created by Mickey Mouse and some of his close friends (including such people as Gus Goose and Daisy Duck). The House hosts dinners attended by a variety of famous characters from all over space and history, from demonic abominations to schoolteachers, and has a selection of cartoons narrating the life of Mickey and friends as its main entertainment. All is not fun and games, though: despite the house's strict "no scheming or feuding" policy, villainous sorts are always stirring up trouble, especially Jafar; Pete is the landlord of the House and wants nothing more than to see it close down; and Daisy Duck's insistance to perform on-stage even though she hasn't even the inkling of a good number is constantly causing problems…

Behind the scenes

The show was created in 2001 in honor of the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney's birth, and served as the continuation of the anthology block Mickey Mouse Works, becoming the host for new Disney shorts.

The film led to the creation of two feature-lengths specials, Mickey's House of Villains and Mickey's Magical Christmas.
