Open the door to Mickey's Clubhouse, and unwrap some holiday fun for the entire family.
Mickey and pals Donald Duck, Goofy, and Minnie Mouse share three adventures in Mickey Saves Santa
, an engaging, computer-animated video that is mostly set within Mickeys Teletubbies
-like dome of a home. The title story finds Mrs. Claus imploring Mickey's posse to help Santa down from Mistletoe Mountain, where he's stuck and can't deliver toys to all the children of the world. A second episode concerns a silly game of hide-and-seek, in which Donald proves a surprise master. Finally, Goofy needs help from Mickey in getting a lost baby bird back to its mother. The bright, chipper animation is full of little surprises, such as entire sections of Mickey's house that flip over, revealing sets beneath sets. Like Dora the Explorer
, the action sometimes stops so Mickey can ask young viewers which of several "Mousketools" is the right one to complete a certain task. Bonus features include the "Hot Dog" dance-along and "Mickeys Picture Puzzle Game," in which kids can help unscramble a mixed-up picture. --Tom Keogh
