Are you familiar with the Disney Mickey Mouse Shorts? Not the original ones animated by Walt Disney himself, but the newer animated series that began in 2013.
If so, you may already know some of the songs Walt Disney Records just released. The media giant has just dropped a new album containing a series of songs from the more recent animated shorts – including full versions previously unavailable.
The shorts aired from 2013 to 2019 and served as inspiration for Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, as well as the AquaMouse attraction on the new ship Disney Wish. The new style brought back the classic character synonymous with the Walt Disney Company and re-introduced him to a new generation.
The animated shorts are available for streaming on Disney Plus.
