Mickey Mouse Clubhouse coming in May

Here's a question for anyone who's reading this who has little kids: do kids today even know who Mickey Mouse is? I know Disney still maintains a talon-like hold on the subconscious of preschoolers everywhere, but I don't know if ol' Mickey gets much attention these days. Well, he may be getting more attention when Mickey Mouse Clubhouse premieres in May as part of the Disney Channel's "Playhouse Disney" block. The new computer-animated program will feature Mickey and his close pals Goofy, Donald Duck, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, and Daisy Duck as they take part in weird and fun adventures and teach basic fundamentals of learning. The theme song is written and performed by They Might Be Giants. The show debuts in primetime at 7:30 p.m. on May 5, and then rerun the next morning in its regular Saturday 9:00 a.m. timeslot.
