A Disney DVD Collection I Would Buy

I hope that Disney DVD is considering to release season sets of "House of Mouse".
The series was a revamp of "Mickey Mouse Works" that featured Mickey and the gang running a cartoon club that entertained various Disney characters from the classic animated shorts and features.
The series ran from 2001 until 2004 for 52 episodes.
Personally, I thought this was one of the last great traditionally animated shows for television. The cartoons and gags were very enjoyable and cartoony.
The creators of both "Mouse Works" and "House" were Tony Craig & Roberts Gannaway. They worked previously on "The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa", "Hercules: the series" and "101 Dalmations: the series".
The people who worked on this show really kept the characters true to their personalities and gave them a modern makeover.
The premire episode is available as a bonus feature on "Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in the House of Mouse". The other DVD release is "Mickey's House of Villians".
I hope Disney DVD has this series in mind for a future release. All the classic characters make cameos in this show, so there is a little bit of everything that the audience will like.

Oh, indeedy. This is, was and always will be, one of my fave Disney Shows ever made. So many crossovers with so many clever gags and concepts, as well as bringing back a few Disney Classics in original HOM cartoons. "Lil' Bad Wolf", anyone? :)

I still love "Pete's House of Villians". Some beautiful animation there - with a style that isn't seen again in any other HOM episode, actually - and showing Pete as his funniest since his "One-Man Show" episode! :D

"Pete's House of Villians" is my favorite episode!
That one episode used a style that was only used that one time.
It really brought the characters to life.
My favorite line is after Ursala zaps Pete, "..And don't spill any ink on the way out!!"

House of Mouse is definetley a show I would like to see on dvd. Call it the completist in me, but it would be great to add this to my Disney collection.
It was great to see characters who are not normally in the same scene together interacting with each other in this format.

Oh, yes. Now there's a good idea. Disney should release all the episodes of "House of Mouse" on DVD. Maybe we could write to Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment about it. Their address is on the back covers of the DVDs they release.
