Featured TV on DVD Review: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie's Bow-Tique

February 8th, 2010

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie's Bow-Tique - Buy from Amazon

Mickey Mouse is one of the oldest animated creations around. He first appeared in theaters in a short called Plane Crazy in 1928 and quickly became a staple at Disney and even one of the most recognizable "movie stars" of all time. From shorts, to feature films, to video games, to TV shows, Mickey has done it all. His latest show is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which has been released on DVD numerous times. Minnie's Bow-Tique is the latest. As usual, there are four episodes on this DVD starting with...

  1. Minnie's Pajama Party
    Minnie throws a pajama party and Mickey, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto all are there. At this party they sing and dance, eat and drink, and Goofy tells a scary story about the Silly Gilly-Gumble. It's so scary, that when unexpected guests arrive, they think it could be the Silly Gilly-Gumble.
  2. Minnie's Bow-tique
    Minnie is opening a new store to sell bows, and we are invited to the grand opening, but we have to help get things ready. After the store opens, Pete needs to go in and buy a bow for his aunt, but he's embarrassed to be seen buying something so girlie and his sneaking around causes problems.
  3. Minnie's Bee Story
    A gust of wind blows Buzz-Buzz the Bee off his sunflower and far away from his colony. Now it is up to Mickey and Minnie to help him get back, but they will need your help, of course. This is easier said than done, especially after Donald shoos him away not realizing he's Mickey and Minnie's friend.
  4. Minnie's Picnic
    It's the grand opening of the Mickey Park Picnic Grounds and Minnie is organizing a massive party inviting everyone. (Or almost everyone; Willie the Giant isn't on the list.) With such a big party, there's a lot to do to get ready. Fortunately they have help when Pete shows up early. ... Yeah, he's not much help, but at least they have Toodles and you.
As far as extras go, you can watch the episodes in interactive mode where the story pauses every once in a while and you are asked a question. You can chose active or auto mode, as well as level one or two.

The Verdict

Minnie's Bow-Tique is a very typical DVD release for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and that's a good thing if your kids are fans of the show. Bright and colorful animation combined with simple songs for kids to sing along with are the hallmarks of the episodes. The interactive mode basically doubles the amount of entertainment offered and all for a very reasonable price.
