BURBANK, Calif., February 25, 2011 – For the first time with Digital Copy, this Mickey Mouse 
Clubhouse DVD is ready for the summer fun and on-the-go adventure!  Available on May 24th, Mickey Mouse and his famous pals (Minnie, Donald, Pluto, Goofy and Daisy) join efforts to inspire preschoolers around the country to enjoy the outdoors by camping, fishing and exploring nature in Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s latest DVD release, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Great Outdoors.  

As a great value for parents and a fun, portable play set for kids, Disney has packaged Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Great Outdoors to include a DVD, a Digital Copy and a Mickey Mote –making this the ultimate Play Set. The Mickey Mote (a child-friendly handheld remote control) provides hours of interactive fun that allows kids to engage with their favorite Mickey Mouse Clubhouse characters while watching Mickey’s Great Outdoors.  And the Digital Copy allows parents to download all the episodes onto a secondary device for easy, portable on-the-go access. 

Just in time to kick off the summer, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Great Outdoors features four episodes from the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” TV show plus one all-new, never-before-seen “Mickey’s Fish Story” episode and comes packaged as a special DVD Play Set (DVD + Digital Copy + Mickey Mote) that will retail nationwide for the suggested price of $29.99 U.S. / $35.99 Canada. 

Mickey and Minnie's Jungle Safari

Mickey's Camp Out

All-New, Never-Before-Seen Bonus Episode: 
 Mickey’s Fish Story - Daisy wants to find a fishy-friend for her goldfish Goldy – and we help her find other goldfish in the Jungle where we’re aided by the mysterious conga drummin’ Jungle-Pete!  Boom-boom-bap-boom!   
 Episodes From “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” TV Show: 
 Mickey’s Camp Out - Today Mickey and his friends are going to earn Clubhouse “Camp Out Badges” by completing two tasks - setting up camp and fishing for Gummy Fish.  Everyone’s planning to camp with a “Tent Buddy”, but Donald decides to camp by himself – and he soon learns that camping with friends is much more fun than camping by yourself. 
 Mickey and Minnie’s Jungle Safari - Minnie is determined to snap a photo of the rare Hula Hibiscus that only blooms once a year.  So the sensational gang go off on a jungle safari and explore new territory to find this legendary flower.    
 Daisy in the Sky - On Balloon Day, Daisy grabs a large batch of balloons and gets literally carried away along with Minnie and Pluto, who couldn’t hold her down. Mickey, Donald and Goofy kick into high gear to save their friends: they use a Giant Candy Cane (to rescue Pluto), a Party Horn (to warn animals out of the way), a Piggy Bank (to weigh down one side of an elevator so that Mickey can reach the top of the lighthouse), and a Toy Hammer (to fix the Ferris wheel). 
 Daisy’s Grasshopper - Daisy has a new pet grasshopper named Wilbur, but the playful hoppin’ fella hops away – and we help all our Clubhouse friends hop after him and find him before the end of the day.  Boing-boing!

Disney’s Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode 
feature – an interactive “Watch and Play” feature on the DVD.  All parents have to do is program the remote control - there’s an easy and quick set-up guide in each DVD - and select the Discovery Mode feature on the menu screen.  Within minutes, kids will be easily able to respond to questions about scenes they just watched by pressing one of four color-coded buttons on the device -- a yellow star, green circle, orange triangle or blue square – to click in their responses.  Discovery Mode features include two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.  
To date, there are more than 13 Disney Preschool DVD titles for parents to choose from that can be used with the remote control. 

Our Thoughts:
I love watching my kids watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  It's such a fun show you can't help but love it.  But adding the feature of them actually being able to interact with the show is amazing.   The remote DOES take a little reading and time to set up, so I would suggest doing this before the kids even know it exists because the tiny pleading voice of your little Mickey fan will NOT help you figure it out quicker, I promise.  But I can also promise that their excitement will be totally worth it.  I really don't know how Bryan even had a clue what the brightly colored Mickey shaped contraption was for, but he did IMMEDIATELY.  And he LOVED being able to use his very own remote.  It makes me crazy that his big brothers are allowed to "play" with the regular TV remote but he isn't.  And this remote is way more exciting anyway.  I would highly recommend this as a perfect gift for the Mickey Mouse fan in your life!
