Spooky fun arrives for all ages with Disney Junior’s new hour-long TV special Mickey’s Tale of Two Witches. Featuring the lovable characters from Mickey Mouse’s preschool-aimed adventures like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Mickey Mouse Funhouse, kids can enjoy a brand-new story with timeless characters. The fun begins Thursday, October 7th, at 7/6c on Disney Junior. The special will also be streaming on Disney+ beginning October 8th.
Mickey is your narrator as he and Pluto read a story on Halloween that just so happens to star characters a lot like them. The real stars of the special are the witches, Minnie the Wonderful Witch and Daisy Doozy. Set in Haunty Hills (instead of Hot Dog Hills), other residents include Count Mickula, Mummy Donald, Franken-Goof, Werewolfie Pluto and Pete the Ghost. It’s a story of friendship, teamwork and honesty.
Minnie the Wonderful and Daisy Doozy are in the middle of their final exams as they study to become witches under Witch Master Clarabelle. While they work through four tests that fill Daisy with anxiety, Count Mickula and his bandmates work on a song for the annual Halloween Boo Bash but have a hard time finding the right inspiration. With Pete the Ghost hoping to be crowned the scariest of all this season, things get complicated when he decides that stealing Clarabelle’s wand is what he needs to do to win.
Full of new songs written by Beau Black and David Goldsmith, Mickey’s Tale of Two Witches has a lot of fun with the characters and the Halloween setting. Even Cuckoo Loca gets into the spirit, appearing as “Spooky-Loca” as a bat instead of a bird. The special also gives kids a new Halloween Disney joke: What is Witch Master Clarabelle’s favorite spell? Bibbiddi-Bobbiddi-Moo!
