* ActorAllusion: The intro shows Little John and Baloo sharing a laugh. Both were voiced by the same actor in their films.
* BannedEpisode: The Mickey [=MouseWorks=] short "Minnie Takes Care of Pluto" was pulled from the airwaves because of the disturbing premise of Pluto having a paranoid fear of Minnie trying to kill him and a scene were Pluto is in Hell. As a result, it is one of the few [=MouseWorks=] shorts to never be used in an episode of House of Mouse.
* ChannelHop: The show was dropped from ABC's line-up after airing the first 26 episodes; the remaining episodes premiered on Toon Disney.
* DuelingShows / DuelingGames: ''KingdomHearts'' came out in 2002, featuring another Disney crossover, albeit one with a very different premise.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Rooooood Roddy (from ThePriceIsRight) as Mic.
** And most of the original voice actors from the movies reprise their roles for old time's sake. Yes, that is James Woods as [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades]]. And Jodi Benson as [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]]. And Creator/GilbertGottfried as [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Iago]]. And Kathryn Beaumont as Disney/{{Alice| In Wonderland}}, and [[{{Dinosaurs}} Florence Stanley]] as [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Mrs. Packard]].
** There's also several voice actors in this show such as Creator/CoreyBurton, Creator/JimCummings, RobPaulsen, and TressMacNeille.
** Creator/JohnCleese was the narrator for a few shorts. Mainly the ones where an InteractiveNarrator was needed, such as the Nutcracker short.
** Mrs. Turtle is [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory2 Mrs. Potato Head.]]
** Pluto's shoulder angel and devil are, respectively, [[Creator/MontyPython Eric Idle]] and [[Creator/PennAndTeller Penn Jillette]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The only [=DVDs=] available are of the clip show movies "Mickey's House of Villains" and "Christmas at the House of Mouse".
* MissingEpisode: "Minnie Takes Care of Pluto" and "Pluto gets the Paper: Vending Machine" are the only two [=MouseWorks=] shorts to never be used in House of Mouse, the former because of its disturbing content and the latter because of unknown reasons.
* NonSingingVoice: RobPaulsen for Hades in House of Villains. despite the fact that JamesWoods did his own singing for the character in HerculesTheAnimatedSeries.
* TheOtherDarrin: Both subverted & played straight. Many of the newer Disney characters were voiced by the actual actors from the films (although some, like Timon, played this straight), while of course, characters from older movies had to have replacements (seeing as how pretty much all of those actors are dead). An interesting inversion is that Alice, during her brief speaking cameo in the show, was actually voiced by Kathryn Beaumont, who played her in the original film (and was in her early 60s by that point).
** AkiraKamiya has retired Iago at this point and so ToruOkawa voices him in the Japanese dub.
* RecycledScript: "Mickey's Airplane Kit" and "Car Washers" are rehashes of the black-and-white shorts "WesternAnimation/PlaneCrazy" and "Mickey's Service Station".
* This Walt Disney Television Animation production was created apparently to commemorate and nearly coincide with Walt Disney's birthday.
