-> ''"Mouseka-hey, mouseka-hi, mouseka-ho! Mouseka-ready, mouseka-set, here we go!"''

''Mickey Mouse Clubhouse'' started airing in 2006, and is the most recent full-length TV show produced by Creator/{{Disney|Channel}} to star its iconic character, MickeyMouse. The show's format is targeted at pre-school children, and teaches basic skills such as counting, memory and [[ArtisticLicensePhysics cartoon physics]]. Other recurring characters are MinnieMouse, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, Daisy Duck, WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} and WesternAnimation/{{Pluto|ThePup}}. Almost as frequently, episodes feature Clarabelle Cow, WesternAnimation/{{Pete}} the Cat and Professor Ludwig von Drake. It is currently the longest running Disney show, currently in its 10th year.

The premise of each episode centers on some kind of problem that Mickey has to solve, or event he needs to prepare for. To accomplish these fairly mundane goals, he has a semi-intelligent flying robot called Toodles, who can be summoned from anywhere to produce one of four Mousekatools. He frequently [[BreakingTheFourthWall "talks"]] [[FakeInteractivity to the viewers]] to enlist their help as well, or to demand they count something with him.

In addition to the regular episodes of the show that fill a 30-minute block of programming, a few hour-long episodes have been produced and released on DVD. One example is ''Mickey's Adventures in [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Wonderland]]'', which is (oddly enough) about Mickey and Donald trying to find a runaway cuckoo bird... it just happens to ''take place'' in Wonderland.
-----
!!This show provides examples of:
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Princess Pete in "Sir Goofs-a-Lot".
* AbsenteeActor: Mickey Mouse and Toodles were the two characters to appear in every episode.
** Minnie Mouse was missing from 4 episodes: "Goofy's Bird", "Donald and the Beanstalk", "Mickey Goes Fishing", and "Donald the Frog Prince"
** Donald Duck was missing from 2 episodes: "Mickey Goes Fishing"
** Daisy Duck was missing from 3 episodes: "Goofy's Bird", "Donald and the Beanstalk" and "Mickey Goes Fishing"
** Goofy was missing from 1 episode: "Donald the Frog Prince"
** Pluto was missing from 5 episodes: "Donald and the Beanstalk", "Daisy's Dance", "Minnie Red Riding Hood", "Sleeping Minnie" and "Goofy's Petting Zoo"
* AllCGICartoon
* AlliterativeName: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Clarabelle Cow. Several objects, such as the handy helpers, wind up with this naming convention as well.
* ArtEvolution: The character models and animations are much cleaner in post-2007 episodes than they were in the show's first couple of years.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Several times.
** In "Pluto's Bubble Bath", Mickey and Pluto [[FloatingInABubble get trapped inside bubbles and helplessly float away as a result, defying gravity.]]
*** In the same episode, the bubbles enter low orbit and Mickey frets because [[ArtisticLicenseAstronomy nearby]] [[SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay stars]] might pop the bubbles. They are rescued by their friends in a propellor plane, which is also capable of flying in low orbit.
*** Not that Mickey had anything to worry about. His friends in the plane can [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace breathe in space]], and Mickey himself is shown to do so in another episode.
*** To be fair, Mickey never said he was worried about air. The long fall might have been more of a consideration.
*** Hot air balloons have been shown to fly this high as well, as shown in "Donald's Big Balloon Race".
** Mickey and Donald [[SolidClouds walk on clouds]] in a ''Literature/JackAndTheBeanstalk''-themed episode, and Willie the Giant goes on to become a recurring character, resulting in more impossible cloudwalking.
** Physics go completely out the window when, in "Space Captain Donald", Minnie manages to bounce Pluto's ball all the way to the moon. [[spoiler: And Donald does this vice-versa later in the episode.]]
* AudienceShift: From previous Mickey projects. This makes sense when you consider that Mickey himself barely appeared in any recent cartoon, making a paradox where kids only knew about him as Disney's iconic mascot... and that's it.
* {{Balloonacy}}: "Daisy in the Sky" has Daisy, Minnie and Pluto carried off by a handful of balloons. {{Lampshaded}} by Ludwig declaring "She's broken Newton's law!"
* CallARabbitASmeerp: In Martian Mickey's world, a hot dog is known as a "yumblatz".
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the earliest episodes, like "Mickey Goes Fishing" and "The Big Balloon Race", Pete acts like a huge {{Jerkass}} for no reason or provocation. Most episodes now have him as more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and one of Mickey's friends whenever he's not playing the DesignatedVillain.
* CheatedAngle: Mickey's ears (and Minnie's) are always perfectly head-on to the audience. If you watch closely when they turn their heads, you can even see the ears sliding around on top of their heads to maintain the same perspective.
* TheChewToy: Donald Duck is usually the one to get hit by a random object such as cake frosting. He sometimes lampshades this by saying "Why does this always happen to me?"
* ColorCodedCharacters: In almost every episode, Mickey's in the red shorts, Minnie's dressed in pink, Daisy's in purple, Donald's got the blue threads, Pluto's orange, and Goofy's sporting a green hat.
** Their space outfits are the aforementioned colors.
* CrazyPrepared: The Mousekedoer seems to always have the right tools for [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands whatever twists and turns]] the episode's plot will take later on.
* CrossReferencedTitles: "Goofy Baby" and "Goofy Babysitter", with opposite premises. [[BabiesMakeEverythingBetter Both with babies.]]
* CuteKitten: Figaro's most recent appearances are in this show.
* DancePartyEnding: Every episode ends with the main characters doing the Hot Dog dance to a song with [[PainfulRhyme inspired lyrics]] such as "We've got ears, it's time for cheers."
** Made even more painful by the fact that it's being performed by Music/TheyMightBeGiants.
* DistaffCounterpart: "Space Adventure" introduces a Girl Toodles working for Pirate Pete.
* DoAnythingRobot: Toodles has many contraptions built in - for getting around and doing various things - when he's not serving as an iPod for Mouseketools... and never mind the fact that some of those tools springing from Toodles may be [[{{Hammerspace}} as huge as a space rocket]].
* EdutainmentShow: And for anyone over the age of seven it can be a bit painful to sit through.
* {{Egopolis}}: Almost everything is named after Mickey, even if it's nominally someone else's.
** Frequently lampshaded by Donald: "It's always about Mickey."
* EverybodyDoTheEndlessLoop: The Hot Dog dance.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Coco the Coconutty Monkey
* {{Expositron 9000}}: The Mousekadoer computer.
* TheFaceless: Toodles, for the first three seasons.
* FakeInteractivity: The cast fequently ask the audience for help.
* FemaleFelineMaleMutt: Inverted with Bella and Figaro. Of course, there is also Pluto, who is a Male Mutt.
* FountainOfYouth: "Goofy Baby" sees Goofy accidentally turned into a baby; and in "Goofy Babysitter" all the main characters (EXCEPT Goofy) are turned into babies.
* FurryConfusion: In the episode, "Donald's Ducks," Donald is shown with normal ducks.
** To add insult to injury, he is flying an airplane rather than flying like a normal duck alongside the other ducks.
** Also, Ludwig Von Drake is shown flying using an inflatable jumpsuit rather than like a normal duck.
* FurryDenial: In another ''Mickey Mouse Clubhouse'' episode, Donald is shown swimming like a dog or human as opposed to like a duck.
** Goofy is explicitly referred to as a dog by Willie, but no explanation or even reaction is given for the fact that Pluto is, too.
* FurryReminder: For a plethora of characters.
** Pete is acknowledged to be a cat.
*** In two episodes, Daisy and Minnie toss a ball of yarn to Pete and he gets distracted by it both times.
** In another episode, Willie calls Mickey, Donald, and Goofy a mouse, a duck, and a dog respectively.
** Clarabelle's ''constant'' "MOO" puns.
* GoKartingWithBowser: Pete (historically an evil character in the classic cartoons) sometimes plays the adversary, and sometimes he's just one of the gang.
* HeelFaceTurn: When Pete is the episode's designated antagonist, rarely does he ''not'' end up undergoing this. Also [[spoiler: Mega Mort/Mortimer Mouse]] in "Superhero Adventure."
** HeelRealization: What usually brings Pete around is a realization about how wrong he was to do whatever it was he was doing, most likely followed by an apology in the exact word "I'm sorry I was so sneaky."
* ImpactSilhouette: Clarabelle as a superhero crashes through Mickey's door in an episode.
* InsistentTerminology: In "Doctor Daisy, MD (Medical Duck)" it's constantly mentioned that she's a ''pretend doctor'' trying to earn her ''pretend doctor sticker'' by ''pretending'' to treat her ''pretend patients''.
* IntelligibleUnintelligible: Donald Duck, for some people.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Donald and Pete.
* JustForPun: The "Sheep" episode, where Goofy cleans out his shoe, only for three horns to fall out of it. It's a shoehorn.
* LampshadeHanging: Happens quite a bit on the show with stuff like Goofy not saying "Mousketools" correctly or Donald getting hit by a random object.
* LighterAndSofter: In most of his incarnations, Pete is an outright villain or at the very least, a major {{Jerkass}}. Here, though, he's a genuinely nice guy, if a of an bit arrogant blowhard and regularly greedy and sneaky in stories, where he always ends up seeing the error of his ways and coming around anyway.
* LongRunner: The series has been running since 2006.
* MagicalIncantation: "To make the clubhouse appear, we get to say the magic words: ''Meeska! Mooska! Mickey Mouse!''"
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Mickey Mouse Can Breathe in Space]]: Done in "Donald's Big Balloon Race" and "Pluto's Bubble Bath". Batman was SO 1939...
* MickeyMousing: You can hear a slide whistle crescendo whenever the audience is asked to stand up.
* MythologyGag: The "Hot Dog" dance is a reference to Mickey's first spoken words in the 1929 cartoon "The Karnival Kid".
** Heck, even the MagicalIncantation for the clubhouse borrows from the original MickeyMouseClub series' "Mousekartoon" segment, while the Toon Plane is straight out of the classic short, "Plane Crazy".
** In the recent direct-to-video episode, "Mickey's Monster Musical", Werewolf Pete's TransformationSequence leaves him in his overalls with one suspender hanging -- all he's lacking is a bent stovepipe hat to complete the Big Bad Wolf's outfit from "Three Little Pigs".
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Figaro's and Mr. Pettibone's designs are not exactly that nonstandard, but they look stiff and awkward compared to the other character's designs.
* OnlySixFaces: Whenever the cast visits somewhere other than the Clubhouse's immediate surroundings, like outer space or Transylvania, they typically run into [[RecycledInSpace Space Mickey]] or the like rather than completely new characters.
* PaperThinDisguise: Pete sometimes wears these.
* PreciousPuppies: Bella, Clarabelle's puppy.
* RhymesOnADime: In one episode, when the clubhouse's "silly switch" gets jammed, causing everyone and everything to act all silly, Mickey is affected in that he can ''only'' speak in rhyme, practically against his will. This is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]]:
-->'''Mickey:''' I didn't know I could rhyme, but now I do it all the time!
* RunningGag: Goofy's inability to pronounce the word "Mouseketools".
* SayMyName[=/=]IncrediblyLamePun: Several objects in the show have the word "mouse" glued onto their names, usually by way of the baleful syllable "ka". The most prominent example, "Mousekatools" is a play on words of "Mouseketeer", the title given to the real life kids who appeared on ''TheMickeyMouseClub''. "Mouseketeer" is, of course, itself a play on "[[Literature/TheThreeMusketeers Musketeer]]".
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: In "Mickey's Camp Out", Donald has this kind of attitude when, after trying to set up a tent with Goofy, he decides to walk out on Mickey and company and camp alone.
* ShoutOut: In the race episode, Pete finds the road blocked by a pile of rubber duckies. He exclaims [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland "That's the third largest pile of rubber duckies I've ever seen!"]]
* SolveTheSoupCans: The way that the Mousekatools are used can be pretty bizarre. In one episode, Mickey has to put gumballs in a gas pump before he can fill up his car. In another, he has to put numbered blocks in the right order to unlock his front door.
* SpaceWhaleAesop: Share with your friends, or you'll get carried off into the air by all the balloons you took. [[BrokenAesop Even though Daisy spent the whole episode going "Wheeeeeeeeee!"]]
* SpinOff: ''WesternAnimation/MinniesBowToons''; ''Mickey's Mousekercise''
* StockFootage: The opening scenes, the Mousekadoer song, and the Hot Dog Dance. The first two stick out like a sore thumb in newer episodes, where the audio for those segments was redone but the animation wasn't tweaked to fit the new audio, resulting in some serious lip-syncing issues in places.
* StockScream: The show frequently makes use of the Goofy Holler... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin for obvious reasons]].
* ThankingTheViewer: "Aww, thanks for stopping by!"
* Music/TheyMightBeGiants: The opening theme song, as well as "Hot Dog" are performed by them.
* ThreeAmigos: Mickey is often paired up with Minnie and either Goofy or Daisy.
* TokenHuman: Willie the Giant.
* TuxedoAndMartini: Daisy Duck moonlights as a secret agent in a few episodes, which usually results in parody of the ''Film/JamesBond'' style of spies.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Since Pete regularly plays the bad guy in big adventure stories, nearly nobody was expecting [[spoiler: Mortimer Mouse]] to be given a role as the true villain of "Superhero Adventure", especially since at first it seems as if it's Pete as usual.
* WhiteGloves: EVERYWHERE. Mickey might as well be the trope namer.
* "YouCanSayThatAgain: [[AvertedTrope But don't.]]" Said word for word by Ludwig Von Drake in "Space Adventure".
