YMMV / House of Mouse

The House segments:
  • Ear Worm:
  • Fanfic Fuel: With the many Disney movies and TV shows having come out since the show's ending, many people who write fanfics or draw fanart about this show often write stories involving characters from movies such as Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, and others being involved in the hijinks at the House of Mouse.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight
    • Walt Disney has on record stated that he saw Mickey and Minnie as actors that could play any role needed. Several decades later we get a show where everyone in the Disney realm is an Animated Actor.
    • In the episode Pluto Saves The Day, Goofy said he likes Doc. So much so, that his voice actor BECAME Doc.
    • One of the band names used by Huey, Dewey, and Louie was Quackwerk. Quackwerks would later be the name of a company prominently featured in the Darkwing Duck comic book.
    • In Jiminy Cricket's guest episode, he uses Belle and the Beast as an example of "sometimes you won't (have children)". There is now a live-action Disney Channel Original Movie called Descendants, and one of the main characters is the son of the Beast and Belle.
  • Ho Yay:
    • At the start of the Valentine's Day episode, Pumbaa, taking Mickey's "grab your sweetie and give 'em a smooch" line seriously, puckers his lips, but Timon tells him, "Don't even think about it!"
    • That doubles up as Hilarious in Hindsight, as a few years later Timon's voice actor Nathan Lane came out.
  • Magnificent Bastard: The Phantom Blot.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • This show may have originated the "No One (Verbs The Noun) Like Gaston!" meme.
    • "Nobody breaks his leg like Gaston!" Which he then follows up by demonstrating.
    • "Nobody orders decaf like Gaston!"
    • "Nobody makes faces in spoons like Gaston!"
    Timon: "Actually, no one asked the opinion of Gaston."
    • Subverted when one of the characters mentioned shutting up. Gaston launches into it before saying "Nevermind".
  • The Scrappy: Shelby Turtle, the annoying little hellion and Karma Houdini that has gotten away with tormenting Donald and Mickey, is this in both the House of Mouse segments and the Mouseworks toons. His mother is also definitely one as well for never realizing how much trouble her son causes Donald.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Several of the songs. To clarify, if you happen to be a Disney fanatic, many of the songs will sound very familiar.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Plenty of characters are underutilized. Despite Jim Cummings doing regular duty as Pete, Pooh and Tigger for example spend pretty much all their appearances mute.
  • Villain Decay:
    • Chernabog...afraid of the dark.
    • The Headless Horseman, like Gaston he was pretty much turned into a living Running Gag, his was that he had no head and can't speak. Really sucks the scary out of him.
  • What an Idiot: A minor one, but one has to wonder why they keep Gus Goose in their employ given his tendency to eat the food meant for the customers. Even by comedic toon standards, that seems counter-productive.
  • The Woobie:
    • Dennis the Duck when Donald says that he "doesn't think he's funny". Since he idolizes Donald and being funny is literally his reason for living, he's sent into a suicidal Heroic B.S.O.D.. Don't worry, he gets better. Doesn't hurt that he's so adorable looking.
    • Goofy in "Goofy's Valentine Date" when he realizes that he doesn't have a special one for Valentine's Day. Fortunately, it turns out that Clarabelle likes him.

The Mouseworks shorts:
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • The aforementioned CGI scene from "computer.don".
    • What about in "Locksmiths" when Goofy names all the types of keys on his keychain?
  • Foe Yay: Happens when Mickey accidentally sends Mortimer a sweet fax that was meant for Minnie in "Mickey's Mix-Up".
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • Arguably counts for the Phantom Blot in the episode he became "The Phantom Rainbow", as he makes his first appearance in a video game. The game involves running colors but it's more... grim, in comparison.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • One Von Drake short has the professor invent a bathtub teleporter.
    • "Organ Donors" features a villain trying to take Mickey's heart.
    • "How to Be Groovy, Cool and Fly" parodies Star Wars in the 1970s segment. Disney bought Lucasfilm, and by extension, the Star Wars franchise 11 years later.
  • Magnificent Bastard: The Phantom Blot.
  • Older Than They Think: Many people are unaware that the Mickey MouseWorks shorts aired as their own show before being used as segments on House of Mouse. Somewhat justified due to many MouseWorks shorts making their debut on House of Mouse without airing on Mickey MouseWorks previously.
  • Villain Decay: Not Pete for once, no, this position goes to the Phantom Blot, who went from an eponymous mastermind, to someone who was tired of his old cloak because it had no color. Although he arguably gets his stride back in his third appearance in House of Mouse.
