** It's just how people say the title. I mean, a lot of people say ''Rocky Horror'' instead of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' or ''ScoobyDoo'' instead of ''Scooby Doo, Where Are You?'' (Or any of the numerous spinoffs).

Added DiffLines:

** Also, when Mickey had gotten the lamp, the other villains immediately ran away like cowards.


Added DiffLines:

** Maybe he just going along with the villains because he was planning on chowing down on Hook when he least expected it at some point?


Added DiffLines:

** That, or maybe the club just has some sort of side entrance for larger characters? But we just don't see it? Maybe?


** Disney licensing has some thing against mixing television and movie characters together. It's why KingdomHearts is the way it is.

* I don't like that, in this show, Huey, Dewey and Louie were voiced by the same guy doing Donald's voice. Because of them sounding exactly like Donald, it tends to confuse me if I'm looking the other way while the boys are talking. Granted, that's how it was done back in the days of the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts, but by this time, Russi Taylor had done the trio's voices on ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and was still doing them in the direct-to-video movies and video games, and her voice for them sounds clearly different from Donald's. So why did she not reprise their voices on this show? Heck, in the ''House'' segments, the boys even seem to have their ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' designs, so why have them voiced by ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' voice actors?
* Why does Wiki/TheOtherWiki always, ''always'' refer to this show by its full title with the "Disney's" preface? Practically every cartoon show Disney has made has "Disney's" prefacing the title, but we never refer to, say, ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' as ''Disney's WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' in casual conversation. And even Disney seems to have this same conceit as well. What makes ''House of Mouse'' any different when it comes to being referenced in conversation or articles?

* What bothered me about ''House Of Villains'' was that they listed Tick-Tock (the Crocodile from PeterPan) as one of the villains. Um, didn't the writers/producers/etc. of the show forget that Tick-Tock was a ''subversion'' of the ReptilesAreAbhorrent trope. He's pretty much ChaoticNeutral or TrueNeutral (He's not evil, just hungry... which still makes him dangerous, but not for any downright "evil" reasons) and is Captain Hook's (the ''real'' villain of the classic story) mortal enemy (Possibly even more so than Peter Pan himself).

* At least in Donald's case, Scrooge doesn't work at the House of Mouse, and neither does Grandma Duck.

** Also, the comic books have featured several other characters that don't work there, like Eega Beeva and others.

Added DiffLines:

** How is this even a question? There are so many obvious ways for Monstro to get in there.
*** The Genie, Jafar, Fairy Godmother, Blue Fairy, etc. simply poofed him into the building (why I'm not sure; Genie is the one most likely to do something so seemingly random and counterproductive)
*** Someone simply lifted up a wall, toon-style
*** Mad Madam Mim, Merlin, the Fairy Godmother, etc turned Monstro into something smaller that enabled him to enter, and he regained his usual form later.

Added DiffLines:

** Plus, opening the floodgates to other media outside the animated movies and classic old shorts would risk the danger of the "trendy" characters usurping the show from the movie ones it's supposed to be focused on.

* There are actually several shorts created for this show, but were unfortunately cut shortly after being finished. The most famous one of these is the one about [[PlutothePup Pluto]] being left behind at Minnie's house while [[MickeyMouse Mickey]] is on vacation, and thus prompting [[GoodAngelBadAngel his conscience]] to threaten him into thinking that Minnie's out to get him. Why weren't any of those shorts aired in the first place? Is it because the aforementioned short's plot showed Pluto having a nightmare about Minnie burying him alive and later going to Hell?

* Just why ''did'' this show never have any cameos by Disney TV Animation characters (excluding PepperAnn in the first episode)? Did the staff have something against those characters? Was it the same kind of xenophobia exhibited by the guy who wrote ''Disney Dossiers'' (a book that also ignores the TV Animation characters)? Or was the show written by people who didn't have access to the episodes of the other cartoons?

Added DiffLines:

** I think it's just a mistake. There ''is'' a somewhat important event of the Blot's history that took place in 1947, but it's something utterly obscure, that the writers had little way of knowing before the Internet era: it's in 1947 that the Blot's debut appearance was translated in Italian for the first time[[note]] It's a bigger deal than you'd think, as Italy is one of the countries that produce the greatest amount of Disney comics and was the first to re-introduce the Blot as a recurring villain. [[/note]] But really, I think it was just a goof.
* In ''Ask Von Drake'', how on Earth did Monstro get inside the House ? The door's not all that wide, certainly not wide enough for a ''whale'' to come in. (Besides, one could question what a a non-anthropomorphic ''whale'' is doing in the House of Mouse anyway it's a animal, it can hardly enjoy watching the cartoons or something , but let's give it a free pass on that).

Added DiffLines:

* At least in Donald's case, Scrooge doesn't work at the House of Mouse, and neither does Grandma Duck.
