Wochit 1:00 mins

Mickey Mouse makes his return to 2D animation next week with the debut of a new shortform series of comedy cartoons featuring homages to the past. Each cartoon short finds Mickey in a different modern setting -- including Santa Monica, New York, Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, Venice and the Alps, where he faces a silly situation, a quick complication and an escalation of physical and visual gags. Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto also make appearances. Thank Britney Spears' Smurf-obsessed sons for her latest single Ooh La La, which plays over the closing credits of the upcoming film The Smurfs 2. Mumford & Sons Bassist Ted Dwane announced on the band's website that he is out of the hospital following his brain surgery last week.
