A brand new collection of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes releases on Tuesday May 24, 2011. This time Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Minnie, Pluto and the whole gang are in the Great Outdoors. This set comes with five episodes including an all new never before seen episode called Mickey’s Fish Story. The other four episodes are Mickey’s Camp Out, Mickey and Minnie’s Jungle Safari, Daisy in the Sky and Daisy’s Grasshopper. The episodes came on DVD and for the first time as a Digital Copy.
Digital copy is my format of choice these days. It is easy for me to load the show from iTunes onto my iPad so that Eva can play the episodes whenever she’d like. However, for real play there is the Mikey Mote. The Mickey Mote allows Eva to answer questions while she watches select episodes. Eva enjoys the Mickey Mote but what I’d love to see it the Mickey Mote capabilities translated into the iPad. I think that the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse has the potential for make episodes interactive. The cast is always asking kids questions like which mousekatool the gang should use. I can imagine Mickey asking the question and kids being able to tap the correct tool on the iPad.
Eva enjoyed watching these episodes when she saw them on TV and even more when she watched them with the Mickey Mote. But her favorite viewing screen is the iPad. I swear I’m going to have to get an iPad 2 just so I can have some time on my device.
Here are a couple of clips that you can see from the episodes from this set.
Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of the DVD set and a Mickey Mote. The opinions about the product including the show are 100% mine. Here is the official press release as well with more information.

ABOUT DISNEY’S MICKEY MOTE:
Disney’s Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode™ feature – an interactive “Watch & Play” feature on the DVD. All parents have to do is program the remote control – there’s an easy and quick set-up guide in each DVD – and select the Discovery Mode feature on the menu screen. Within minutes, kids will be easily able to respond to questions about scenes they just watched by pressing one of four color-coded buttons on the device — a yellow star, green circle, orange triangle or blue square – to click in their responses. Discovery Mode features include two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.
