When the big-screen giant Disney takes over the city of Chicago, it’s time to look back on the ’80s
Chicago, IL – The Chicago Tribune and the Associated Press teamed up to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the launch of the popular animated TV series “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” with a special feature.
On April 29, 1981, the animated series debuted in the United States with an 8.2 rating and 3.1 million viewers, which is a record for a new series at the time.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse were joined by their family and friends as they explored the world of Mickey Mouse Clubhouses.
The series went on to become a hit in Canada and the United Kingdom, where it was a hit with young audiences and helped usher in a new era of animated television.
The Chicago Film Institute will release a special edition of the show on March 18, 2019, to mark the 20-year anniversary of its debut.
The film will be the first animated feature to be released in the U.S. and Canada since Disney acquired Pixar in 2018.
