Just when Mickey's sorcerer hat is knocked off, Aladdin escapes from the kitchen, flying on the magic carpet and gives Daisy Duck the magical lamp. There are some good ones in there! The rest of the villains run away and the House of Mouse is once again restored. The second asset was seeing all those villains, Jafar steals the show, but Ursula, Chernabog, Cruella DeVil, Captain Hook and Hades are also delightful to watch. It was fun and entertaining, while being nothing groundbreaking. One was seeing those shorts, How to Haunt a House was hilarious, Donald and the Gorilla was delightful for a first time viewer and Lonesome Ghosts is a Halloween classic as is Trick or Treat.
My favorite part was the Trick or Treat with Donald and his three nephews, and Hazel the witch, when she zaps Donald a few times. I especially liked Jafar's entrance from The Cave of Wonders, talk about a stylish entrance. Just for the record, I love the show House of Mouse, it is one of those shows with a great concept and makes me feel all nostalgic. Even Mickey has a funny cameo. The heroes, princesses and other Disney characters are trapped in the kitchen while Mickey and several others are thrown out into the street. Soon, the villains take over the house and kick out Mickey, Donald and Goofy.
And I also felt they could have done much more with the ending which felt rushed. The film is too short at only an hour and a quarter or so, and as much as the shorts were so wonderful to watch too much time was spent until the main focus of the story was even introduced. However, Villains has the upper hand when it comes to the in-between segments. Overall, while nothing groundbreaking it is a very entertaining film. I still think the greatest draw is the animated shorts. Mickey's House of Villains had a really interesting idea and made the most of it. After another two cartoons, Mickey dresses in his sorcerer outfit from Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 and challenges Jafar to a magical duel using fireballs.
I definitely enjoy the House of Mouse series, but both these movies just seem to drag on a little too long. Other than It's Our House Now, two assets stood out. Synopsis The villains from the popular animated Disney films are gathered at the House of Mouse with plans to take over. . It was nice to see Maleficent and the Wicked Queen as well, but they should have been given more to say.
Jafar has a trick in store for the usual heroes of the House, but the villains have to wait until midnight for him to unleash it. Flaws aside, the animation is great I feel and sticks to the style of the show. It's all up to Mickey and his friends to overthrow evil and return the House of Mouse to normal--or as close to normal as it get's. This cartoon resurrects the classic Goofy How-to cartoons and gives it a paranormal twist. My suggestion is to check out the whole thing once, and from then on, watch the cartoons and segments you enjoy the most. Soon, the villains take over the house and kick out Mickey, Donald and Goofy.
The dialogue is good, humorous often, and Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald are great to watch. Dance of the Goofys was quite cute and funny, and I enjoyed Mickey and Minnie's take on Hansel and Gretel especially for the use of Danse Macabre. It's all up to Mickey and his friends to overthrow evil and return the House of Mouse to normal--or as close to normal as it get's. The villains from the popular animated Disney films are gathered at the House of Mouse with plans to take over. It should be in every Disney library.
Mickey's House of Villains does have its problems though. They witness the House's name being changed to the House of Villains. This is one video a Disney fan can not be without. These are the type of cartoons that Goofy is best at as he bumbles and stumbles along trying to scare Donald, who definitely added even more humor to this cartoon. A narrator instructs Goofy and the viewers on how to properly act like a ghost.
It is Halloween night at the House of Mouse, and a lot of villains are showing up. The story for Villains was much better and interesting as the Villains tried to take over the House of Mouse. The music is a delight as well, the incidental music is really good, but the song It's Our House Now was not only catchy and entertaining it was the highlight of the film. Daisy hands it to Mickey who uses the lamp to suck Jafar into it. So overall, Mickey's House of Villains has its entertaining moments, but it's nothing too extraordinary.
I thought all the cartoons showed on the Christmas special were great, and I thought most of the ones on Villains were great too. However, that is really just a small part of this movie. . . .
