Good Morning Mickey is an animated series that aired on the Disney Channel in the 1980s. It featured classic cartoons from the Walt Disney Company, similar to Donald Duck Presents. Although Mickey Mouse shorts, without surprise, were the primary programming, additional cartoons featuring Goofy, Donald Duck, Chip 'n' Dale, Pluto, and others were also shown. It was first aired on April 18, 1983. Its time-slot for its early run was at 7:30 AM Eastern Time, making it the second program of the Disney Channel's 16 (later 18) hour programming day (hence the name).
This show was released on VHS PAL in the UK as part of a six-volume set which also each featured an episode of Welcome to Pooh Corner, The Mouse Factory, Donald Duck Presents and Mousercise. Each tape contained one Disney cartoon short.
- Volume One contains "Bone Trouble"
- Volume Two contains "Lion Down"
- Volume Three contains "Mickey's Garden"
- Volume Four contains "Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip"
- Volume Five contains "Symphony Hour"
- Volume Six contains "R'Coon Dawg"
In Australia, six more VHS tapes (for a total of twelve) were released containing additional shorts. Along with the six new tapes, one Christmas-themed one was also released:
- Volume Seven contains "Figaro and Frankie"
- Volume Twelve contains "How to Be a Detective"
- The Christmas Volume contains "Toy Tinkers"
Although Good Morning Mickey no longer airs on Disney Channel or its sister channels in the United States as of the 2000s, reruns of Good Morning Mickey were still shown on television outside the United States, especially Disney Channel outside the United States.
These modern reruns differed slightly from the original 1980s airing although still airing the same cartoons; as these have a slightly altered opening with different Disney cartoon footage in the opening (albeit the theme song still plays as normal), and most of the cartoon footage used in the altered opening are remastered prints from the Walt Disney Treasures DVDs. Also, each episode has been restored from their original 1980s television internegatives with each cartoon originally containing the altered front-and-end titles, and have the 1998 Buena Vista International logo added at the end of each episode's end credits.
