"The Hot Dog Song" is a song that makes the dance Mickey and the gang do at the end of every episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Every character has a different dance move he or she does to the song.

It is performed by They Might Be Giants. It echoes Mickey's first spoken words in the 1929 short The Karnival Kid. The song has been released in an extended form on at least two different albums: Playhouse Disney: Music Play Date and Disney Junior DJ Shuffle. The version on Playhouse Disney: Music Play Date runs 2:27, while it was shortened to 1:43 for the DJ Shuffle version.


They Might Be Giants: Hot dog!

Synthetic voice: Hot dog!

They Might Be Giants: Hot dog!

They Might Be Giants and Mickey Mouse: Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog
Now we got ears, it's time for cheers

They Might Be Giants: Hot dog, hot dog, the problem's solved
Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog!

Grab my boots and a sandwich
Let's start a parade
Get the coconut drumkit for Daisy to play

They Might Be Giants: Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog
We're takin' off, we're dancin' now
Hot dog, leapfrog and holy cow
Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog

They Might Be Giants: Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog
It's a brand-new day, what you waitin' for?
Get up, stretch out, stomp on the floor
Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog

They Might Be Giants and Mickey Mouse: Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog
We're splittin' the scene, we're full of beans
So long for now from Mickey Mouse

Mickey: That's me!

They Might Be Giants: And the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!

Mickey: See ya real soon! (Season 1) Aww, thanks for stoppin' by! (Season 2-present)


  • How everyone performs the dance:
    • Mickey: Swings his body back and forth while swaying his arms and kicking his feet out.
    • Minnie: Similar to Mickey, but swings out her arms while kicking her heels.
    • Goofy/Pete: Flaps his arms like a bird while squatting up and down and kicking out his legs.
    • Pluto: Squats up and down while leaning from side to side.
    • Donald: Swings his arms back and fourth while hopping on his feet.
    • Daisy: Sways her arms side to side and leans to the opposite side.
    • Clarabelle: Puts arms down in place like a penguin and quietly marches in place. She also mimics Goofy's dance.
  • In some episodes the recurring characters in the show would also join such as Pete, Clarabelle, Ludwig Von Drake, Mortimer Mouse, Chip and Dale and Toodles (who permanently joins the gang in the dance on season 4 and onwards and leaves with them after he flies out the mouskedoer)
  • In Season 1, the dance was referred to as the "Mouskedance".
  • During the interruption In Season 1, Mickey would give a short recap of the Mouskatools used in the episode. From Season 2 onwards, whoever was the main character of the episode would thank the viewer.
  • This song was played on Mickey's Monster Musical. The first part is being played when they dance. This time, Clarabelle mimics Donald's dance. The last of the song is being played with the dialogues from the cast a la Rebecca Sugar's Love Like You playing in Steven Universe.
  • In Season 1, the characters do a pose, then do their dances (it's dancing to the closing theme) as the credits roll, making it the last of the celebration. It is followed by the WDTA/Playhouse Disney logos.
