All but one of the tracks have been posted on YouTube at the moment (only Mouskemania remains to be put up), and boy do they bring the memories back. I rate this in a dead heat with its predecessor Mickey Mouse Disco as the company's best record release, and indeed also among the best children's albums of all time (and I mean true children's album in that they can be enjoyed by everyone of all ages regardless of the target audience), for there are no duds on it at all. Sure, many songs may be dated back to the 80s (Donald's "Digital Duck," for instance, and the completely 80s overuse of synthesizers on "Minnie Mouse"), but that really adds to the charm, I think, on repeat viewing, and the tracks are still thoroughly enjoyable to listen to; doesn't the title track just get you up and going, for one? And how often, these days especially, would you get a song for a side character like Gyro Gearloose on a major release? The company should consider going back to this kind of thinking if it wants to recapture the wider audience it once held.
