MICKEY'S #1 GAL STARS IN HER OWN DISNEY JUNIOR
SHORT-FORM SERIES "MINNIE'S BOW-TOONS," PREMIERING
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14 ON DISNEY CHANNEL
Minnie Mouse showcases her passion for fashion in her own Disney Junior short-form series "Minnie's Bow-Toons," launching with a week of new episodes MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14 – SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19 (8:55 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel and DisneyJunior.com. Following the linear premiere on Disney Channel, fans can log on to DisneyJunior.com/Minnie to see an exclusive first look at the next day's full episode.
Based on a popular episode of Disney Junior's hit Emmy-nominated series "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse," the new series finds Minnie and her good friend Daisy Duck running Minnie's Bow-Tique, a specialty shop which stocks only bows and bowties. No matter what the occasion, Minnie has a bow (or bow-tie) for every situation, whether it's using a rubber bow to fix some leaky pipes or shredded bows to make pom poms for a cheerleader.
In honor of Minnie's birthday weekend, Disney Junior will air a block-long marathon featuring the new shorts and Minnie-centric episodes of "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" on Friday, November 18 (8:55 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., ET/PT) and Saturday, November 19 (6:30 – 9:00 a.m., ET/PT).
