About Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: 
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is a children's television series, that premieres on Disney Channel, and is 
intended to help children solve specific age-appropriate problem solving skills, such as identifying shapes, 
counting, memory and cartoon physics. The series uses cognitive, social and creative learning 
opportunities. The premise of each episode centers on some kind of problem that Mickey has to solve, or 
event he needs to prepare for. To reach his goals, he frequently enlists his viewers to help him solve the 
problem by either counting out loud and/or identifying something on the television screen. 

It’s Adventure Day and Professor Von Drake is sending Mickey and pals into the far reaches of outer 
space. The team blasts off in their Clubhouse Rocket in search of Treasure Stars that will point the way to 
the Out-of-this-World Treasure, their ultimate goal. The interplanetary trip takes preschool viewers first to 
the Moon, Mars and the Rings of Saturn. Along the way, the gang gets help from friendly space aliens 
Moon Men Chip and Dale, Martian Mickey and Pluto from Pluto but they also encounter sneaky Space 
Pirate Pete, who wants the Treasure all for himself. Eventually the Clubhouse Rocket’s crew and Space  
Pirate Pete manage to become friends, and they all follow the trail of the Treasure Stars to the mysterious 
Planet Mickey where they discover the location of the Out-of-this-World Treasure. It turns out to be a 
futuristic, space age version of the Clubhouse -- the perfect meeting place for all pals across the universe!
