Disney is finally pulling Mickey Mouse out of the after-school TV ghetto and giving him the treatment he deserves. Croissant de Triomphe (video below) presents the mouse in a high-speed race across Paris, drawn in a classic, 1930s style and set against a backdrop of watercolor cars and buildings. The combination of old-school sensibilities and discreet computer animation reminds us a little of another Disney short, the Oscar-winning Paperman. Croissant is the first in a new series produced and directed by Paul Rudish of Dexter’s Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls fame and featuring a long list of Disney veterans, in which Mickey and the gang will show up everywhere from Santa Monica and New York, to Tokyo, Venice, and the Alps.
