Mickey Mouse is returning to where it all began. The Disney icon and his pals will star in a new series of 19 animated shorts, which will premiere on Disney Channel starting Friday, June 28.
Disney says the new Mickey Mouse shorts will contain contemporary themes, but also pay homage to the art direction and style of the original 1920s and 1930s cartoons.
Cartoon Network anniversary
Cartoon Network celebrated is 20th birthday on Monday and has big plans to keep the party going this month. For the next four weekends, the network will have special birthday-themed programming, along with fan voting at cartoonnetwork.com for favorite shows and characters. Winners will be revealed on air the weekend of Nov. 3-4.
The folks at Mad are having way too much fun. Monday's episode of the Cartoon Network series (based on the iconic humor magazine) features "2 Broke Powerpuff Girls," a clever mash-up of the late, great, adorable cartoon The Powerpuff Girls and CBS's bawdy new sitcom 2 Broke Girls.

Sony will release the first season of Silver Spoons, though that's not really "classic" television (are the '80s considered "classic" now? Maybe "semi-classic"?).My "Pick of the Week" goes to Picket Fences, the 1992 series from David E. Kelley.
