Disney Releasing Stop-Motion Halloween Special Starring Mickey and Friends

Disney is releasing a new Halloween stop-motion special for the 2023 Halloween season titled “Mickey and Friends Trick or Treats.” The new special will premiere on Sunday, October 1, on Disney Junior, Disney Channel, and Disney XD at 7:00 p.m. EDT/PDT and be available for streaming on Disney+ on Monday, October 2.

In this new Disney Halloween special, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Daisy are trick-or-treating when Donald spies the spookiest mansion he’s ever seen and assumes it has the best treats. After he convinces his friends to risk a visit, the owner, Witch Hazel, casts a spell that turns them into their costumes. The special features new original music from Emmy Award-nominated songwriter Beau Black (“The Lion Guard”).

But the Halloween fun doesn’t stop with “Mickey and Friends Trick or Treats,” Disney has also unveiled a full lineup of special Halloween episodes of “Superkitties,” “Mickey Mouse Funhouse, and “Pupstruction,” which will premiere three nights in a row later this month.

A full-length Halloween episode of “Superkitties” will premiere on Monday, September 25, on Disney Junior at 7 p.m. In this special episode, “Halloween Cat,” the pets’ Howloween treats go missing all over Kittydale, so the SuperKitties must track down the thief.

The whimsical animated series “Mickey Mouse Funhouse” will premiere its Halloween-themed episode on Wednesday, September 26, on Disney Junior at 7:00 p.m. EDT/PDT.

A spooky Halloween episode of “Pupstruction” will premiere on Wednesday, September 27, on Disney Junior at 7:00 p.m. EDT/PDT. In the Halloween episode titled “Happy Howl-o-ween/The House of Howls,” Bobby Boots (voiced by Bobby Moynihan) thinks he wasn’t invited to Pupstruction’s Howl-O-Ween party, and Tank doesn’t think he’s brave enough to help build a haunted house.

“Mickey Mouse Funhouse” will also premiere a special Dia de los Muertos-themed episode on Friday, October 6, on Disney Channel at 10:00 a.m. EDT/PDT and Disney Junior at 12:05 p.m. EDT/PDT.
