This weekend at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, Mickey Mouse took home a golden statue. The team behind the short film "O Sole Minnie" brought home the trophy for Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program, beating other nominees Adventure Time, Phineas and Ferb, Regular Show and Robot Chicken. This is the second Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program Emmy for the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse series, which also won an Emmy in 2013 for the episode "Croissant de Triomphe."
The retro-looking animated shorts began airing on the Disney Channel in 2013 with "No Service," in which Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck attempt to get served at a restaurant. They're unsuccessful because Mickey's not wearing a shirt and Donald, well, he's not wearing any pants. The lengths they go through to get some eats is laugh-out-loud funny.
The series has been renewed for a third season and we look forward to Mickey's further adventures ... and possible Emmy wins.
