Minnie’s Bow-Toons coming soon to Disney Junior in the UK

Global icon Minnie Mouse ventures alone for the first time ever to launch her very own TV show, Minnie’s Bow-Toons, on 18th November at 10.50am on Disney Junior.

Known for her signature polka dot dresses and over-sized hair bows, Minnie Mouse made her first appearance alongside her leading man, Mickey Mouse, in the classic animated short Steamboat Willie, where she played a damsel in distress.  Whilst Minnie and Mickey Mouse are forever inseparable, Minnie’s Bow-Toons gives Minnie the chance to embark on her greatest solo adventure yet.

In the stylish new series of shorts, Minnie demonstrates the fashion flair that has inspired countless imitations, style icons and celebrities. Together with good friend Daisy Duck, Minnie runs Bow-Tique, a specialty shop, which stocks only bows and bow-ties. No matter what the occasion, Minnie has a bow (or bow-tie) for every possible situation. From using a rubber bow to fix some leaky pipes or shredded bows to make pom poms for a cheerleader – she has the answer!

Boel Ferguson, Vice President and General Manager, Disney Channels UK and Ireland, said: “As charming as she is timeless, Minnie Mouse has entertained generations of parents, particularly mothers, around the world. We look forward to building upon Minnie’s legacy of entertainment, laughter and elegance and introduce her to a whole new audience on Disney Junior.”

Minne’s Bow-Toons launches on Friday 18th November on Disney Junior, as part of a month-long celebration of programming dedicated to Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Throughout November devotees will be able to see a special featuring Mickey, Minnie and their pals week days at midday. These include Mickey’s Campervan Adventure (Wednesday 9th November) and Minnie’s Bow-tique Special (Wednesday 2nd November).
