Mouseterpiece Theater was an American animation compilation series that was broadcast on The Disney Channel. Consisting of classic theatrical Disney short Cartoons, with a segment in-between shorts hosted by George Plimpton, usually giving commentary and background information before and after each cartoon. The cartoons featured are reportedly censored. [1]
