The latest addition to Disney’s quite impressive new Shorts collection has arrived and it may just be my favorite one yet. Titled Ghoul Friend, this quick little tale stars Mickey and a terrifying, rotting rendition of Goofy. The pair cross paths causing Mickey to panic and flee, but there may be more to Zombie Goofy than his ghoulish appearance. The entire short is featured below for your viewing pleasure!
Disney is rolling out their new 2D Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts series on Disney Channel starting the weekend of June 28-30, 2013 (8:30 p.m. ET/PT). Disney gave us a sneak peek of the series last March with the short “Croissant de Triomphe”. Now available for viewing on Disney.com is a brand new short called “No Service”. New shorts will be premiering every Friday through July. The shorts will also be available to view on the WATCH Disney Channel mobile app, iTunes, and a new “Mickey Video Player” mobile app (which we haven’t been able to find yet, at least not on the Apple App Store) after their Disney Channel premieres.

Set in Paris, the short has Mickey saving the day by delivering croissants across town to a stressed out Minnie. Look out for cameos from other Disney characters and icons in the cartoon, too.
