Mickey Mouse whizzed around the English capital this week in time for the launch of the brand new animated series, 'Mickey and the Roadster Racers', on Disney Junior and DisneyLife
Mickey Mouse raced around London in his new Roadster Racer on Wednesday (26.04.17).
Commuters lining up at the taxi rank at Charing Cross station, at Southbank and in central, were in for a shock today when they saw the beloved cartoon character rock up in his fancy new motor, which took eight weeks to complete, just in time for the launch of the brand new animated series, 'Mickey and the Roadster Racers', on Disney Junior and DisneyLife.
The Roadster Racer, which was created by a specialist team of eight engineers and experts, measures 2.4 metres in length, and features a '28' on the side, which represents the year Mickey Mouse first appeared on screen in 'Steamboat Willie' in 1928, 90 years ago next year.
'Mickey and The Roadster Racers' sees Mickey and pals - Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto - racing across the globe on action-packed adventures, including a dash across London to stop a crown jewel thief.
In a special London themed 'Mickey and The Roadster Racers' episode due to air on Disney Junior and DisneyLife in May, the big-eared mouse and the gang attempt to track down a thief who has stolen the crown jewels, before returning them to the Queen.
'Mickey and the Roadster Racers' will air on Wednesdays at 5pm on Disney Junior and on DisneyLife.
