  1. Hi Mousechat team! Great episodes this week as always! I wanted to chime in to Steve about the “clock short” that he was talking about. It is actually on the Walt Disney Short Films Collection that came out in 2015 (the one that has the “Frozen Fever” short in it). It is currently on Netflix as well. I wish the whole team all the best in 2016; keep putting out these great episodes! I look forward to them every week.

    • Hey Brandi,
      Happy New Year. That’s for the information on that Clock short. I have been looking for that on and off for about 4 years. I have not seen the Frozen one either so I have something else to look forward too also. Thanks, Steve
