Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke guest stars as Goofy’s
pirate grandpappy, Captain Goof-Beard, in a special music-filled episode of
Disney Junior’s Emmy Award-nominated animated series Mickey Mouse
Clubhouse premiering Friday October 10th (9:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. The episode, titled "Mickey’s Pirate Adventure," features six new original songs
performed by Van Dyke’s character alongside Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald,
Daisy and Pluto.
About his role in the episode, Van Dyke said, "Anytime it’s
Disney, I always show up. This is the first time I’ve ever worked with Goofy,
and I’m playing his grandfather. I’m a pirate; nobody ever knew Goofy’s
grandfather was a pirate!"
In the special, Mickey and pals are enjoying a day at
the beach when Peg Leg Pete delivers a note from Goofy’s long-lost Grandpappy,
Captain Goof-Beard, asking for the gang’s help in ensuring that Harmony-Chord
Island, the musical isle where Goof-Beard lives, doesn’t go completely out of
tune and sink.
