I don’t blame you if you never read anything else by me ever again after that headline, but I had to do it. I just had to.

Anyway, today I’m going to talk about Disney’s on-again, off-again exercise series: Mousercise. That’s right. Kids could work out with their favorite Disney characters, including Mickey and the crew. Originally a record released by Disney in 1982, it featured music that kids could dance to, with a Disney twist. Most kids I know already dance around to Disney music regardless; but hey, gotta get that money somehow.

Of course, in 1983, there was a television show that followed on the new Disney Channel. Hosted by Kellyn Plasschaert, she took kids through a (roughly) 30-minute aerobic workout. I watched a few on YouTube, and I’ll admit, I tried them myself. To be fair, I do work in a gym, so it sort of goes along with my life. The routines were simple, but you’re not given any instruction on how to do them. Kelly starts dancing and moving, and about 80% of the kids (and you) have no idea what’s going on, but damn if you aren’t giving it your all.

The best thing about this series, is watching the actors in the Disney mascot costumes. The costumes themselves are heavy and hot enough as it is, but add in “working out” and you have a recipe for actual disaster. Plus, these are the clunky, 1983 Disney mascot costumes. I’m not saying they’re any better now, but it is pure comedy gold watching them attempt to move around on this series. I sincerely hope the actors were paid well for that special kind of torture.

Mousercise was actually popular, though. Kids and adults alike got into it (it isn’t hard to see why, at the end of it, it is a good aerobic workout). There was even a certificate people could get to show they were a part of the program. There was clothing (for adults and kids!), coloring books, a video in 1985, and Disneyland even had live events with Kelly, who was a hit with fans.

When the aerobics trend faded in the late ’80s, Disney let this show go as well. It’s a real shame, since there was more they could have done. Getting kids (and adults) moving and working out isn’t really a trend — there are exercise fads (literally everything Beach Body, Zumba, etc.), the overall goal of being healthy isn’t a fad. It’s a shame Disney let this one go.

In 2005 a new album was released, and in 2016 it was gaining momentum in Japan (with the song Let It Go). Aside from that, there’s not much else out there. Disney could easily bring this back from the dead, so here’s hoping they do.

Terez’s New Mickey Mouse Activewear Is Every Disney Fan’s Dream

Photo: Terez

Mickey Mouse is having a ~fashion~moment. For the 90th anniversary of the cartoon mouse, Disney launched a “Mickey the True Original” campaign, and Vans, Kohl’s, Primark, and Uniqlo have all launched Disney-inspired collections for the occasion. L.A.-based artist Amanda Ross-Ho created a Mickey t-shirt installation, and Opening Ceremony’s Spring 2018 show included fuzzy skirts and floor-length dresses featuring retro Mickey cartoons. Now, activewear brand Terez is getting in on the action with their new Disney x Terez collection that dropped yesterday.

The 14-piece collection has all of Terez’s signatures: shiny patterned leggings and muscle-flattering fits. But this is Terez’s first lifestyle-leaning line, meaning it’s designed to pair well with jackets and boots on top of standing up to sweat sessions. Rest assured, everything’s just as workout-friendly as Terez’s usuals. The leggings are made with a breathable, sweat-wicking fabric and the tops are flowy. The standouts: red leather-illusion leggings printed with tiny Mickeys and a cropped black crewneck with a black foil Mickey silhouette. (Don’t miss these fall workout clothes that’ll take you into the new season.)

This is Terez’s first Disney collab aside from two previous Star Wars lines, and it’s filled a mouse-shaped hole in our hearts. Everything would look on-point at a Disney race or Disney-theme SoulCycle class. And they have equal potential for peacocking around Disney World-a lot of the clothes come in girls’ sizes so you can get all matchy-matchy on your family vacation.

Disney x Terez is available now on Terez.com and will also be sold on ShopDisney.com in the future. HBD, Mickey.

Terez’s Disney Workout Clothes Will Make You Want To Power Walk Around The Magic Kingdom

I love a day at Disneyland, mostly because it’s the only time I can wear head-to-toe Disney merch without looking like a five-year-old (not that doing so anyway is a bad thing in the slightest). But this brand new collaboration is about to make rocking Mickey gear cool for the gym and beyond, even for my almost-30 self. The activewear brand Terez teamed up with Minnie Mouse in celebration of National Polka Dot Day to design a line of Disney workout clothes that are actually so, so chic. As expected, the collection is packed with polka dots, mouse motifs, and Minnie portraits, but trust me, this is not your little sister’s PE uniform.

In case you’re not familiar with Terez, it’s a female-founded brand on a mission to bring variety to your altheisure collection. The days of only wearing plain leggings to the gym are behind us, and thanks to Terez’s endless range of prints, you never have to solely rely on your black pair again. There’s literally not a single print they don’t have on their site. Stars? Duh! Cheetah? Obvi! A cassette tape pattern? Got it. You name it, you can buy it from Terez. And now, they’re adding the beloved Disney themes to their collaboration list.

And here’s where things get even more magical: The entire collection is under $100. Scroll down for a closer look at all the big-girl Disney pieces you’ll want to slip into STAT.

If Minnie Mouse is your homegirl, your ride or die, or your fashion icon, this is just the tee to show her the recognition she deserves. The fabric is light and airy, and the cropped cut gives you that cool, slouchy look that looks cute at the gym, while running errands, or chillin’ on the couch watching cartoons.

I’m obsessed with these Minnie-printed leggings because the pattern isn’t too over-the-top. The black-and-white color palette makes it feel modern and chic, but a closer look shows just how whimsical and fun they are.

If you love the black-and-white Minnie Mouse print as much as I do, there’s also this cute tank!

If you’re looking for a pair of leggings that will really make you fall in love, this pair makes Mickey and Minnie kiss when you put your knees together. Swoon!

If you just can’t get enough of Mickey and Minnie PDA, there’s also this adorable tee!

One of my favorite prints is this metallic pink-on-black polka dotted design because it’s totally understated. You can’t see it now, but the occasional dot is actually a Minnie Mouse silhouette. And the best part is, you can shop the print in leggings and a crewneck sweater.

The Terez x Disney featuring Minnie Mouse collection is already available for purchase on Terez’s website.

We’re going back to the 80s and 90s with these two new clothing lines that have officially hit the Disney Parks! You can now find the Mousercise and Mickey Mouse Club clothing lines in stores and online. Take a look at how adorable these collections are!

We absolutely love the new Mousercise clothing line inspired by Minnie Mouse of the 80s. The bright colors and classic Minnie look absolutely adorable. We could totally see these pieces used in an 80s workout Halloween costume for Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure or at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.

Of course, this collection is so casual and cool that you can incorporate the 80s-inspired pieces into your everyday style both in and out of the Disney Parks.

The new 90s-inspired Mickey Mouse Club collection is equally adorable and includes even more pieces we love! This collection totally reminds us of Saved By The Bell and Full House, and we can’t get enough. The fun mixed patterns, bright colors, and classic Mickey Mouse Club icon make these pieces ones that we can’t wait to style.

You can find the Mousercise and Mickey Mouse Club collections in both World of Disney stores at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort. Remember that these two new clothing and accessories lines include several pieces so you can splurge on all of them or save and only pick one or two and still find something that fits within your personal budget.

You can also find some of these items online on shopDisney. We found the jacket, shorts, and sweatshirt online, but we’re sure that more of the items in the Mousercise and Mickey Mouse Club lines will begin showing up on shopDisney soon.
