If possible, could Season 2000 be unlocked and I'll add them all in? Then the work for mods is minimal.

There are actually even more that are missing from this era, when you also go through House of Mouse. House of Mouse generally re-aired all of the shorts that were aired in Mouseworks, but also had some of its own new shorts. Only some of these are in the database.

In addition to the 29 missing shorts detailed above, the following 11 are missing:

1999-05-08 Goofy's Extreme Sports: Skating the Half Pipe

2002-01-26 Mickey and the Color Caper
https://disney.fandom.com/wiki/Mickey_a ... olor_Caper

2002-05-18 Mickey and the Goat Man

2002-09-02 Pinball Mickey

Airdates on wikipedia were sourced from here:
https://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/Walt_Disn ... _of_Mouse/

There's an incomplete list of episodes here on IMDB with weird season demarcations, but all the airdates add up for those episodes that appear in both sources:

Thanks you,

House of Mouse (and Mouseworks) are shows that packaged Disney Animated Shorts with host segments. In both cases almost all the shorts are already added to the DAS series. So if you're saying the shorts shouldn't be listed, there are a lot that need to be removed...

House of Mouse also ran shorts that are older (like stuff from the 50's).

I don't know if any episodes of HoM/Mouseworks are missing here but it certainly seems the "Disney Animated Shorts" series is special and has become a centralized place for Disney Animated Shorts to be listed, including those that have been premiered within the context of a TV series.

Wait, why is this a denied request? I don't think you understood my posts?

The "Disney Animated Shorts" series contains all the animated shorts Disney has produced as far as I can tell.

You said the same thing to this guy here although most of the shorts were eventually added:
viewtopic.php?f=25&t=36376&p=112485&hil ... 27#p112485

Like all the other shorts these are not restricted solely to House of Mouse -- many of them aired both on House of Mouse and on Mouseworks and have been played on TV standalone as well. They're really no different than any of the other Disney shorts in this regard.

If Mouseworks and House of Mouse shorts should not be listed under "Disney Animated Shorts" for some reason, then quite a few entries need to be deleted. And either way it'd be nice to have an explainer on which Disney animated shorts are and are not allowed in the "Disney Animated Shorts" series.

Suppose you point out which shorts that originated in House of Mouse and/or Mouseworks are now in the Disney Animated Shorts listing? Because they should not be there.

As of right now, the shorts that were developed specifically for House of Mouse will not be added to the DAS listing. If however, you feel the shorts need to be broken out of the episodes and listed individually, that may be something that we could discuss as that is the usual policy here regarding episodes that contain multiple cartoons. Adding them to the DAS listing won't happen.

I had a look at some of the links you listed. All said that the shorts originated as part of a House of Mouse episode.

"Adding them to the DAS listing won't happen."

It would be much more helpful if you would clarify the rules around the DAS series.
