Pyongyang: Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh have taken the stage in North Korea during a concert for leader Kim Jong Un in an unusual performance featuring a cast of Disney characters.

Still photos aired on state TV yesterday show performers dressed as some of America`s most memorable cartoon characters dancing and prancing as video of "Snow White" and "Beauty and the Beast" played on a massive screen behind the stage.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency says Kim and other top officials saw the performance by the new Moranbong band Friday.

KCNA says Kim assembled the band a few months ago as part of a plan to "bring about a dramatic turn" in the arts under his new leadership.
Kim took power after father Kim Jong Il died in December.
