Could Mickey Mouse Comics Be Adapted Into Animation To Help The Character Out?

The Disney Comics, most notably those from Carl Barks and Don Rosa, are widely praised for greatly expanding on the personalities of classic Disney characters, particularly those like Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, and so forth, showing that they're more than just mascots . This also includes Mickey Mouse.

Since the late 1930s, Mickey was greatly changed from a mischievous, scrappy character into a more idealistic, nice guy, with some people thinking he's too boring. The comics have given more of a defined personality, and Mickey Mouse 2013 is generally agreed to be a step in the right direction.

The question I have is this:

Could the Mickey Mouse comics be adapted into animation in order to show more depth to him, and get across this image to the general public? Both of the Ducktales cartoons are praised for showing more depth to the characters, with those images being ingrained into the public. Can this also apply to Mickey Mouse should his comics be adapted into a full fledged series?

I had been clamoring for a Mouseton DuckTales spin-off. Since my feelings on the DuckTales reboot have considerably cooled after last season finale's, it's less essential to my Disney Comics wants than it used to be, but it would still be interesting.

Mao Mao has been on hiatus since October. There will be no new episodes airing in June in the U.S., despite those last 9 episodes of Season 1 (31-40) allegedly leaked by Aussie streaming service Stan back in April, and we've been telling ourselves NOT to spoil any of these episodes on social media until they are officially released.

Man, it's really hard to like your favorite show when it's stuck in a long hiatus...
Take this with a very huge grain of salt. While I was on Tomb Cartoon Monkey Skeleton, I found a comment which was saying which new CN originals will premiere this and next year.

Lisa Ortiz's mother passed away.

I found this interview that Pam Arciero (Grundgetta from Sesame Street) took part in. I mainly skipped to 1:35, where she mentioned how production on the show ground to a halt because of the pandemic. There was about 1 more week of material to tape. She says they could start again in October, but that could change.
