Power series expansions for the even and odd angular Mathieu functions $\operatorname{Se}_m(h,\operatorname{cos}\theta)$ and $\operatorname{So}_m(h,\operatorname{cos}\theta)$, with small argument $h$, are derived for general integer values of $m$. The expansion coefficients that we evaluate are also useful for the calculation of the corresponding radial functions of any kind.
