Record Comments:  This 6 x 6 inch, thick cardboard greeting card includes a birthday message that can be read and listened to.  In order to play the flexi-disc record that is attached to the inside of the card, it requires that the center hole be punched out and for the card to be separated on the perforated, folding edge.

The card was produced by American Telecard, Inc. for Buzza Cardozo of Anaheim, California.  The record was made by Columbia Record Productions and includes a short message with music and dialog from Disney characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto and the Mouseketeers.

Mickey Mouse kicks off the story with a greeting to the little friend that gets the card and welcomes the visitor inside the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  Once inside, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto give their surprise greetings and welcome.  Mickey shares the next surprise to their friend that the Mickey Mouse Club will be joining them.  Donald insists that it's the Donald Duck Club and they engage in a round of word wars.  The official Mickey Mouse Club chorus sing their clubhouse theme.  Goofy and Donald comment on how much fun this is.  Minnie Mouse announces the arrival of the cake and the gang close the message by singing "Happy Birthday."

Subject Notes:  The Mickey Mouse Club is a children's television variety show that includes live-action performances, exclusive serials and animated segments that were promoted as Mousekatoon Time.  The show was part of a deal with ABC that help fund the building of the Disneyland Theme Park, in Anaheim California.

The show premiered in October of 1955 and ran for three seasons, starting out in an hour-long format and later shortened to 30 minutes.  The programs include a cast of children, known as The Mouseketeers, led by adults Jimmie Dodd and Roy Williams.  In all, 260 one-hour episodes and 130 half-hour episodes were produced.

The original show found new life in syndication in 1975.  The success of the reruns led to the creation of  The New Mickey Mouse Club in 1977 with new episodes and a new cast.  The original series was also revived in 1983, finding a new home on the Disney Channel.  Those airings paved way for another new cast and episodes starting in 1989 under the title of MMC.
