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.
