Record Comments:  This record includes two Mouseketunes from "The Mickey Mouse Club" television show.  The record was released in both 6" 78 RPM and 7" 45 RPM formats with the same catalog number.  Each issue has two different covers.  One features the cast waving and looking up with a yellow background and the other shows The Mouseketeers on stage with a red background.  The one with the yellow background shows Dennis with only four fingers.  The artwork pictured on this site has been corrected.

   

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 show found new life in syndication in 1975, that spawned "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 that lead to another new cast and episodes starting in 1989 under the title of "MMC."
