  • Happy 51st Birthday to The Mickey Mouse Club!

    One year ago today, Disneyland held a special event in
    honor of the 50th Anniversary of The Mickey Mouse Club.
    Disneyland welcomed back 10 of the Mouseketeers from the
    original run. In addition, nearly 1,000 additional Mickey fans
    were invited to join in the celebration and become honorary
    Mickey Mouse Club Members!!

    We were asked to check in at the front gate of Disneyland
    early that morning, wearing black pants and shoes. After
    checking in, we were given a black long sleeve shirt, a
    Mickey Mouse Club sticker to place on the shirt, a pair
    of Black Mickey Mouse ears, and a black plastic pouch,
    whick contained a pair of gold pom poms!

    The front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle had been preparred
    as a stage for us to perform along with 10 of the original
    Mickey Mouse Club members!

    We were assigned an area to stand, which formed the shape
    of the world's largest pair of Mickey Mouse ears ~ with nearly
    1,000 people! Then it was time for us to learn our part ~
    complete with singing and dancing (well sort of ) As
    soon as we knew our part, out came the Original Mouseketeers!
    And it was time for us to practice the "show" with the ones
    choosen by Walt! (tee hee hee)

    Then it was time for the real thing, and for the Orignal Mouseketeers
    (and us) to perform the show in front of the Castle. Immediately
    afterwards a few photo opps were taken. with the Mouseketeers
    in their white shirts down in front.

    After the show, the group of nearly 1,000 volunteers herded their
    tails and ears through the castle, back to Big Thunder Ranch, where
    a breakfast had been preparred for us.

    In addition, we were each
    presented with an official Mouseketeer Certificate. Later that day,
    I made a point of meeting the Mouse, so he could sign the Certificate
    in person.

    And yes, for all you MMC fans, the Mouseketeers did indeed make their
    1st appearance on the Disneyland tv show on July 17th, 1955, but
    The Mickey Mouse Club tv show premiered on October 3rd, 1955.
    So, Happy 1st Anniversary of your 50th Birthday to the Mickey Mouse

    And of all the special memories over the past year, October 3rd
    2005, was certainly one of the most special. And yes, on that
    date, my Disney Dweebdom was raised to a level that I could have
    never imagined!

            The little green envy monster is rearing it's ugly head right now! I am a child of the 70's version, but was raised on re-runs of the original. I absolutely love Bobby and Sharon and I can't wait to see a picture of all of you lucky ducks with them. :gladsad:

              That day was SO much fun! That was the first time that I had ever met any MiceChatters, and I met a pretty good group! If you don't mind...I'm gonna post some pics that I have of the day.

              Good times, good times.

                How fun - I still wish I could have been there!

                Remember those dorky 70's MMC costumes? Burnt orange? Yuck! Us children of the 70's got robbed in the fashion department I tell ya. I was so psyched when the original MMC came out in DVD, jsut with all the episodes were available. At least there's a Spin and Marty episode! (but no Corky and White Shadow!)
                Counting the minutes to our next trip!
