Editorial Reviews

"M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E." Before the theme song's memorable spelling became an audio icon, before the series even aired, the Mickey Mouse Club was the most anticipated children's programming ever. This volume features the five episodes of week one of the black-and-white series that launched a television revolution. Also showcased in this volume is a wonderful tribute to the unforgettable Jimmie Dodd, the singer-actor who hosted the show. You'll also see recently discovered, never-before-seen color archival footage of the Mousketeers' very first appearance at the grand opening celebration of Disneyland. And you'll meet six original Mouseketeers in a reunion on the soundstage where they first got together in 1955. So, sit back and enjoy -- and you don't have to wait until 5:00.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please Uncle Walt, we need more of the same!!!!!!!!!!! October 17, 2004
Verified Purchase
I have given this a 5 star rating, based on others in the series. I am sure this will be of the same high quality. What many of us want, however are the serials from the MICKEY MOUSE CLUB, such as my all time favorite "Spin and Marty", (there were three seasons of them), The "Annette" serial, "Corky and White Shadow", and of course, the wonderful "Hardy Boys" serials. This is what the baby boomers who grew up wearing the ears want!!!!!! I have contacted the Disney Company with my requests and although they answered my emails and letters, as of late, there are no plans to release these. Also, darling Kevin Corcoran as "Moochie" was in "Moochie of the Little League" and "Moochie of Pop Warner Football", how about getting those on DVD?

4.0 out of 5 stars Why? Because We Like You October 14, 2005
When the Mickey Mouse Club aired in 1955, the New York Times predicted it would never last. But in 1955, an estimated 10 million kids tuned in, and at it's peak, Disney sold 26,000 pairs of mouse ears weekly. As reviewers have noted, this DVD is not the best of the MM Club. Instead of rating episodes, Disney went for historical value. Here's the first week of hour long shows. The talent line up went like this: Monday: Fun with Music Day; Tuesday: Guest Star Day; Wednesday: Anything Can Happen Day; Thursday: Circus Day; Friday: Talent Round-Up Day.

The best of the extras include Leonard Maltin's intros ( a staple on all Disney Treasures DVDs) and a reunion with the Mousketeers. As many people are beginning to realize, Disney's live action productions were second only to his animation. No, this isn't the best of the club run (Another video has been released with the "best" on it). But it is a trip back down memory lane to when TV was a new fantasyland, and a dreamer named Disney put kids on the stage and turned it upside down.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT FROM THE BEGINNING March 9, 2005
These two CDs demonstrate how great The Mickey Mouse Club was from the very first week. The hourlong shows are the only way to properly evaluate how far ahead of its time this program was, in respects beyond just the participation of the Mouseketeers. "What I Want to Be" may be criticized for some as hokey and sexist, but it was crisply written by none other than Stirling Silliphant, who rose quickly from being a mere publicist at Disney to writing this and other serial material for MMC. The great Alvy Moore is the correspondent who recruits little Pat Morrow and Duncan Richardson for job training at TWA in Kansas City. Pat Morrow was roughly 10 at the time of this production. She went on to become highly visible as a campaign groupie for John F. Kennedy in 1960, and later became a suffering slut on Peyton Place. But in this series, she looks as if she had been conceived from a Norman Rockwell painting, or from the mind of Disney animator Ward Kimball. She was an incredibly gifted little actress, and Richardson also looks as if he were straight out of a Rockwell cover.

Disney was obligated to produce 39 weeks of these one hour shows for two years, after ABC advanced $1 million to him to finish the construction of Disneyland. He was not stupid. He used MMC as a vehicle to sell the new amusement park, as evidencde in the very first newsreels. He also got a big assist from TWA in the making of the serial, "What I Want to Be." Out of such audacity, the art of cross promotion and product placement was truly born. Disney also furnished many if not most of the commercials aired within the original hour shows. The sped up voice of Jimmie Dodd, for example, was used as the voice of Bucky Beaver, the character selling Ipana toothpaste. The Mouseketeers were also seen in some commercials, i.e.
