The Original Mouseketeers

Do you remember the classic TV show, “Mickey Mouse Club?” Those child stars were known as Mouseketeers and we’ve featured the original group on the Disney Parks Blog a number of times as they helped establish Disneyland Resort as the “Happiest Place on Earth” since its inception in the 1950s. Did you watch this show as child?

  • I was just looking into You Tube and found 2 songs from Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty done by Mouseketeer Darlene Gillespi. She really did have a great voice. I wish her well.

  • I remember when it came on as a rerun show in the 70’s, before the next set of Mousketeers came out. I can remember my dad saying “Is that our Annette?” and I thought he was talking about our next door neighbor… He was excited to see the show again and was happy to see that I liked it as well.

  • I grew up watching the Mickey Mouse Club, and never missed a show. I recognize and remember most of the Mouseketeers, but where is Roy Williams?

  • Growing up during the 50s I remember The Mickey Mouse Club television show very well.

  • Wonderful post!! My Father grew up watching the Mousketeers, he had a secret crush on Annette. 🙂 I am thankful that he shared his love of the Mousketeer Club with me and together we watched this beloved show often. Fun links!

  • What a way to celebrate! The foundation that built part of the TV empire and brought Disney into people’s living rooms. Glad to see them celebrate and honor the original cast.

  • I was just wondering if Roberta Shore, who starred in Disney’s Shaggy Dog, was ever asked to be a Mouseketeer? I know she was on the show and also sang. She was great in the TV Western the Virginian.
