Annette Funicello has stated in interviews that, upon being cast for the show, she told Walt Disney that she wanted to change her last name to one that sounded more "American". To his credit, Disney told her to keep her original last name because, "once someone remembers it, they will never be able to forget it". See more »

Good old Disney television!!!!! They don't make this like they used to...
Disney goes to people's living rooms throughout the world in 1955 through their television sets with "The Mickey Mouse Club," a show for kids that was not only just entertaining, but in fact, so great that two more versions have been spawned: one in the late 70s, and, of course, one in the early 90s for the then-good Disney Channel (they also showed the other two versions as well on "Vault Disney").
What I like about this show: I haven't seen the 1955 version, although the old Disney Channel used to show it, but it was too late at night. However, I've heard about how great this show is and I know the theme song to it:
Also, remember those Mickey Mouse ear hats that you now can buy at Disney World? Those were worn, too!
"The Mickey Mouse Club" - No longer on the tube, except for DVD!!!!!
10 stars! 10 stars! 10 stars!!!!!
