After the animated Mickey Mouse Club theme song was performed, Donald Duck approached a large musical gong with a mallet to start the show. He never hit the gong without something going wrong. Among the problems were: the gong reverberated up the mallet and shook Donald uncontrollably. The gong was electrified and fried Donald. Nephews Huey, Louie and Dewey Duck squirted Donald with water pistols from behind the gong. The gong was paper and he went right through it. The gong disintegrated. But sometimes Donald got wise, dropped the mallet and took out a tiny percussion triangle, which he tinkled with a smile. See more »
As I said to Pinocchio, "Pinoc, there are two ways to do anything - the right way and the wrong way.

This was the high point of many of my days back in the mid-50's. I thought Jimmy Dodd was a little flakey, but the kids were who I wanted to see anyway so I put up with him and Roy the big mousketeer. Little did I dream that Paul Peterson, Bobby Burgess, and Johnny Crawford would go on to such superstardom. Not to mention Annette's brilliance in all those epic beach films. This was a nice program to come home to after school every day, especially friday because that was western day.
