Yes, Craig, we remember it. Here it is over 25 years later and there are people who still remember. It turns out that most people that I've come across were closet fans of the show. They were devoted to the show and were surprised (and thrilled) whenever it leaked out that a friend down the street was as obsessed about the show as they were.
I've always felt one of the problems the show had though was they were on the one hand trying to appeal to a certain age group (age 8-15 or so) but then on the other hand they stuck those cartoons into the show (for little kids). We wanted to see more of the Mice! Plus Disney didn't give the Mice their fan mail until after the show was off the air, so the kids didn't even know the extent of their popularity until it was too late.
The 70's NMMC may have been referred to at the Forgotten Club (Lisa Whelchel has said that the New Mouseketeers sometimes refers to themselves as the "Forgotten Mice") but there are over 200 of us who haven't forgotten this special, little colorful show. We talk about the show and what the "Mice" are up to these days on a discussion group.
