Trivia

The American Dairy Association shared production costs for the film with Walt Disney Productions. Disney stopped showing it on The Mickey Mouse Club after the 1958-1959 season of the original MMC. (The last season was all reruns.) The film rights then transferred to the American Dairy Association, who made it available to schools and interested groups through the Education Film Library Association (EFLA) catalog for a few years ca. 1960-1965. ADA also published a 16-page, color, storyboard pamphlet of the film ostensibly penned by Annette, which was distributed in dairy farming communities. See more »

This was not an episode of the Mickey Mouse club but an 8 segment serial which played on the "Mickey Mouse Club" (like "Spin and Marty") during the 1956-57 season. It was produced with the cooperation of the American Dairy Association. http://www.annettefunicello.net/dairy.htm

Annette and Sammy spent two weeks on a large dairy farm in Wisconsin where they were shown the operation of the farm by actors playing the McCandless family.

The Sisk family, who actually owned the farm, continued living in the farmhouse, during filming; maybe this was the first Reality TV show. A "Spin and Marty" tie-in occurred after Sammy accidentally put the tractor in gear (while the engine was running) and it lurched forward and crashed into the barn doors. Disney then had his "Spin and Marty" character Joe do the same thing with the hot rod Spin and Marty had brought to the Triple R.

Toward the end the family leaves and Annette and Sammy are left to operate the farm. A lightning surge messes up the milking equipment and the family must return and save the day.
