Trivia

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 »

The best kids' show of all for us baby-boomers!
9 April 2003 | by opsbooksSee all my reviews

When our first TV arrived in March, 1959, this was the show which materialised out of the ether. 6.05 PM on a Tuesday night, if my memory serves me correctly. And thus began a decade-long love affair with the lovely Annette Funicello - only she didn't know it! A wonderful team of young performers who could do just about anything, a cartoon or two, a guest star and the serial which probably starred Tim Considine. Was it 'The Hardy Boys'? I watched every episode and it was a sad day when due to changing times, the MMC left our screens.

When several members toured Australia (Jimmy, Darlene and possibly Karen or Annette) they were mobbed by thousands. I wasn't one of them as we didn't have a car and I had no easy way of reaching Mascot Airport. It would be years before I came across the souvenir brochure, my one small memento of those great times ...
