"Mickey's 50" was a wonderful birthday tribute to Mickey Mouse on "The Wonderful World of Disney"
10 December 2018 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Since this year marked Mickey Mouse's 90th birthday, I originally looked on YouTube hoping to find this particular ep of "The Wonderful World of Disney" celebrating Mickey's 50th that I first watched at age 10. All I found on YT were three segments of stop-motion animation of MM collectibles in live action that was directed by and starred one Mike Jittlov. The segments were titled "The Collector", "The Rat Race", and "Mouse Mania". All three were pretty entertaining. I finally managed to once again see the whole thing on the DailyMotion site. We're treated to various clips of MM's cartoons and stories of Walt Disney's career that resulted from the success of them. Plenty of celebrities of the time, some of whom are still around and active today, offered their congrats to Mickey. Of particular notice was that Elton John didn't wear his trademark glasses when appearing, Bruce Jenner hadn't turned into Caitlin yet, and O.J. Simpson was just a former football player and wasn't accused of a brutal crime at the time! This may have been the first time that I realized that the Annette Funicello that appeared in Skippy commercials at the time was the same one who was in the "Mickey Mouse Club" as a teen (earlier that morning, I also discovered that she once dated teen singer Paul Anka who was made to break up with her by Uncle Walt himself, which then inspired Paul's song "Puppy Love, when Casey Kasem-on his "American Top 40" program-told that story before Anka's song "This is Love" debuted that day on his radio show). Mickey's 50 was entertaining to watch then, and it still is now, 40 years later! Happy 90th birthday, Mickey!
