Hey, Disney! This release is great, but how about some episodes or highlights of the terrific batch of Mouseketeers from the late 70’s on DVD? That incredibly colorful, well-produced, dazzlingly choreographed and magnificently scored version of the NMMC has been hiding in the vaults for way too long. The energetic, super-talented kids (all 12 of them!) rival ANY of their 50’s counterparts for talent and personality. Also, that was the first Mickey Mouse Club to feature Mouseketeers of color, and their cast album was the highest selling children’s album of 1977. Sure a few episodes were shown on Vault Disney in the wee hours of the morning several years ago, but there are many of us who’d love to share that great show with the children in our lives. I certainly think they’d relate to it a lot more than this 50’s one. People in their late 30’s and early 40’s have disposable income too! Bring back the Disco Mice!

Come along and sing a song and join the jamboree!

Now you can relive the magic of one of the most popular children’s shows in history with a new collection of episodes from the original MICKEY MOUSE CLUB.

Featuring vintage musical performances, cartoons, and even an introduction to THE HARDY BOYS episodes by Annette Funicello!

These nostalgia-soaked classics are everything you remember . . . and so much more. Hey, There! Hi, There! Ho, There! You’re as welcome as can be.

This sounds like it will be a DVD collection of the former 10 tape VHS Mickey Mouse Club release.

I have “The Walt Disney Treasures The Mickey mouse Club” and that set gets me thirst y for more. I am greatly anticipating this DVD. Hey Disney, obiously “The Walt Disney Treasures The Best of the Mickey Mouse Club” must have sold well otherwise this DVD would not be coming very soon. By the way,Jondog, I totally agree with your statement that Disney Needs to releast at least a few episodes of the ’70’s show. It’s not really fair to the fans of that show to be releasing a lot of material from the ’50’s show, some from the ’80’s and ’90’s show, and leave you folks out. Disney, are you listening? This group of people has disposable income. Jondog, if you’re reading this, I remember how frustrating it was when some of I wanted the ’50’s show to come out on DVD. I was overjoyed when it did. You folks shouldn’t be left out in the cold. Please Disney, release some of the shows from the ’70’s. Now, pertaining to “The Best of The Mickey Mouse Club”, this was the show that eventualy knocked “Howdy Doody” off of daily television and then it was finally put on put back on the air in 1960. Kids knew quality entertainment and the parents and teachers really liked the fact that it also educated children. Lest we forget, the wonderful and gracious Jimmie Dodd. What a wonderful and kind man that he was. He was a genuinely wonderful role model. I’d really like to see Disney release a dvd or a book with nothing but his “Words to Grow By” or “Doddisms” that he gave the audience at the close of most shows. Hooray for Disney for what they’re doing! Now, Disney, please do the very same thing for those who love the ’70’s show. I was too old for the ’70’s show when it was originally on, but, I believe that it would only be fair if Disney would put some of those shows on DVD becaue, from what I’ve seen, those shows had a lot of talented kids and it was good clean entertainment. I’ve seen a few of them and they really were good. Jondog, I’m with you!

Some children’s shows age well and retain their charm (“Stingray” and “Thunderbirds” with their careful attention to detail, “Gumby” with its surrealism, “Davey and Goliath” with its classic moral lessons). I was looking forward to the Mickey Mouse Club on DVD as I had fond memories of watching it every afternoon after school. This has not aged well. “Spin and Marty” and “The Hardy Boys” serials are still enjoyable (they were both serialized on this program). The rest of this resembles an endless talent show put on at your local public school by some local kids. It isn’t very entertaining. It gets tedious quickly. It moves very slowly. The production numbers were expensive by children’s show standards in the fifties but they look cheap and tacky by today’s standards. Dull. I used my fast forward button a great deal on this one.
