Show Description

The Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club was the third version of the iconic Walt Disney children's variety program, with the original debuting in 1955 followed by a CBS version in 1977. The format remained essentially the same, presenting musical numbers, comedy skits, cartoon and serial shorts, and featured a cast of young performers, many of whom went on to stardom.

As in the original, an adult host presided over the program, and each episode presented a theme, ranging from Music Day, Party Day, Anything Can Happen Day, Guest Day and Hall of Fame Day. The Club's skits, which in earlier versions nearly always contained a "life lesson" aimed at viewers, took on more of an "SNL" approach, spoofing current movies and well-known television series. The Disney Channel version also devoted more time to musical entertainment, with cast members performing contemporary hit songs in the form of "mini-concerts," held either live in studio or taped from the Disney World Resort.

Some notable former Mouseketeers who utilized the series as a springboard to later success included Justin Timberlake, Keri Russell, Ryan Gosling, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears.
