During the second season the Mickey Mouse Club presented music from a number of different locales for Fun with Music Day. Switzerland, Ireland, Hawaii and Paris took their turn on Sound Stage 1 of the Disney Lot. For the show this clip comes from Trinidad was the country and calypso the musical style on display. (Calypso music enjoyed a brief but intense vogue in the states during 1956-57). Nearly all the second season mice take part in this one, with the musical arrangements and dancing eclipsing the ethnically challenged makeup, corny jokes, and peculiar accents. Watch for a shooting goof, as the tourists pouring out of the ship are visible staging behind the cutout prop.
