The Original Mickey Mouse Club Show

Internet Media

Feature Video

Songwriters Gil George and Paul Smith provided the words and tune for Painting Aunt Polly's Fence. Like all first season numbers the storyline was by producer Bill Walsh and Hal Adelquist. Jimmie Dodd is the lead in the all-male cast that includes (in order of appearence) Cubby O'Brien, Mike Smith, Mark Sutherland, Don Underhill, and Lonnie Burr. All guy casts were really rare for MMC numbers, which typically had several of the girls dressed as boys if only male characters were used. The only other skit to feature just boys to my recollection was the third season "Barbershop Quartet" show, which incidentally had a song called It's the Barber's Life For We. Hmmm, sound familiar?

If you've come to this page expecting to see some other video, my apologies. Clips change twice a month, usually on the 1st and 15th, but the links on the home page hang around much longer. If there's something in particular you'd like to see, drop me a line and if its available I'll work it into the rotation. Having trouble viewing the video?
