The Original Mickey Mouse Club Show


The Mickey Mouse Club Show: Guest Stars

The tables below contain all known guest stars for the first two seasons of the original Mickey Mouse Club, by order of appearence. Some guests appeared more than once per season; others had a single appearence turned into two by the film editors. Disney paid a standard starting guest fee of $450, though at least one child guest star received $1,000 for his performance. Many guests didn't even get that; they were Disney contract players, voice-over artists, or employees, who appeared without additional compensation.

After the USA nearly swept the 1956 Olympic figure skating awards the show's producers booked five skating acts for guest star spots during the second season. The vast majority of guest stars, however, had tie-ins to other Disney projects. Third season guest stars appeared on either Mondays or Wednesdays, with Tuesdays usually given over to serials and cartoons. The only guest star to appear on a Tuesday during that season is listed at the bottom of the page.

Where available, images have been provided from the guest's actual appearence on the show. Failing that, general publicity photos or images from other film or television appearences have been used. For some of these folks, however, there is simply no picture available. Only original appearences are listed; reruns are excluded.

Most of the information below was extracted from original research done by Bill Cotter, however, any errors of fact or mistakes in interpretation are my own.
