The Original Mickey Mouse Club Show


Talent Roundup Day Winners

This list is by order of appearence within each season. Note that nearly all winners shared a Talent Roundup Day with another winner, though the segments were usually filmed at different times. A surprising number of winners were really professional entertainers, often fellow classmates of the Mouseketeers at Hollywood Professional School (HPS). Many others fell into that gray area between professional and part-time paid performer. Probably no more than half were true amateurs, doing their one and only televised engagement.

Where available, images have been provided from the winner's actual appearence on the show. Failing that, general publicity photos or images from other sources have been used. For some of these kids, however, there is simply no picture available. Only original broadcast appearences are listed. For a list of all winners in alphabetical order, click here. 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.
