The Original Mickey Mouse Club Show

Internet Media

Feature Video

The amazingly limber Nancy Carol Druckenbrod from Silver Springs, Maryland does a jazz dance for the Red Team Mouseketeers then follows it with an equally acrobatic tap number. Next tenor Benn Zeppa comes on singing a medly that includes Carolina in the Morning (Kahn/Donaldson), April Showers (DeSylva/Silvers), and California Here I Come (DeSylva/Meyer). All three date from the early 1920's; talent winners were encouraged to use either Disney music or selections in the public domain, the producers being anxious to hold down expenses for a show that constantly exceeded its budget. Benn finishes with Disney song The Lazy Countryside (Bobby Worth) from its 1947 feature film Fun And Fancy Free.
