Moline High School Class Of 1961

Nostalgia, Part 5



The Moline High School Class Of 1961 proudly presents its homepage on an era never to be forgotten: the 50's and 60's.


 The Mouseketeers made their first television appearance on July 17, 1955 - on the ABC broadcast special celebrating the opening of Disneyland. A few months later, the Mickey Mouse Club TV program appeared on October 3, 1955. Walt Disney was adamant that the Mouseketeers be regular kids, not actors. Producers searched schools looking for kids with that special spark.The Mousketeers went to school 5 days a week on the Disney lot. Not only did they work 6 days but Sundays were often spent performing for the public. Being a Mousketeer wasn't easy.

Hey, there! Hi, there! Ho, there!

Mickey Mouse! Donald Duck!
Forever let us hold our banners high!
High! High! High!

Come along and sing a song
And join the jamboree

And, the ending...

Now's the time to say goodbye
To all our company
Through the years we'll all be friends
Wherever we may be
Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse
Forever let us hold our banner high
M-I-C - See ya real soon!
K-E-Y - Why? Because we like you!
