Dixon's first Hardy Boys mystery, The Tower Treasure. Tim Considine (The Adventures of Spin and Marty) and newcomer Tommy Kirk (who would go on to star in the Disney classics Old Yeller and The Shaggy Dog) star as Frank and Joe Hardy, who ...

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
From The Mickey Mouse Club, the show that made the after-school hours special for the first TV generation, comes "The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure," a serialized adaptation of Franklin W. Dixon's first Hardy Boys mystery, The Tower Treasure. Tim Considine (The Adventures of Spin and Marty) and newcomer Tommy Kirk (who would go on to star in the Disney classics Old Yeller and The Shaggy Dog) star as Frank and Joe Hardy, who are after their father, a private detective, to let them help him in his work. Dad says no, but when Joe's pesky gal-pal Iola has her purse stolen, the sleuthing siblings have a case of their own to solve. Their investigation leads them to new kid Perry Robinson, who gives them information about a secret pirate treasure hidden on the estate of local old coot Silas Applegate. Baby boomers are sure to recall the popular song lyrics "Gold doubloons and pieces of eight / Handed down to Applegate," as unforgettably sung in each episode by Thurl "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" Ravenscroft. To fully recapture what it was like to rush home from school in 1956 to catch the latest episode, this two-disc set obliges with the complete Mickey Mouse Club episode that introduced the serial. The Hardy Boys can be considered timeless entertainment that will appeal to any kid who wishes for mysteries to unravel, and we agree with Iola: "The Hardy Boys are the most wonderful detectives in the whole wide world." A viewer's advisory: Baby boomers who wish to preserve their treasured TV memories may not want to see how their childhood heroes have aged in a newly filmed interview with Considine and Kirk, conducted by Leonard Maltin.

    Cute But Classic

    Baby Boomers ran home in 1956 when the Mickey Mouse Club presented it first real mystery "cliffhanger" 11 minutes each for 19 episodes that became a hugh success. The serial has been excised and put on DVD under "Walt Disney Treastures", presenting each episode in its entirty. Some may find the opening a bit repititious. The opening sequences were culled from the 30's classic fick "Treasure Island". The two young stars, Tim Considine and Tommy Kirk were newcomers (Kirk who was discovered by Disney remained with the studio for a decade until he publically declared he was "gay" and was dropped--only to return several years later to make a sequel to his last hit movie with the company). "Treasures" is a limited edition housed in a metal box (beware it is flimsy and dents easily), with a COA, a color photo and many bonus features including the entire Mickey Mouse Club episode where the two stars introduce the series. Those who have not seen this serial, should watch the bonus materials last as it will give away some of the plot.) A classic never dates so avoid the 1977 hip pop culture retread. This one remains closer to the original books and truer to the characters. It's fun for adults (although not as suspensful) and the kids will love it. Disney has always had a keen marketing strategy for the profitable nostalgia market. They release a class film and then shelve it until a new generation comes along and I am sure they make a fortune. Get this while you can. The limited pressing is only 65,000 and won't last long. Fun for everyone
