The title of this Mickey Mouse Club oral history tips its rodent ears to the emphatic exclamation that oversized Mouseketeer Bobby made at the end of each show. Long before the rule of Twitter, FaceBook, Formspring, and text-messaging, the short-lived (1955-1959) Disney Mickey Mouse Club TV show provided social glue that connected millions of young boys and girls. Cancelled because of a contract dispute at the top of its popularity, the show rapidly gained a mythic aura among Baby Boomers. This behind-the-scenes history of the variety show cult hit taps into that nostalgia with pictures, interviews, and recollections. Wholesome, perky, and super cute.
