January 26 – Sunday – The Mouseketeers – We’re the Mouseketeers

MouseketeersThis was particularly weird, made especially so by the fact that I liked it and had a pretty good workout, largely due to the seemingly never-ending rendition the “The Schnitzelbank Song” and the oh-so inspirational “Rolling Stone,” as I’ve been getting kind of mossy lately. This is not to be confused with the Brittney Spears era Mickey Mouse Club. That would make it even weirder. This is the original cast back in the late 1950s, and I only have vague memories of the show, but I do remember watching it.

The first side consisted of some bouncy little numbers like the ones mentioned. The second side was theme songs and singing cartoon characters like Donald Duck and a screeching chicken, but I made do. The record itself is by far in the worst condition in the collection, but it sounds better than it looks considering I had to wash it before putting it on the turntable. As it was, I needed to skip the last song on each side or would forever be trying to knock the needle into the next groove.

I think I may have been a Mouseketeer. I recall wearing the cap with the ears. But I was much more a Shari Lewis and Lambchop, Winchell Mahoney Time, and Kukla, Fran and Ollie kind of tot, which may explain the next album.
