Synopsis

Walt Disney started the first Mickey Mouse Club in the early 1930's, as the Great Depression started to take hold, crippling the American economy. Parents faced the very real prospect of unemployment and dramatic wage cuts with little or no time for their children as they tried to supplement their income. Walt Disney believed his Mickey Mouse Clubs now had a deep responsibility to teach these young children life lessons: moral values, honesty, intergrity, compassion and patriotism. Working with local schools and Parent-Teacher Associations, these clubs became a proud mainstay in their communities. At the height of their popularity, Mickey Mouse Clubs had millions of American children enrolled. Read about this fascinating piece of lost American history with numerous rare photographs
