What the Mickey Mouse Club Is And What It Means To Do For the Boys And Girls Who Join It!


THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB is an organization for boys and girls with its own officers, creed and ritual (ceremonies) etc. Regular weekly meetings will be held at 10:00 A. M. every Saturday in the form of matinee meetings at the COLONIAL THEATRE, which is launching and will sponsor the club. In addition to the special, all-different programs to be held each Saturday in the COLONIAL THEATRE, stunts, try-outs and contests will be staged and numerous other events, outings, etc., arranged for members. In short, there will be something doing all the time for Mickey and Minnie Mice as boys and girls who are members of the Mickey Mouse Club are known. Officers to be appointed temporarily at next Saturday's matinee-meeting are: Junior Chief Mickey Mouse; Chief Mickey Mouse; Junior Master of Ceremonies; Song Leader; Cheer Leader; Courier; Color Bearer and Two Sergeants-at-Arms. Regular elections will be held the first Saturday of each month thereafter. All boys and girls who secure membership application blanks (they are available now at any of the Official Mickey Mouse Stores listed below) and present same properly filled out at the COLONIAL THEATRE will, through the courtesy of the co-operating merchants or Official Mickey Mouse Stores, be admitted FREE to the first or opening Mickey Mouse Club matinee-meeting at the COLONIAL THEATRE at 10:00 A. M. next Saturday. So, boys and girls, you can see that filling out and filing a membership application blank right way, are important. Those who do not only enjoy next Saturday noon's Mickey Mouse Club matinee free but will at the following matinee, a week from next Saturday, be given their Official Mickey Mouse Club membership cards and buttons. That's all--except to once more urge you to lose no time, boys and girls, in calling at one of the Official Mickey Mouse Stores for your Mickey Mouse Club membership application Blank! These are free and will be furnished you gladly. Then be sure to fill out and bring it with you to the COLONIAL THEATRE next Saturday noon so you can enjoy the first or Opening Mickey Mouse Club matinee FREE!

Mickey Mouse Club Creed

 "I will be a square shooter in my home, in school, on the playground, and wherever I may be. I will be truthful and honorable, and strive, always, to make myself a better and more useful little citizen. I will respect my elders and help the aged, the helpless and children smaller than myself. In short I will be a good American."


Mickey Mouse Club Yell

"Handy! Dandy!

Sweet as candy!

Happy kids are we!

Eenie! Ickie!

Minnie! Mickey!

Mickey Mouse Club Song

Minnie's Yoo Hoo


"I'm the guy they call little Mickey Mouse.

Got a sweetie down in the chicken house

Neither fat or skinny

She's the horse's whinny

She's my little Minnie Mouse.

When it's feeding time for the animals,

And they howl and growl like the cannibals,

I just turn my heel,

To the hen house steal

And you hear me sing this song:



Oh--the old tom cat

With his meow, meow, meow,

Old houn' dog

With his bow, wow, wow,

The crow's caw, caw

And the mule's hee haw

Gosh what a racket

Like an old buzz saw!

I have listened to the cuckoo

Cuck his cuck-oo--

And I've heard the rooster

Cock his doodle doo-oo--

With the cows and the chickens

They all sound like the dickens,

When I hear my little Minnie's



"Oh the blue bird down in the cherry tree,

And the busy buzz of the bumblebee bee,

Evening bells a ringin'

Whipporwills a singin'

Well they don't mean much to me

For my heart is down in the chicken house,

Where I long to be with my Minnie Mouse,

And I'll meet her there

'Mid that fragrance rare

Sing to her this melody--
