It's “M I C. K E Y. M O U S E! Mickey Mouse!"

"Hey there, Hi there, Ho there!!" Welcome boys and girls, cats and dogs!!! I was so excited when I read that today is Mickey Mouse Day!!   Why? Because I am a child of the 50s (yes, I am a relic from the Stone Age), and when I was around five years old I was COMPLETELY obsessed with Mickey Mouse!

Every day I would watch the Mickey Mouse Club, as I am sure that many of you reading this blog did too!  ( I had the Mouse Ears also!) When the closing theme song would play, I would be sad that I had to wait until the next day for another episode.

There was no color TV back then, everything was in black and white, but in my five year old mind, Mickey was REAL!! A walking, talking, red shorts wearing ADORABLE MOUSE. I thought the kids that were members of the Mickey Mouse Club were the luckiest and coolest kids in the World!
  (I also couldn't understand why Karen spelled her name funny....but I digress....).........

I tried to share my excitement and memories of Mickey Mouse with Cody. I figured since Mickey was a MOUSE, well....cats LOVE mice, right?


I guess not..................

Anyway, hoping you all have a great weekend!
 "WHY? BECAUSE WE LIKE YOU!!!"

  1. MOL! I wonder if that was Mickey Mouse that I was chasing around my human's bathroom that time. My human wound up catching it for me... or maybe it wasn't for me, since she took it away (far away!).

  2. My mom watched this a little bit either at the end of its run or in reruns. She doesn't remember, but she loved the show.

  6. Careful Cody, a big mouse is going to eat you ...
    I remember watching Michey Mouse on the TV, when I was a child.
    I also had a subscription to a magazine called "le Journal de Mickey". It was ... a long time ago. I'm also from the stone age !

  7. Ah, those were the days, weren't they! But, Cody, you're way too young to be interested in yesteryear. A nameless mouse running through the room would be more your style. :)

  8. Ha ha...the way cats like mice might be different than the way humans do! Best to just be happy that Cody didn't eat Mickey. :)

  9. I don't recall watching it when I was little so I kind of wonder if it wasn't on the channels we got in the 70's/80's but my son loved the newer version of Mickey Mouse clubhouse when he was younger. Disney and Cartoon Network were his jam well and Elmo of course. LOL

  10. It could be worse, Cody. She could have stuck mouse ears on you.

  11. Now, I'm feeling old LOL. Loved Mickey but the only mice are the ones Odin catches or the catnip variety xoxo

  12. The Dad watched it too, and had those ear things. I didn't know mice had a club but that's okay!

  13. Cody, I don't blame you for threatening Mickey Mouse after he snuck up on you like a total stalker! A cat has a right to defend himself, right? :)

  16. I remember the show too. I never really cared much for it- just didn't get or keep my attention.

    CODY! I made several "false moves" for you buddy! Have at it!

  17. OMG!
    We loved The Mickey Mouse Club!
    That's why the human took tap dance lessons...

  18. We're pretty sure Mickey is friendly, Cody. Go on, give that mouse a snuggle or two!

  19. What a blast from the past. I loved Mickey and the original Mickey Mouse Club. I bet my kitties would too.

  21. Fun memories. I'm not sure Cody shares your fondness for Mickey.

  22. We did not have a TV in our den...not till I was 14, and then of course all that was in the past...and not too interesting for a highschooler gal, MOL! Yup, I am from the 50's too...yikes! MOL!

    I do have a Minnie Mouse somewhere in a box, I got her when I was 7, and my brother got a mickey when he was three:)
    But I have no idea where that one is:(

    Cody, you look like you just might have at MrMickey!!

  23. I was also obsessed with Mickey Mouse when I was a kid. I had tons of stuffed toys, stickers, pencils and books with Mr. Mouse starring. I was told that I once said I was going to marry him. I must have been about three or four. Today, I have abandoned any thoughts on tying the knot but I do still adore Mickey. :)
