MMC

Show Summary

The MMC (also known as the New Mickey Mouse Club) was a show that aired on the Disney Channel in 1989 and ended its run in 1995. Matt Cassella had a knack for casting incredible talent; singing, dancing, acting, etc. More than a few of the cast members went on to be big stars (Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Keri Russell, Ryan Gosling, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Zachary Jaydon, Rhona Bennett, Tony Lucca, Ryan Gosling, etc.). The show spawned the music group "The Party," in 1990. "The Party" was comprised of 5 of the original 1989 cast members. DeeDee Mango, Albert Fields, Damon Pampolina, Tiffani Hale & Chasen Hampton had their biggest single with a cover of Dokken's song "In My Dreams." In 1993, the entire cast from Season 5 released an album called MMC and toured the country in support of the record. Season 6, which first aired in 1993, saw the addition of some of today's more famous Mouseketeers including Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling & Christina Aguilera. When executives decided to cancel the show in 1995, one of the biggest reasons given was because they didn't think the younger, new cast members could hold the show on their own. The popularity of the show prompted the cable channel E! to do a "True Hollywood Story" on the cast, but unfortunately many of the cast were not able to be or willing to be interviewed. There have been countless rumors of a new incarnation of the show or a MMC reunion, but nothing has firmed up as of now.moreless

  • I was obsessed with this show for a good part of my childhood.

    9.9
    I was hooked on this show from day one. I was even an honoray member. I collected their trading cards. I was so bummed out when we went to Disney World I couldn't go to a taping cause I was too young, yet I'm older than Britney. The first "class" of MMC produced the musical group "The Party" who I also was obsessed with. The mini series starred pre-90210 Jason Priestly (Teen Angel) and Shannon Doherty (The Secret of Lost Creek) before they started using the MMC cast like in "Emerald Cove". Then came the group "MMC" starring Tony Lucca and JC Chavez. I stood in line at Target or Sears to add to my collection of their autographs. I can't wait for this to come out on DVD. I could still recite some of the skits.moreless
  • The Mickey Mouse Club ran for 5 years and spawned some of the biggest stars in music/television/entertainment today.

    10
    The Mickey Mouse Club (MMC) ran for over 300 episodes in it's 5+ year run on The Disney Channel. The show spawned mega stars like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Keri Russel & JC Chasez, as well as some of less mentioned stars like En Vogue's Rhona Bennett & Singer/Songwriter/Actor/Producer Zachary Jaydon.



    The series aired Monday - Friday, 5:30/4:30 CST during Seasons 1-5. It aired Monday - Thursday, 5:30/4:30 CST Season 6. In its final season it aired Thursdays only at 7:30/6:30 CST. The show premiered Monday, April 24, 1989, ended production in 1994, and ran reruns until Thursday, May 31, 1996. The series was also syndicated to local television stations throughout the United States and Canada. Seasons 3, 5 and 7 had the most episodes. Seasons 4 and 6 were shorter, having about 35 episodes each.moreless
  • My strong opinion.

    10
    What makes me sad is that on my 13th birthday I watch the last airing of MMC. Of course I cried, I was 13. It was one sad birthday to know that your favorite show no more on that day. Bring it back. We have Hannah Montana, Camp Rock, H.S. Musical. What makes those any different then what we had? I tell you it was style, class, variety, and always caught my attention. I watch Disney with my kids. It's not the same. It had morals back then. Shows now teach our kids to mouth back at us and be rude. I never got taught that then. So bring back the MMC and the old days of Disney. It's how things should be.moreless
  • The best of the 3 mouse clubs.

    9.5
    This 3rd incarnation was like Saturday Night Live for teens, except for the serials & Hall of Fame day guests.



    1955 standouts had Annette Funicello & Bobby Burgess while the 1977 standouts had Pop Attmore & Lisa Whelchel. But there are three that made this version worthwhile.



    Mowava Pryor: The first woman Mouseketeer ever. She & adult host Fred Newman, made a great team before leaving in 1991.



    Chase Hampton; His signature was his hair style!



    Tony Lucca; The only mouseketeer that was allowed to play a live musical instrument (believe it or not) on the show. He played the guitar a couple of times, starting with "More Than Words".moreless
  • "The All-New Mickey Mouse Club" is one of the first shows of its kind.

    9.3
    This '90s version of the classic '50s variety show features a new batch of Mousekeeters as they were ready to take Disney by storm. The show was responsible for helping launch the careers of some of today's brightest young stars, like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Keri Russell, Ryan Gosling, and Christina Aguilera, just to name a few. The show was canceled back in 1994. But a lot of people believed that "MMC" is one of Disney Channel's very first successful shows. To this day, "The All-New Mickey Mouse Club" will always be remembered as the first show to showcase young talent.moreless
