"The Groovie Goolies" (1971)
The Mouseketeers’ debut on the opening day of Disneyland.
In actuality, the rehearsal footage of the Mouseketeers in color, July 16, 1955 (the day before the opening day). Notice some things like ears falling, a boy not included in the final number, a couple of girls with tied hair, amazing color footage and some great close-ups.

Happy Birthday Annette Joanne Funicello (October 22, 1942 – April 8, 2013)
She will forever hold a place in our hearts as one of Walt Disney’s brightest stars, delighting an entire generation of baby boomers with her jubilant personality and endless talent…Annette was well-known for being as beautiful inside as she was on the outside, and she faced her physical challenges with dignity, bravery and grace.-Bob Iger
