Mouseketeers, Alive and Dead

Last updated: 15 December 2009

This is a list of Mousketeers from the 1950's Mickey Mouse Club shows. The "Actors and Actresses" category in our main data base mainly lists the Mousketeers who were on the show for three seasons, and/or those who became famous afterward. The list below, on the other hand, attempts to be as comprehensive as possible.

The seasons were as follows:
  • Season 1: 1955-56
  • Season 2: 1956-57
  • Season 3: 1957-58
  • Season 4: 1958-59 (only a small amount of new material was filmed in early 1958; the rest of the shows were clips repackaged from the first two seasons).
The table shows which season(s) each Mousketeer was on the show. The following notation is used:
  • *** Was on the show for the entire season
  • -** Joined the show during the season, and stayed for the rest of it
  • **- Began the season, but left the show before the season ended
  • -*- Joined the show during the season and left during the same season
