    Question Ward Kimball's Mouse Factory

    When I was at Disneyland the 2nd week of July, I heard the theme song from "The Mouse Factory" and was wondering if Disney will ever release the DVD from this series? It was a pretty cool series to watch back in the mid 70's when I was a kid.

    That would be fun. I loved when all the characters would clock in. Snow White was always my favorite.

    Then again, I think I was about 5 at the time. Might not be as cool now that I'm 41, but who knows?

    I think I've heard the song in Toontown.

    Couldn't find the Opening, but here's the closing, Minnie's Yoo Hoo

    Here is the opening, it was originally broadcast in 1971

    Looks like they had played it on the Disney Channel at some point in time.

    Aladdin, that was great!! Thanks for posting that. I'm realizing now that I was only 4 that year. Can't believe I remember it!

    Ahhhh, Kurt Russell. He was dreamy ~

    That opening song sounds very Spike Jones, don't you think?

    Thank you, Aladdin!

    I couldn't remember it from other people describing it, but when I saw that it's almost if I remember seeing it yesterday!

    Yeah...Ward Kimball loved the Spike Jones style. He even created a Spike Jones version of the song "It's Fun To Be Free" that was played in the queue area of the World of Motion attraction at EPCOT Center. Disney also released it for sale on the first official EPCOT LP record and cassette.

    Nice! I wish I could remember that. I'll have to look it up online.

    You're my kind of guy Opus.
