Children’s programming in the late 80’s/early 90’s was spectacularly bedazzled with bright colors, lasers, tacky rock songs, over-exuberant laugh tracks, and oodles of random flashing animal print. Nowhere did this pageantry shine brighter than on Kids Incorporated and Disney’s MMC revamp The All New Mickey Mouse Club. Think Glee, but filmed on a sound stage in your garage on scrunchy-steroids. However, both of these shows hold a special place in the hearts of most older millennials.
While both casts have produced a handful of BIG superstars, let’s take a tally to see which show’s 80’s realness factor is still running strong in 2014.
Just to whet your appetite, here are the intros to both programs (and singing along is required):
