3 October - Children's Shows

Weather: When it storms on the first Sunday in the month, it will storm every Sunday that month.
Well, it didn't storm - it was just overcast and chilly.
Today, two children's shows debuted in 1955:

The original Mickey Mouse Club show on ABC-TV 

(Fun with Music.  Spin and Marty.  "Gold dubloons and pieces of eight, handed down to Applegate...".  "A Mousecartoon for you and me!"  Talent Roundup and Honorary Mouseketeers.  Can you sing the Club March?  M-I-C  K-E-Y  M-O-U-S-Eeeeeeee)

and Captain Kangaroo on CBS-TV.  

Mr. Greenjeans, Mr. Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose, Dancing Bear. Tom Terrific and Crabby Appleton.

Just more of the cultural landscape for rapidly aging Boomers.
