Mickey Visits the Partridge Family

{Editor’s Note:  Today we introduce a great friend of mine, Lee, who is from North of the Border and is one that I used to write with at Chip & Company.  In doing so, we are also delving into the realm of Television, and looking at different shows that have had a Disney influence on them!  We hope you enjoy, please give Lee a warm welcome!}

My wife and I love to watch old TV shows. We find the 70’s and 80’s, while they delivered horrible fashion and car design, at least gave us great sitcoms! Recently I was able to pick up the complete series of The Partridge Family on DVD for only $30 at Wal-Mart and we are making our way through the first season.

Imagine our surprise when a famous mouse appeared in the episode entitled My Son, The Feminist (episode 12). See if you can spot Mickey in this picture:

Partridge Family Mickey 1

Time’s a wastin’, found him yet?

If you said the vintage Mickey Alarm Clock over Shirley Jones’ left shoulder, you have a good eye! But just so you can see it a bit better, here is a bigger image:

Partridge Family Mickey 2

Not very clear, but a definite confirmation of a Mickey sighting!

Please check back from time to time as I will be sharing other Disney celebrity sightings from The Partridge Family as well as The Twilight Zone, The Andy Griffith Show, and others.

Say, have you ever spotted a Disney Celeb hiding out in your favorite sitcom? If so, let us know in the comments below!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia – This Day in Disney History!

Wordless Wednesday - Tom Sawyer Island Today, as you all probably know, is April Fools Day!  I won’t even pretend to have the imagination that some of my friends do when it comes to April Fools Jokes, so I didn’t do any sort of spoof post for you.  However, for today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia, I do have a quote to share with you, from the incredible Mark Twain, that I got from the “This Day in Disney History” site:

“The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year.”

With that in mind, I thought I would share some of the unusual posts that I have seen around the block today, let’s see if you can guess whether any of them are true or fake!

Is Disney Springs adding Wal-Mart to it’s chain of stores that will be there?

Is the Disney Vacation Club axing the plans for the DVC Resort at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa?

Are High-Adventure Campsites the next in line for DVC?

So, no real trivia this week!  I hope that’s okay with you all, but please, check out the rest of the posts below for some real Disney Trivia, and thanks for stopping by!
