Which members of the original Mickey Mouse Club have sung "now it's time
to say goodbye to all our company..." for the last time, and when?

Hey! That's my joked!

Jimmie Dodd (adult host)
Roy Williams (Big "Mooseketeer")
Annette Funicello
Cheryl Holdridge
Doreen Tracey

that's about it for the A-listers

Dick Dodd (unrelated to host)
Tim Rooney (son of Mickey Rooney)
Don Agrati/Grady (better known for "My Three Sons")
Michael "Mike" Smith
Kevin "Moochie" Corcoran (not a Mousketeer; appeared in several MMC serials)
Angel Florez (1970s revival)
Scott Craig (1970s revival)

Does anybody remember when SNL parodied the MMC with "The Rickey Rat Club" featuring guest host Buck Henry?

"R-I-C ... See you in the sewers, suckers!
K-E-Y ... Why? because we're vermin!
R-A-T"

The cast then bounced a real live rat on a circus trampoline and it didn't make it to this net on the last bounce and scurried into the audience.

I remember that it wasn't in the original broadcast but confusingly
appeared in the rerun. It must have been done for the dress rehearsal,
got cut for time during the live show and ultimately substituted for
something deemed less interesting.

The only similar oddity I remember noticing was Matthew Broderick's
"fairy" sketch getting moved to much earlier in the show for the
rerun.

Now I'm in awe of the fact that I ever had *time* for reruns.

He crossed my mind when we were listing those who were and were not
present at the Don Adams funeral...and again more recently after the
death of David Bowie (with whom he co-starred in "The Man Who Fell To
Earth")...I get the impression that Mr Henry is more often than not in
poor health these days....r
