Did anyone else wear this record out as a kid? From '79, comes Mickey Mouse Disco - a mix of originals and discofied Disney classics like Its a Small World. I'm not a disco fan today but my 4-year old self danced his little ass off to this! According to Wiki this record actually reached #35 on Billboard and was certified double platinum!

Best tracks: Disco Mickey Mouse, Macho Duck and Mousetrap.

I was a little too old for this at the time...but I do remember it.  On 8-track.

I remember it, but I never owned it.  My guess is a friend must have had it.

I had two copies of this record but...Mousetrap was not one of my favorites on the album.

Disney had some of the best musicians in the film industry at the time.  They took their music seriously so it really is no wonder that Mickey's disco album did as good as it did for a kid's record.  I also remember the picture albums Disney released based on their animated films.  But this album was one of my favorites.  My other favorite would make this one blush.  I still remember the lyrics to these songs...is that a bad thing?

I had that album! I also had a mail-order set that was two records of Christmas songs and one record of Disney's Christmas Carol.

Supernatural, perhaps...baloney, perhaps not.
