Many remember the Disney Channel’s wildly popular The All-New Mickey Mouse Club which aired in the late ‘80s well into the ‘90s. It was similar to a “‘Saturday Night Live’ for kids” featuring interviews, skits, variety show-styled razzle dazzle, and of course, lots of singing.
Long before his album of Disney hits with a Rock ‘n Roll Twist Kingdom Classics was produced, Peter Alden did some singing on one MMC episode in particular – and we’ve got the video for you! Other actors in this episode also went on to have pretty bright futures. Watch for JC Chasez from NSYNC, Keri Russell from the TV Series “Felicity” recording artist Jennifer McGill and more.
Check out this episode of the show where you’ll find Pete singing beautifully as an “Elvis Impersonator.” Just fast forward to 4:43-6:00 to save time.
More about the show:
The Mickey Mouse Club’s Emerald Cove was a 1993-1995 American soap-opera based television series on the Disney Channel in a genre called ‘dramedy’, a mix of drama and comedy and a serial from the fifth, sixth and seventh seasons of The Mickey Mouse Club (MMC). It was produced by Blue Wave Productions, Inc. in association with Les Choux Company.
Emerald Cove was an updated version of the classic 60’s beach movies. It centered around a group of surfers, musicians, and party lovers. Many of the episodes involved the band called “High Density” trying to get a job playing at Emerald Cove, a fictional local club that was filmed and located in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
Other continuing themes are the problems that the teenagers encounter while trying to sort out their love lives over the summer, and deciding about college.
