"Mickey Mouse March" is the theme song for The Mickey Mouse Club, a children's television series that originally ran from 1955 to 1959 on ABC. It has since become the official theme song of Mickey Mouse and can be heard in many Disney productions, as well as on the videos, Disney Sing Along Songs: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Magic Years. The song was reprised with the slower "Now it's time to say goodbye" verse and different lyrics at the end of each episode that became the show's alma mater. The song remains popular as a children's music standard. In the show's opening the song is partially performed by the mute titular character Dumbo and Jiminy Cricket.

The song was written by the Mickey Mouse Club host Jimmie Dodd. It was published by Hal Leonard Corporation, July 1, 1955. Dodd wrote other songs used over the course of the series. Dodd was a guitarist and musician hired by Walt Disney as a songwriter. Dodd also wrote the “theme day” songs accompanying it on the show.

Trivia

  • At the end of the original theme song, a different ending would occur involving Donald attempting to hit a gong with the words "Mickey Mouse Club" on it. Inevitably, something funny would happen, such as Donald being struck by lightning, Donald hitting the gong, but no sound until he gets closer, Donald attempting to strike the gong with a cannon, or even Donald just hitting a triangle instead. Matt Groening has stated that this ever-changing gag was what inspired him to do a different "couch gag" ending of the opening sequence on The Simpsons.
  • Scrooge McDuck makes his animated debut in the theme song, popping out of the Big Bad Wolf's hat, with The Country Cousin popping out of his hat, followed by Jiminy Cricket.
  • In the Kingdom Hearts series, the song is the theme music for the world Disney Castle.
  • In The Prince and the Pauper, the Weasels were singing a Pete version of the song.
  • Former Lizzie McGuire star Hilary Duff covered "Mickey Mouse March" for the 2008 Disney Mobile Cell Phone commercial. The commercial has only aired in Japan.
  • A shortened version of the song is included in Disney On Ice.
  • In Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers, after Pete kidnaps Mickey and takes him to his dungeon, he mockingly sings the line "Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! You're as welcome as can be!" The song is even credited in the film's credits because of this one line.
  • In the PlayStation 2 video game, Disney Golf, an instrumental rendition of the Mickey Mouse March can be heard on all 18 holes featured in the American Course.
  • The reprise version was heard when the happy, blissful version of Donald sings to Mickey from the episode "Split Decision" in the Mickey Mouse television series.
  • In Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Mickey and his friends sing the song in the episode "Donald's Hiccups" on Clarabelle's TV Show.
  • In Mickey and the Roadster Racers, part of the line "Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! You're as welcome as can be!" was said during Mickey and Jiminy Johnson’s secret handshake in the episode “Mickey’s Wild Tire”.
  • In the Season 6 episode of Full House "The House Meets the Mouse Part 2", an instrumental version of the song can be heard when Michelle's family finally finds her after she ran away from D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy.
  • A distorted and slightly out-of-tune version of the tune can be heard in the Wii game, Epic Mickey. It occasionally plays in the background during Mickey's visit to Mickeyjunk Mountain. The music in this area can vary depending on the player's moral choices, so the jingle only tends to play if the player made good choices before getting to this area of the game.
  • Philip Sparke arranged a Brass Band version of the Mickey Mouse March as well.
  • It, along with many other aspects of the Mickey Mouse Club, was parodied in the episode of Muppets Tonight Cindy Crawford hosted. With lyrics that went

Frogketeers ♪ Who's the president of our society that's here for you and me? ♪ K-E-R… Kermit Are we having fun yet? Frogketeers ♪ M-I-T… Kermit That's a swell university.
