Celebrating Spin and Marty on Storyboard


My latest contribution to Storyboard, the blog of the Walt Disney Family Museum has been posted today.  The Museum's featured movie of the month is a collection of episodes from The Adventures of Spin and Marty, the popular Mickey Club serial from the 1950s.  The article, Vinyl Magic - Yippi-A, Yippi-I, Yippi-O!, showcases the program's trademark tune, "The Triple-R Song."  I am also very happy to be in the company of Mickey Mouse Club historian Lorraine Santoli, who penned for Storyboard a wonderful article on Spin and Marty entitled Saddle Up Boys, and Saddle Up Well.

For my 11th birthday my mother surprised me with a book - the Young Adult novelization of SPIN & MARTY. I loved that present so much (even over the flashier, more expensive ones) that I became hooked. Not only on the TV serial but on books. I credit that book with turning me into a reader, and I am forever grateful.

Actually, I wouldn't mind rereading that book, now that I think of it.
