Freeze Frame! - Cowboy Camp at the Triple R

In Pixar's classic Toy Story 2, Andy heads to cowboy camp, setting off the chain of events that sends Woody, Buzz and company on journeys of both adventure and self realization. But just exactly where was cowboy camp? Andy's shirt provides the answer: the Triple R Ranch. This was the setting of three Mickey Mouse Club serials, The Adventures of Spin and Marty, The Further Adventures of Spin and Marty, and The New Adventures of Spin and Marty. The series were featured on the Mickey Mouse Club from 1955 to 1957.

Campers there were distinguished by their fashionable Triple R Ranch white t-shirts, as modeled here by series stars David Stollery and Tim Considine.
