Hardy Boys on DVD

Hardyboysdvd The San Diego Union Tribune reviews the newly released Walt Disney Treasures – The Mickey Mouse Club Featuring the Hardy Boys and find it stands the test of time.

Fifty years after it debuted on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” the “Hardy
Boys” serial retains its entertainment value surprisingly well in the
sixth set of four “Walt Disney Treasures” DVDs.

Starring Tim Considine as Frank Hardy and Tommy
Kirk as his younger brother Joe, the first of two serials presented
here, “The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure,” coincidentally feeds the
fascination with pirates so successfully marketed through Disney’s
“Pirates of the Caribbean” movies and theme-park ride.

I’ll admit I grew up on reruns of this stuff. Glad to see it getting the ‘Treasures’ treatment. (Read)

    When is Disney going to have the complete Seasons 1 thru 4 of the Mickey Mouse Club on DVD? Just as they were in the 50’s. The excitement of the several episodes of “Annette”, “The Hardy Boys”, “Spin and Marty”, and “Corky and White Shadow” filled my imagination as a child! Each of the programs were assembled in such a way as to keep my attention throughout the entire show… and wanting more! I can honestly say that the series of features were more interesting when they were “fed” to us in small portions. So Disney… Please, please, please… give us, the baby boomers, seasons 1,2,3 & 4 of the Mickey Mouse Club… just as we saw them! Thanks!!! P.S. Add the 25th MMC Reunion / Anniversary on, too! It was so great to see them all again!!! Gary Chidester
