“We wanted to do an ’80s ver
sion of the original,” he said.
‘ ‘This show is very current and it’s
about the way kids think, dress and
talk right now.”
Fashion is more important to
children in 1989 than it was 30
years ago, Moroney said.
‘ The kids on the show wear the
same fashions any 11- or 15-year
old would wear at the mall,” he
The clothes seen on the show
aren’t meant to be overly trendy,
Moroney said.
The mouse club of the ’50s was
very different from other shows, he
‘‘The original show was
ground-breaking in that something
different happened every day.”
The new club features a daily
theme, too. Monday is music day,
Tuesday is guest day, Wednesday
is anything-can-happen day,
Thursday is party day and Friday is
talent day.
The show is centered on the 11
mouseketeers, ages 11 to 14.
The mouseketeers were re
cruited from around the country.

“ It’s a fun show with things like
the humorous side of dating or
