Come On Everybody and MOUSERCISE!

The Year was 1982
and the Mousercise Album hit the stores!
And 1 year later the Disney Channel
hit the Air Waves!

One of the the Premiere Show's was:
1 Host in Head band and Leg warmers,
Characters in sweats and a bunch of kids jumping around
What a Show!!!But you could also buy a VHS and let the kids wear them self's out!
Remember these?
For "Mickey's Month", at Disneyland, in 1983
Kellyn Plasschaert
[The Host of the Show]
Made an appearance at the Park...
on a float next to Small World...
[Behind the float in now the entrance to Toon Town]
[In the last photo it looks like the kid in the center,
in pink, was so happy to see her
Disney Channel Stars LIVE
she S**t her pants!]

This is Kellyn's Head Shot ...
She was a Great gal!
Super sweet and really fun!
I was sorry to hear Kellyn passed away in April 2009

Kellyns Father, Alex Plasschaert
a native Californian had been a dancer,
choreographer, and stuntman.
He was one of the dancing chimney sweeps in "Mary Poppins,"

a Dancer in "The Happiest Millionaire"
and he danced with Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire,
Ginger Rogers, and Debbie Reynolds,
and with Barbra Streisand in "Hello Dolly" as well!
He was also a stuntman in many movies
and is responsible for coordinating several
live stunt shows at Universal Studios.

and choreographed for shows at Disneyland...

There's a whole generation that grew up with
Kellyn and the Mousercise Gang...

Come on Everybody and Mousercise,
Mickey Mousericse!!!!

Growing up in the 1980s, I had the MOUSERCISE and still play it to this very day. Sadly, I didn't get to see the show until the 1990s when it was still on the "old" Disney Channel. Years ago, I found the VHS which is the only source of the show I have. I had wondered if there was a parade to tie in to Mousercise as I recalled seeing an TV ad for Mickey's Month. Was this a short cavalcade or just show near Small World?
