Mickey Birthday parade banner

 Mickey Mouse celebrated his 50th Birthday on November 18, 1978.  A parade was held in his honor at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World during that year.  There was also a TV special that aired on November 19, 1978 called Mickey's 50.  Mickey's 60th Birthday was celebrated in an even bigger way when Mickey's Birthdayland was constructed at the Magic Kingdom in 1988.

Mickey Mouse Birthday Parade Song

 The first part of this song was reused several times throughout the years at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.  It was also used with different lyrics but the same melody in the 1990 Sing A Long Songs video "Disneyland Fun".  The record below was released in the UK by former Monkee Davy Jones "and a Million Kids" on Warner Bros records in 1978.  It was written by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschorn, the same people who wrote the Universe of Energy song.  While this version was not used in the parade, it was an authorized song by the Disney company and a portion of it was sung by generic singers in the second half of the parade soundtrack.  The B side was the non-Disney song "You Don't Have to Be Country Boy to Sing a Country Song".  

Well Jiminy Cricket, there's Winnie the Pooh.  Donald and Mickey and all of their friends too.
They'll be marching right down Main Street, U.S.A..
They'll chase your worries and your cares away.  
Join Pluto and Goofy for just a little while.
They will delight you, they're bound to make you smile.
You'll hear laughs and shouts of joy as troubles fade.
At the Mickey Mouse Birthday Parade.
