If you were conscious in the twentieth century, you’ve probably watched some iteration of the Mickey Mouse Club. It aired in the 1950s, the late ’70s, and from the late ’80s to the mid ’90s. The latest version featured child stars who went to become major A-listers, like Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell, and more. In honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the revival, watch some truly hilarious YouTube videos of those baby stars.
The best Ryan Gosling video. Hey, girl, why is your shirt SO BIG? It’s basically a nightgown! Also, he just gives it so hard. Why wasn’t he invited to be in *NSYNC?
The best Christina Aguilera video. How does her voice sound exactly the same? And how is she able to make that enormous voice come out of that tiny body?
The best Britney Spears video. Her little voice is so jazzy! Also, she had the moves from birth. I miss Britney’s dancing.
The best Keri Russell video. Yeah, she’s great on The Americans and broke our hearts as Felicity, but she really has robbed the world of a pop career.
The best JC Chasez video. What you have here is a game show sketch in which JC plays Justin Timberlake’s older brother. It’s almost too perfect for words.
And the cutest one of all. The best Justin Timberlake video. It’s tiny JT giving you a tour of his hometown of Memphis. He and his buddies are all wearing hugely oversized clothing, but the best part is that Justin introduces his friend Trace Ayala, who is still his BFF and business partner to this day.
Did you watch the Mickey Mouse Club back in the day? Do you remember seeing these stars? Do you think that Keri Russell and Ryan Gosling should give pop music a go? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
