Er...we think we'll sit this meeting out. This is a photo from the first-ever gathering of the Mickey Mouse Club in 1955, which has a rather spooky appearance. The Mickey Mouse Club later became a variety television show that had a mostly teenage cast which changed regularly. Some famous former members include Justin Timberlake, Keri Russell, Britney Spears, and consummate gentleman Ryan Gosling. The show was Walt Disney's second production venture in creating a television series, and it included a newsreel, a cartoon, music, and comedy segments.

The Mouseketeer Roll Call was another popular part of the show, where the performers of the day would introduce themselves to the audience. The show also featured serials, where teenagers would face common challenges they would overcome with common sense or the help of elders. The show's content, combined with young and relatable talent, sparked a nationwide phenomenon of club meetings.

Nope, it's not Super Man, it's Commander Cody! The superhero "Commando Cody" was originally portrayed by George Wallace and later Judd Holdren. The character's mission in this series was to uncover the cause of climate change before it was too late. "Commando Cody: Sky Marshal of the Universe" (1955) and "Radar Men From the Moon" (1952) are two of the serials in which the character appeared. Another 12-chapter serial titled "Zombies of the Stratosphere" was written as a direct sequel to "Radar Men from the Moon", but the main character's name was changed from Commando Cody to "Larry Martin" during production.
