From Julia W – When the Mickey Mouse Club went off the air in 1959, when did it come back in reruns?
Mr. Pop History - After Walt Disney left ABC. Syndicated reruns began on September 3, 1962 with WNEW-TV (channel 5) in New York. Annette Funicello and the gang became popular all over again with a new audience. Mickey reruns soon spread and the rest is pop history.
