Jimmie Dodd

James Wesley Dodd, better known as Jimmie Dodd (March 28, 1910 – November 10, 1964), was best known as the MC of the popular 1950s Walt Disney television series The Mickey Mouse Club, as well as the writer of its well-known theme song, "The Mickey Mouse Club March." A slowed-down version of this march, with different lyrics, became the alma mater that closed the show.
