Gather up Susie, Jack and Joe!
Join the talent roundup!
Here's a question for baby boomers. On the original Mickey Mouse Club in the 50's on Friday's Talent Roundup Day, there was a teenage magician who did the dancing cane (among other effects). It was the first time I had ever seen the dancing cane and it fooled me badly although I knew the working of other floating effects. Does anyone recall who the young magician was? As far as I recall, this was the only time that Talent Roundup Day featured a magic act. It was very well done and the performer actually danced. I thought at the time that it was very Astaire-ish in white tie and tails.
