The Mickey Mouse Club is an American variety television show which aired intermittently from 1955 to 1996 and returned to social media in 2017. Created by Walt Disney and produced by Walt Disney Productions, the program was first televised for four seasons, from 1955 to 1959, by ABC.

The show was revived three times after its initial 1955–1959 run on ABC, first from 1977 to 1979 for first-run syndication as The New Mickey Mouse Club, then from 1989 to 1996 as The All-New Mickey Mouse Club (also known to fans as MMC from 1993 to 1996) airing exclusively on cable television's The Disney Channel, and again in 2017 with the moniker Club Mickey Mouse airing exclusively on internet social media.

Adventures of Superman is an American television series based on comic book characters and concepts that Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created in 1938. The show was the first television series to feature Superman and began filming in 1951 in California on RKO-Pathé stages and the RKO Forty Acres back lot. Cereal manufacturer Kellogg's sponsored the show.

The show's first two seasons (episodes 1–52, 26 titles per season) were filmed in black and white; seasons three through six (episodes 53–104, 13 titles per season) were filmed in color but were originally telecast in black and white. Adventures of Superman was not shown in color until 1965, when the series was syndicated to local stations.

For many years a curtain of mystery has surrounded the activities of "Mad" Martin (Walter Soderling), an eccentric old recluse living in Whisper Canyon. His only companion is Brillant, a dwarfed horse with a highly developed mentality. And his only contacts with the outside world are his pretty niece, Ann Martin (Helen Deverall), his lawyer Frank Nolan (Charles Miller) and Ann's sweetheart Freddie (George J. Lewis), a stagecoach driver who occasionally delivers mysterious packages of book to Martin's cabin. He is found murdered in the hills near his cabin and Brillant is missing. The Three Mesquiteers, Tucson Smith (Bob Steele), Stony Brooke (Tom Tyler) and Lullaby Joslin (Jimmie Dodd) are riding through the territory and capture Brillany, but are quickly pounced upon by a posse led by Sheriff Pillsbury (Hal Prive), who accuses them of murder and has them jailed awaiting trial. That night, three men kill Deputy Bets McGee (Budd Buster), steal Brillant from the sheriff's barn and haul the little horse away in a stagecoach. Realizing that the strangers are connected to Martin's murder, the Mesquiteers break jail and give chase. The stagecoach is overtaken and although two of the henchmen escape, the third is captured. The Mesquiteers tie him up and wait for Sheriff Pillbury's posse to catch up. But when the posse arrives it is discovered that the prisoner has been stabbed to death by his pals to keep him from confessing. One again the Mesquiteers are accused of murder and, once again, they make an escape and take Brillant with them. Many more plot twists and complications follow before the mystery about Brillant is solved.
