"The Mickey Mouse Club March" is the theme song for The Mickey Mouse Club, a children's television series that originally ran from 1955 to 1959 on ABC. It has since become the official theme song of Mickey Mouse and can be heard in many Disney productions, as well as on the videos Disney Sing Along Songs: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Magic Years. The song was reprised with the slower "Now it's time to say goodbye" verse and different lyrics at the end of each episode that became the show's alma mater. The song remains popular as a children's music standard. In the show's opening the song is partially performed by the mute titular character Dumbo and Jiminy Cricket.

The song was written by the Mickey Mouse Club host Jimmie Dodd. It was published by Hal Leonard Corporation, July 1, 1955. Dodd wrote other songs used over the course of the series. Dodd was a guitarist and musician hired by Walt Disney as a songwriter. Dodd also wrote the “theme day” songs accompanying it on the show.

  • Former Lizzie McGuire star Hilary Duff covered "Mickey Mouse Club March" for the 2008 Disney Mobile Cell Phone commercial. The commercial has only aired in Japan.
  • A shortened version of the song is included in Disney On Ice.
  • In Mickey, Donald and Goofy: The Three Musketeers, after Pete kidnaps Mickey and takes him to his dungeon, he mockingly sings the line "Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! You're as welcome as can be!" The song is even credited in the film's credits because of this one line.
  • In the PlayStation 2 video game, Disney Golf, an instrumental rendition of the Mickey Mouse March can be heard on all 18 holes featured in the American Course.
  • The reprise version was heard when the happy version of Donald sings to Mickey from the episode Split Decisions in the Mickey Mouse television series.

  • A distorted and slightly out-of-tune version of the tune can be heard in the Wii game, Epic Mickey. It occasionally plays in the background during Mickey's visit to Mickeyjunk Mountain. The music in this area can vary depending on the player's moral choices, so the jingle only tends to play if the player made good choices before getting to this area of the game.
