Forgotten TV Shows: Spin and Marty
The Adventures of Spin and Marty was on for three years in the mid-fifties as part of THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB. The series was set at a western boys' camp.Tim Considine played Spin, a boy of poorer means. David Stollery played Marty, who came from a well to do family. Various Mouseketeers lent a land over time, especially Annette, the real crowd- pleaser. I can still sing this song. Each episode occupied about 25 minutes. It alternated with a couple of other series they did. Very enjoyable at the time when we all wanted to be cowboys or cowgirls.
