All of the ’90s Mouseketeers


“The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” ran for seven seasons between 1989 and 1994.

“The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” was also referred to as the “MMC.”

“The All-New Mickey Mouse Club,” which featured young performers including Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera before they were pop icons, was a reboot of the 1955 variety series “The Mickey Mouse Club.”

After the original show’s run ended in 1959, there was another imagining, named “The New Mickey Mouse Club,” between 1977 and 1979.

The third version, which started in 1989, featured comedy sketches, parodies, music videos, celebrity guests, and a cast full of soon-to-be stars.

Starting from the first cast in 1989 up until the show’s last season was filmed in 1994, here are the stars of “The All New-Mickey Mouse Club” and what they’re up to now.

Jennifer McGill joined “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” in its first season and remained through season seven. She’d been a pageant star before joining the show.

While growing up in Texas, McGill had “almost a clean sweep of nearly 50 pageant victories from age seven,” according to her website. At one pageant, an agent approached her and her mom and asked if she’d audition for “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club,” which she joined when she was 10. 

She said the show made her an”unsuccessful perfectionist” during a 2021 interview with InnerTeenment News.

“I became an unsuccessful perfectionist when it came to my shape and comparing myself to the thinner, smaller ladies on the show,” she said.

This had a lasting impact on the way she viewed herself.

“I learned that I wasn’t as valuable because of the way I looked. Now I know that is wrong now … It’s been a huge struggle for me, but I’m turning it into a helpful, learning experience for other people,” she said.

McGill is now a speaker, worship leader, and continues to make music.

Following her time on the show, she went to New York University to take a break from Hollywood.

After the death of her mother when McGill was 24, her life “was sent into an absolute tailspin of insecurity and loss,” according to her website.

This, along with other life-struggles, inspired her to help others not go through life’s challenges alone. She is now a worship speaker and has worked on events such as the Bravehearted Girls: The Warrior Princess Quest in 2016. The event was designed for parents and guardians who want to help their daughters grow their relationship with God.

She released her debut album,”Unbreakable,” in 2017 and she still performs today. She recently opened for a September 2021 reunion concert for The Party, a group that was founded in 1990 by the Disney Channel. The members were all from season one of “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club.” 

Josh Ackerman was also on the show for all seven seasons.

Like the rest of the Mouseketeers, Ackerman sang, danced, and acted while on the show, but he expressed an interest in what went on behind the scenes.

“What I really gravitated towards was being in the edit bay after something was shot … When I wasn’t rehearsing for a song or a dance or learning lines, I loved being in the edit bays, I loved spending time with the camera guys, I loved being in the writers’ room,” he said in a 2014 interview with TV Goodness.

Since the show, he has spent a majority of his career behind the scenes.

While he did go on to have small acting roles in films and shows such as “Pearl Harbor” and “Entourage,” his behind-the-scenes experiences on the show foreshadowed his future as a director and producer.

He has directed and produced a slew of TV shows, and he co-founded Bodega Pictures, an independent production company, with film producer Ben Nurick.

He is currently the executive producer for TLC’s “You, Me and My Ex,” according to IMDb.

She still performs and has appeared in TV shows, including CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother.”

Since her time on the show, Alley has been busy: attending college, appearing in Broadway shows, and playing roles in TV shows and movies, as well as working behind the scenes, according to her website and IMDb.

She continues to reference her time as a Mouseketeer in her work: In 2006, she starred in her own one-woman show, “Look, Ma…No Ears!” In recent years, she’s toured with her comedy show “Blood, Sweat & Mouseketears​.”

Among her TV appearances, she’s been in the award-winning sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” and “Jessica Jones.”

In 2020, she reunited with 16 fellow Mouseketeers for a Christmas album, “Why? Because It’s Christmas,” to benefit people severely affected by COVID-19.

Hale appeared on “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” consistently until 1991.

She and four other Mouseketeers were chosen to be a part of the first band signed to Disney’s Hollywood Record label: The Party. The group released three original albums between 1990 and 1992 and saw moderate success. Their cover of Dokken’s “In My Dreams” was the band’s most successful hit peaking at No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100.

For the show’s fourth season, Hale and the rest of The Party were featured in segments on the show.

Hale passed away in December 2021, aged 46.

Hale remained out of the public eye in the years following her time on the show and in the band, who reunited in 2013 without her.

Hale died on December 25, 2021, according to a post on The Party’s official Facebook page.

“Early this month, she suffered a cardiac arrest that resulted in her being left in a coma. After many prayers and with her family by her side, our dearest Tiff took her last breath Christmas morning. She is now resting peacefully,” read the post.

Her costars also posted online tributes. Fellow former Mouseketeer Chasen Hampton wrote on Instagram that “the wish of most young girls in the 90’s was to be as sweet, as cool, as talented and gorgeous as Tiffini Hale.”

“Part of her magic was that she never knew how incredible she truly was,” he wrote. “She was humble, she was thoughtful and kind. She was playful and so funny. An incredible singer, character & dramatic actress , and when the music hit her dancing skills to me were unmatched by any female pop star since! She was an absolutely amazing performer & I’m so so honored to of had her in my life.”

Chasen “Chase” Hampton was an original member of “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club.”

Chasen Hampton appeared on the show for four seasons.

Disney


His initial audition was for a movie about the original Mouseketeers titled, “Why? Because We Like You.”

“They were looking for kids that look like the old Mouseketeers … I was going for Lonnie [Burr],” he told Insider in January 2021.

However, the movie was canceled and Disney executives pivoted the concept to what became “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club.” Hampton attributes some of his audition success to a chance meeting with casting directors.

“I was checking in and I saw the casting directors coming in at the other end of the lobby just randomly … they were like ‘Hey, are you here for the Mouse Club audition?’ I was like, yeah, and they said, ‘Come over here and audition right now,’ and I’m like, ‘Let’s go,'” he said. “That moment right there for me was like my lightning bolt.”

He appeared on the show from 1989 to 1991 before becoming a member of Disney’s pop group The Party.

He, along with Tiffini Hale, returned as co-hosts for season seven.

Following the show, he continued a career in music and began teaching as well.

Hampton also released two solo EPs: “Something To Believe” in 2007 and “Drugstore Girls” in 2010. 

Acting-wise, he guest-starred in popular shows of the early aughts such as “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” “The X-Files,” and “7th Heaven.”

Pampolina was a Mousketeer and also a member of The Party.

He had been performing since he was 7 and initially auditioned for what was supposed to be “Why? Because We Like You,” as well.

In a 2020 interview with “Worst Ever Podcast,” Pampolina said he did not have the strongest vocals and was frequently given rap verses instead.

“Once I booked the show, I was trying to get my vocals better … It was very intimidating there at the beginning to be around all those vocalists,” he said.

Pampolina also recalled the intense rehearsals and a particularly rigorous week when the cast was rehearsing with the original Mousekeeters from the 1950s.

“That week was brutal and they were pushing us quite a bit, and it got to the point where I ended up passing out on the set,” he said.

Pampolina continued acting and singing after the show, and he remains a member of The Party.

“I think it definitely helped in the training aspects of it, just to be focused,” she said. “To be focused on the goal that we’re accomplishing. For me, it was mostly what I liked, mostly concentrated on getting from that rehearsal and learning the songs, doing all that stuff, to getting in front of the people, the lights, the camera. That’s where I liked to be. That’s what the focus really taught me.”
