Another Mouseketeer leaves the clubhouse - Karen Pendleton

Watching the Mouseketeers drop one by one is kind of morbid. The remaining ones are in their seventies and approaching eighty.

Karen Pendleton was one of the youngest members.

The former child star was one of only nine kids who appeared on the beloved series during its entire run from 1955 until 1959. She was paired with fellow Mouseketeer Cubby O’Brien in the show’s closing number, “Alma Mater.”

According to the outlet, Pendleton was recruited to audition for “The Mickey Mouse Club” when producers visited dancing schools in Los Angeles in hopes of finding children to try out for a spot on the show.

Karen and Cubby (who's still around). Bobby is still around at age 78. I remember thinking that he landed a sweet gig with Lawrence Welk after the Mouseketeers. Whatever pays the bills, right? Cubby also ended up with Welk for awhile, but had a pretty good career as a drummer.
