CNN PRODUCER NOTE mainstgazt told me of the Mickey Mouse ears, 'are a timeless symbol of all things Disney. You would be embarrassed to put them on in public, but when you don a pair in Disneyland or Walt Disney World you feel as if you are part of a family you never knew you had. When you consider that they were originally conceived for the Mickey Mouse Club, and all that the show and cast stood for, you feel a connection to a simpler time. A time when the idea that everyone could live in harmony with one another was becoming a large part of our social consciousness and we could all see the world through the eyes of children.'
