Thank goodness we're all normal now. BURBANK, CA -- A 1930's era photograph of Mickey Mouse Club members found in the Disney archives shows one thing very clearly: Disney fans used to be super-creepy. Just look at that photo. Seriously, look at it. A sizeable percentage of that group turned into serial killers, we're guessing. Or Cast Member Leads.
