    This may not help you much, but I recall some of the information
re the Mouseketeers.   Darlene is Darlene Gillespie.  Cubby was Carl
"Cubby" O'Brien, who as recently as the 1970s was playing drums with
the band "The Carpenters".  Jimmie Dodd, one of the two adult
Mousketeers, passed away shortly after their heyday in the late 1950s.
    There was a popular book called "Walt, Mickey, and I" by former
Mousketeer Paul Peterson (also of the "Donna Reed Show") which
discussed some of their comings and goings.
