What’s something unequivocally cuter than Ryan Gosling in a suit? Probably only Ryan Gosling, the 12-year-old, recently inducted Mouseketeer from Cornwall, Ontario, being interviewed on local news. Last night, CBC Canada re-aired footage of Gosling from 1993, just after his singing, dancing, and “clean cut looks” were first discovered by Disney. Pre-teen Gosling is modest, musical, and missing a couple of teeth. He has a high-pitched, Canadian accent, is a small town dance-competition champion, and could not be more excited about his Mickey Mouse Club swag. Watch the full video clip below.
