Minnie's Yoo-Hoo

This just in from Are Myklebust:

[In 1929 the Disney studio made two short campaign films for the newly formed «Mickey Mouse Club”.

The first one was “Minnie’s Yoo Hoo”, a kind of “sing-a-long” film with some recycled animation from “Mickey’s Follies” (1929).

The other one was a little bit shorter film with animation of Mickey (and Minnie?) Mouse combined with some live-action shots of the vaudeville actor Lawrence Clinton “Noodles” Fagan (18?? – 1931). This film is however lost . “Noodles” Fagan was quite famous in his heydays (the 1910’s), but is completely forgotten now.]

I always assumed that the 1930's Mickey Mouse Club only had one film made i.e Minnie's Yoo-Hoo I'm pleased to learn that there was another but its unfortunate that film is lost. IS there more information known about this lost, Mickey Mouse club, film was this another reuse of animation like Minnie's Yoo-Hoo or was the animation completely new?
