All of the ABC episodes were filmed in color, even though they aired in black and white. In general, ABC did not broadcast in color until the mid 1960s. During the years on ABC, the show went by the title of "Disneyland", with one of four weekly sub titles,either "Fantasyland", "Frontierland","Adventureland" or or "Tomorrowland", depending on the category of that week's show. When the show moved to NBC, in 1961, the different sub titles were dropped. Additionally, many of the ABC episodes that re-aired on NBC were shown in color and have been that way ever since, even those episodes aired on The Disney Channel as well as those released in the theater ("The Adventures of Davy Crockett") and on home video.

Walt Disney's first shot at the television industry (actually, MMC was the 2nd Disney show, not the 1st) was with "Walt Disney Presents," a long-living TV anthology series that began in Disneyland, California in 1954, went on through the 60s and 70s with Disney short compilations and TV-edited Disney theatrical releases, and ended in the early 80s when huuuuuge VCRs were being purchased for, like, a million bucks, and everyone signed up for pay-per-view to watch the OLD Disney Channel in 1983.
What I like about this show: I've seen this on the Old Disney Channel in July 1997 (and several months thereafter), and it had stuff like nature documentaries, short cartoons, and more. The movies - they didn't show because it was part of the Vault Disney block (think of it as old school Nick at Nite, Disney style). And, on a bad new movie on DVD (LOL), "Pirates of the Caribbean," the bonus feature on disc 2 had the "PotC" ride at Disneyland opening episode on there. I remember this from the Old Disney Channel one late 1998 night.
"Walt Disney Presents" is a wonderful show, especially in color like the theme suggested!!!!!
