Widower Steve Douglas raises three sons with the help of his father-in-law, and is later aided by the boys' great-uncle. An adopted son, a stepdaughter, wives, and another generation of sons join the loving family in later seasons.
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.

I'd like to know why The Disney Channel discontinued "Vault Disney"? The section "The Wonderful World of Disney" with the castle in the background, "When you wish upon a star" was playing in the foreground and finally Tinkerbell flying around and using her wand was a great highlight. Anybody know where this reel or site is? I'm looking around all the Disney and classic TV sites. If there is a DVD available or if the Disney powers that be say no, why not? I guess we miss that type of programming. The show use to be on NBC for years. The Disney Channel use to run that segment. If there is a way to get a hold of this program or footage, let me know.
