Trivia

NBC was loyal to the show throughout the 1960s and most of the 1970s, but by 1979, ratings were declining, and they demanded changes in the format. The studio updated the visual look of the show with a disco theme song and a fancier opening sequence. This convinced NBC to renew the show until 1981. But the ratings did not improve and NBC canceled it. CBS then picked it up and featured an even more elaborate opening sequence using then-state-of-the art computer graphics. Disney canceled the show in 1983 due to the start of The Disney Channel. The show was revived in 1986 on ABC then moved to NBC in 1988. It was canceled in 1990 after 36 consecutive seasons on network television. In 1997, the show was revived by ABC as The Wonderful World of Disney (1997). See more »

"One of these many worlds will open to you!"
5 December 2001 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Certainly the original and the best of the family variety style programs.From the late 'fifties to the late 'sixties this was the high point of many an Australian family's televisual week. Walt himself singing "When You Wish Upon a Star" for the opening credits was a siren call for all the young and not so young.

One quibble however is that, in hindsight it was a rather blatant advertisement for the Disneyland theme park. The opening of each show placed the weeks story in one of the four "lands" that made up Disneyland.
