Written by Bob Sorrentino

Barely remembered, but the concept sounded good!
26 December 2007 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

My memory of this show is incredibly fragmentary, even though I was 8 when this first aired in 1967. That said, I remembered when "Lili" was aired, and I also remember seeing The Three Stooges at the end of one of the segments.

That this show aired was ironic. Walt Disney had run his shows on ABC until 1959, when he and the network had trouble with each other. Disney then moved his show to NBC. It is very strange that this show would air, as ABC's version of Disney's Wonderful World of Color.

The concept certainly sounded good: An anthology tapping into MGM's movies, as well as original programming. It also used the team of Chuck Jones and Abe Levitow. Unfortunately, this show was canceled, joining the ranks of other Friday night shows that bit the dust in the mid-1960s. Still, it seems like such an intriguing show.
