I gave this seven out of ten mainly because I haven't seen it since I was a kid and am not sure how it holds up today. I remember liking it much better than "The Wonderful World of Disney" as there were far more cartoons featured and many of the guest hosts over the course of the 43 episodes produced were known to me even as a child in other forms. For example, I knew of Wally Cox from "Underdog" and "Hollywood Squares". He hosts a couple of the shows, which ironically were some of his last work. John Astin I knew from "The Addams Family". Jo Anne Worley, Johnny Brown, and Henry Gibson I knew from "Laugh-In". Jim Backus from "Mr. Magoo" and "Gilligan's Island". The list goes on and on. Veteran animator Ward Kimball created this series and is quite unique as it is the only new TV series produced by Disney during the 1970s apart from "The New Mickey Mouse Club". Shows took on a single theme such as sports or music and footage from old Disney cartoons and features were utilized to illustrate these themes.
