Storyline

This is the very first episode of "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" after Walt Disney moved his anthology series from ABC to NBC in the fall of 1961. This show introduced a new character named Professor Ludwig Von Drake, who provides an interesting lowdown on color. The kaleidoscopic intro to the show, composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, further showed off color, which really impressed viewers who would comment on the greatness of it in color, to the obvious glee of one of the program's sponsors, RCA. Then the show culminates in a TV release of "Donald In Mathmagicland", the very first in all of Disney's stable of cartoon shorts to be aired on TV in color. Written by Anonymous

[Walt sees three paint lab girls in black and white, despite the fact that the show is in color]
Walt Disney: Girls, just a moment! Haven't you got the word? We're in full color. Oh, well, a bit of color magic will fix it. Bibbidi-bobbidi-blue!
[the first girl turns red, the second green and the third blue]
Walt Disney: Whoops. I must've said the wrong words. Let's see. Ah, I know. NBC! Color TV!
[the girls all turned into their colored forms]
Walt Disney: Well, that's more like it.
