Trivia

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 "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.

"One of these many worlds will open to you!"
5 December 2001 | by andy.marshallSee 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.
