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 cancelled it. CBS then picked it up and featured an even more elaborate opening sequence using then-state-of-the art computer graphics. Disney cancelled 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 cancelled in 1990 after thirty-six consecutive seasons on network television. In 1997, the show was revived by ABC as The Wonderful World of Disney (1995). See more »

Still Fun To Watch
8 November 2002 | by StreepFan126See all my reviews

This is on the Disney Channel frequently, and I find myself still being amuzed by it. I think it's because Walt Disney himself was the host. Walt Disney always seems like he could have been a relative to some people. He always feels like family. Plus, some of the programs are still very interesting. There are several programs about the soon to open theme park, as well as many features about the making of some of the movies.
