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 »

Saga of Andy Burnett
9 July 2007 | by mburke6767See all my reviews

I would really appreciate someone who had duplicated this six part series (Saga of Andy Burnett) to let me purchase either VHS or DVD's . I loved this series as a kid in the '50's and since Valt Disney is closed down It looks like I won't be able to get the episodes for my self. Our cable CO did not offer the Disney channel until 2004 and by then they had stopped showing Andy. I did catch Zorro and Davy Crockett but Andy Burnett was always #1 with me. Thanks for your time, hope you can help? Mike Burke mburke6767@aol.com BTW I live in South Florida and am an accomplished inshore fisherman if you are able to help me get coppies of the Saga of Andy Burnett I will be forever indebted to you and if you're in my area I will take you fishing to help pay for your effort on my behalf.
