Trivia

Walt Disney's ideal vision of telecasting this program in widescreen and stereophonic sound is now an everyday reality thanks to HDTV. Unfortunately, he did not live to see it. See more »

Alternate Versions

The "stereophonic" version of this episode begins with _Walt Disney_ recalling different firsts in Disney history, then proclaiming that this marks the first TV broadcast with widescreen clips and stereophonic audio. He proceeds to instruct the viewers on how to set up their radios to enjoy the broadcast. Viewers who could only watch this episode in mono audio saw an introduction with Walt skipping over these instructions. See more »
