This was one of the few shows my whole family gathered to watch. We watched it before and after Walt passed. I remember how excited I was to see the show when we got our first color television because it had been renamed to "The Wonderful World of Color". It was so amazing to us back then!

Then I think we would watch shows like "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", "The FBI" and "The Ed Sullivan Show" after the Disney show was over.

Good times.

I'll be "dating myself" here, but I remember watching the VERY first Walt Disney TV shows. I'll edit this by saying I don't really remember the very first show (which was about Disneyland) but I sure do recall the second show, which was Alice in Wonderland. After that I was glued to the TV to watch the Disney show for the many years that it ran. And always got excited when the show was about "Frontierland"!!
This was in 1954---how long ago was THAT???!!!

I remember watching Disney and then suffering through Bonanza. My parents would get out the popcorn pans for Bonanza so if I wanted popcorn I had to watch. Thoes were the days of good pan popped corn and only 1 tv per family.

That brings back wonderful childhood memories. Just hated that we had to watch the movies over a 2 week period.
Here in Canada now, many Disney classics are being played on Sunday evenings 5:00PM to 7:00PM on CBC. (then bedtime for my youngest pair, just like the old days)

I think this generation is missing out on all the classic Disney stuff. They're going to grow up on the '00's version of Disney and remember HSM and Mylie Cyrus more than Walt Disney and the history of it all.

Sadly, you are right--but I suppose the only consolation is that they will have no idea exactly WHAT they are missing. They won't know any better.

Just look at One Mans Dream in the Studios. One day we went in (and it's always a regular stop for us) and we were the ONLY TWO people in the theater for the movie.

I'm only eighteen, but I do remember watching the Wonderful World of Disney on ABC on Sunday evenings when I was a kid. I think they revived it in the '90s for a while.

I don't remember who did the introductions, but I do remember that they existed. We would watch movies like Annie, the live version of Pinocchio...Tinkerbell came across at the beginning, and there were fireworks...we did that every Sunday night. Highlight of my week--movie night with the family.

I used to watch it, but I'll be dipped if I can remember what was on it! Was it like Daniel Boone or cartoons or what? All I know was, it was the highlight of TV viewing. We never sat on the furniture to watch either - always sitting or laying on the floor with pillows!

IIRC, it was a mixture. Sometimes they'd have cartoons like D Duck or adventure like Daniel Boone or Swamp Fox.

Yeah, I go back that far too! (creak, creak).

I still get chills when I watch an old show and Tink appears,
and the announcer says: "Walt Disney's DISNEYLAND!"

Saw this posting and it brought back so many wonderful memories of Sunday nights. I figured youtube probably has a video of the intro and I think I found it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4UBhDxG3yc&NR=1

I had one of those deja vu moments. Its the guy's voice that says the wonderful world of disney that really brought it all home to me.

Thanks for the dates. If you don't have it, snag a copy of THE
WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISNEY TELEVISION by Bill Cotter.
Short description in there of each and every episode of all the shows!

Certainly!
As I read it I could visualize all the actual shows that I watched in "real time".
Good stuff in there also about the Mousketeers and the early (when it was good) Disney Channel as well.
