24 - 1A- The Wonderful World of Disney - Title Themes -

As the novelty of color TV began to wain, the 1969 season of the Disney anthology series underwent yet another name change, becoming "The Wonderful World of Disney," which is perhaps the most recognizable name associated with this series over its many incarnations. The new theme music for the revamped series was an upbeat medley of Disney standards, which every few seasons was re-recorded with slight changes. The title music for the 1978-1979 season would be the last time such a medley arrangement would be used, and was also the last season the series would officially be called "The Wonderful World of Disney." In 1979, at the insistence of NBC executives, the name of the show was shortened to "Disney's Wonderful World, and a new and more contemporary sounding title theme was composed, forgoing the tradition of opening the show with a Walt Disney medley. In 1981, NBC cancelled the series, but it was quickly picked up by CBS, then becoming known simply as..."Walt Disney." The new opening title featured the more traditional Disney anthem "When You Wish Upon a Star," which was visually accompanied by an impressive display of early computer generated graphics. After its short run on CBS, the long running series would be cancelled after the 1982-1983 season, but this again would not mark the end of Disney on prime time network TV. In 1986 Disney returned to the airwaves after a three year hiatus. The new ABC series was known as "The Disney Sunday Movie," and the main title was again, "When You Wish Upon a Star." This version started out in a wistful and more  traditional Disney style, before the tempo would pick up with some decidedly 1980's pop influences. Also in the 80's, Disney opened up its vaults, releasing several classic films and TV episodes into a daily syndicated format, once again under the name, "The Wonderful World of Disney." Then in 1988, Disney's primetime anthology series moved back to NBC, this time forgoing the wonder and adding a little magic under the slightly different title "The Magical World of Disney."

24 - 10A- From Pirates of the Caribbean to Tomorrowland -

After several major new Disneyland attractions premiered in 1967, the following year a special episode of Disney's weekly program brought audiences on a tour of these exciting additions. Marcia Miner, the 1967 Disneyland ambassador, had the daunting task of filling Walt Disney's shoes as the first person ever to present Disneyland to a television audience after the master showman's untimely passing. After an extensive behind-the-scenes tour of the WED Imagineering production studio, focusing on the design and creation of these new attractions, audiences then witnessed the special press premiere grand opening ceremonies of Pirates of the Caribbean followed up by a virtual ride-through of the entire 'E' ticket adventure. They then experienced the innovative new Wedway PeopleMover as it took them on a complete tour of a newly remodeled Tomorrowland. Following this, the episode came to its culmination with a musical montage showcasing the many entertainment offerings that could be found throughout Disneyland after dark, including a swinging dance party "A-Go-Go" at the new Tomorrowland Terrace bandstand.

24 - 14A- Disneyland Showtime -

After the Haunted Mansion premiered in 1969, a special episode of the weekly Disney television program was presented the following year, taking audiences on a musical journey through Disneyland with the Osmond Brothers, teen hearttrob Kurt Russell and musical comedienne E.J. Peaker. As this group of young performers made their way down Main Street, they climbed atop a double-decker Omnibus and broke out into an upbeat rendition of the hit song,"Down on the Corner." Later in Frontierland, E.J. Peaker performed the Broadway number, "Walking Happy," aboard the Mark Twain, as it steamed around the Rivers of America. The Kids of the Kingdom also made a guest appearance, singing one of their signature numbers, "This Land is Your Land," as they appeared in a montage enjoying many attractions in Disneyland. Later at the Plaza Gardens, Kurt Russell joined Disneyland's own contemporary rock group, The Sound Castle, for their cover version of the pop hit "Candy Girl."  This was later followed by a performance by E.J. Peaker and the Osmonds at the Tomorrowland stage in a live concert. In the final segment of the program, audiences were given a behind the scenes look at the making of the all-new Haunted Mansion, culminating in a sneak peak of the completed 'E" ticket adventure as Kurt, E.J. and the Osmonds toured the happy haunting grounds.

24 - 21A- Sandy in Disneyland -

The bright, bubbly and amazingly talented Miss Sandy Duncan hosted a prime time TV special in 1974 called "Sandy in Disneyland." This musical variety show also  featured guest stars Ernest Borgnine, Ruth Buzzi, John Davidson, Lorne Greene, The Jackson Five, Ted Knight, Kenny Loggins, Jim Messina and Doc Severinsen. The opening number featured Sandy and a growing assemblage of characters singing, "No Two People Have Ever Been So In Love," with the number of Disney friends multiplying quickly from two, to four, to twelve and so on. Then Sandy performed the Disney classic, "Hi Diddle Dee Dee" throughout the park, in varying costumes and musical styles, from ballet to bluegrass. The Jackson Five, with a young Michael Jackson, then performed one of their chart-topping hits aboard the Sailing Ship Columbia, leading off with a song from the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, "H.M.S. Pinafore." Sandy was then joined by comedian Ruth Buzzi to perform the Disney tune, "Fortuosity," while portraying a pair of inept house burglars who encountered some unexpected surprises when trying to rob the Haunted Mansion. Then Sandy was joined by John Davidson for a impromtu photo shoot and musical duet, followed by a fire engine ride down Main Street to the tune of the Capenter's hit song, "Top of the World." Then Sandy was shanghaied by a swashbuckling Ernest Bourgnine, who lamented on his desire to leave the life of a pirate and become a performer. Later, legendary "Tonight Show" band leader, Doc Severinsen, performed trumpet for Sandy as she danced her way throughout New Orleans Square. Next, Lorne Greene and Sandy took, "An Old Fashioned Walk," amongst the giant dinosaurs of the Primeval World, culminating in Sandy being hit over the head with a giant club, and dragged off by a caveman. The show concluded with the song, "He Touched Me," as Sandy took an evening carriage ride down Main Street with Mickey Mouse, followed by a fireworks finale.

24 - 31A- Christmas in Disneyland -

For the 1976 holiday season, a high production Christmas TV special was filmed on location in Disneyland, with stars Art Carney, Sandy Duncan and Glen Campbell, each playing a duel role. Art Carney played both a miserly grandfather and a jolly magician named Dr. Wunderbar. Sandy Duncan played a Disneyland tour guide and Snow White. Glen Campbell played a Disneyland cast member and Santa Claus. The show began as the Disney characters and the Kids of the Kingdom prepared the park for the holiday season as an unimpressed Gramps, with his two grand kids in tow, were preparing to leave. His plan was quickly thwarted by tour guide Sandy Duncan, who devised a plan to prevent him from leaving. She took the three guests to the underground laboratory of Dr. Wunderbar who offered Gramps a cash reward if he could resist being transformed from an unbeliever into a believer by midnight. Sandy then made the first attempt to warm his heart by showing him her miniature world, using green screen technology placing a miniaturized Sandy within the backdrop of It's a Small World. Then Glen Campbell invited Gramps to a down home hoedown in Bear Country with Big Al and the stars of the Country Bear Jamboree. The three visitors then encountered a depressed Santa, concerned with the lack of production in his toy making elves. The children recommended that Snow White offer the assistance of her Seven Dwarfs to add their numbers and speed up the assembly line. As night falls, Gramps and the kids pause for a moment in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle to reflect on what it would like to be older and younger, followed by a story by Gramps about Christmas Eve in the castle, shown as a dream sequence featuring the Disney characters and the Big Bad Wolf disguised as Santa Claus. Gramps was then challenged to "hear" the unbelievable as Glen Campbell showed him the singing geese and other animals of America Sings in a comical Christmas medley. As a final test, Gramps was then asked to make a wish, and if it could be made into a reality, then he must admit to being a believer. He wished for a snowfall on Main Street, and magically, Disneyland was turned into a frosted winter wonderland with real live snow! This iconic moment in Disneyland history was topped off with a romantic ice skating routine between Mickey and  Minnie, a scene that is well remembered by many all these years later. The show concluded with highlights from the Candlelight Processional, and finally Gramps was transformed into a true believer.

24 - 42A- Kraft Salutes Disneyland's 25th Anniversary -

In honor of Disneyland's 25th anniversary, a prime-time TV special was presented by Kraft Foods. The show was hosted by Hollywood comedic legend Danny Kaye, and for the opening of the program, he composed and performed a musical tribute to Disneyland, and its first quarter century, from where it all began in Anaheim, California. The program also featured special appearances by a whole array of celebrity guests, including the Osmond Brothers who performed a medley of several of their top hits at the banks of the Rivers of America while reminiscing about their early years in Disneyland. Also appearing was a young Michael Jackson, at the very advent of his solo career, singing a medley of "When You Wish Upon a Star," and "Ease on Down the Road,"  from his recent motion picture, "The Wiz." The show's climactic finish was presented as a series of musical vignettes contained within a fantasy dream sequence. These all occurred after the young star of the popular TV series "Eight is Enough," Adam Rich, encountered a magic witch portrayed again by Danny Kaye. The comical hag presented Adam with the very rare and seldom, if  ever, mentioned 'F' Ticket, affording him some of the most spectacular Disneyland adventures imaginable.

24 - 51A- Disneyland's 30th Anniversary Celebration -

To commemorate its milestone three decades of bringing magic to millions of guests, Disneyland was again showcased on prime-time TV through a star-studded special filled with comedy, music and dance. The show was co-hosted by then ten year old Drew Barrymore and star of the Dynasty TV series John Forsythe. Other celebrity guests included Annette Funicello, Julie Andrews, the Pointer Sisters, Jullian Lennon, David Hasselhoff, Donna Summer, Harry Anderson, Roy Clark, Marie Osmond, Debbie Allen and Peter Allen. The program kicked off with the hit song, "I'm So Excited," performed by many of the audio-animatronic stars of Disneyland's popular attractions. This was followed up by a preview of the 30th Anniversary Parade which also introduced the evening's many performing guest stars. A musical highlight of the show was a production number staged on Main Street with Marie Osmond. In early 20th century attire she performed a medley of "I'm Walkin' Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA," and Irving Berlin's,"I Love a Piano." Legendary choreographer Debbie Allen also appeared in several production numbers, dancing in various styles and themed costumes to the rhythm of "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah."  The show's over-the-top big finish was a musical extravaganza starring the USC Trojan Marching Band and Peter Allen posing as the lead major, asking the musical question... "Is There a Band Big Enough?" We are answered in the affirmative as hundreds of band members gather from points all over the park to a celebration on Main Street, just in time for the lighting of the birthday candles and a spectacular fireworks display.

24 - 65A- Disneyland's 35th Anniversary Celebration -

In 1990, a special episode of "The Magical World of Disney" celebrated Disneyland's 35th anniversary. Less reliant on live musical entertainment than past anniversary specials, much of this program consisted of clever comedy sketches involving familiar comedians from both television and movies. The program was hosted by Tony Danza, and also starred the cast of the NBC sitcom "Cheers," the voice of Roger Rabbit: Charles Fleischer, comedian Jim Varney from the "Ernest" movie series, and a special appearance by Jim Henson's Muppets. Also featured was a look back at scenes from the Disneyland rededication ceremony, held earlier that year, and presided over by former president Ronald Reagan in what was one of his last public appearances. The show opened with a tour of the Haunted Mansion, with Woody the bartender from "Cheer's," who recalled his first trip to Disneyland as a young boy. Later, Charles Fleischer, portraying a Jungle Cruise skipper, took Tony Danza on a harrowing trip around the Adventureland riverways, which seemed just a little too real for Tony, as he narrowly escaped his own demise. Later, Miss Piggy of the Muppets made a special guest appearance, recounting her first visit to Disneyland and a futile attempt to take over as Cinderella. We then joined Ernest P. Worrell for some Disneyland home movies, followed by one of the very earliest televised musical performances by Will Smith, a.k.a. the Fresh Prince, and  D.J. Jazzy Jeff, rapping out to their own version of the Disney classic, "Supercalifragilistexpialidocious." To date, this program is the very last of the prime time, big budget, Disneyland centered TV specials, produced for and broadcasted on network TV.

24 - 71AAnd Now... Another Word from Our Sponsors -

Throughout the 80's and 90's, Disneyland often promoted itself though television ads. These commercials often tied into the latest attraction offerings, limited time events and special prize give-aways, but equally as effective were ads that simply showcased the general nostalgia of Disneyland, and its special appeal to families over several generations. One of the most popular commercial campaigns of the 80's was a series of ads where famous sports figures, upon their victory in a championship game, would be asked on the scene, "What are you going to do next?" to which they would enthusiastically shout out... "I'm Going to Disneyland!"  This began with Magic Johnson, when the LA Lakers won the basketball championships in 1987, and continued on for several years at nearly every NBA championship, Super Bowl, and World Series championship game thereafter. The slogan "I'm Going to Disneyland!" soon caught on with the public, and became a popular catch phrase of the time. In 1991, a commercial jingle was even written using this same slogan, showcasing Disneyland as the ideal place for families to have their own celebrations.

24 - 83A- Disneyland Home Entertainment -

Before the VCR became a common household device, Kodak offered professionally produced Super 8 reel-to-reel films, as a take home souvenir, available for purchase throughout Disneyland. When home video replaced home movies in the early 1980's, a new souvenir video was produced called, "A Day at Disneyland," which was also widely available for home rental in video stores nationwide. The video reused film footage from an earlier Super 8 release produced a few years earlier, and additional scenes filmed on video were added to the presentation. In 1991, a new and completely updated Day at Disneyland home video was produced for purchase exclusively in the park. It was then revised in 1993 to include additional scenes from Fantasmic and Mickey's Toontown. Another favorite 1990's video featuring Disneyland was called "Disneyland Fun." This was part of a series of home releases called, "Disney's Sing-Along Songs," with follow the bouncing ball style musical segments. This fondly remembered video featured newly produced recordings of many memorable songs associated with the park, as well as a few obscure gems.
