Trivia

While declining ratings were a factor in the decision, the show ended primarily because the studio felt it would be competing with the then-new Disney Channel on cable television. Today, the Disney Channel rarely shows old Disney movies or programs as they used to in the 1980s and 1990s. 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.
