Mars and Beyond
#1
I know this is WAY off topic but with all the renewed interest caused by NASA's new Mars rover; Curiosity, I thought someone might find this interesting. Personally I had never seen this show from Walt Disney. It is long but actually educational in a broad Disneyland kind of way. Enjoy!

"Walt Disney began hosting his own television show for ABC in 1954 in an unusual contract: Disney provided ABC with a weekly hour-long television program in exchange for funding for the construction of Disneyland. As a result, the television show was also originally named Disneyland. The anthology series has since gone through a number of name changes over the years: Walt Disney Presents, Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, The Wonderful World of Disney, Disney's Wonderful World, Walt Disney, The Disney Sunday Movie, and The Magical World of Disney. The series spanned an incredible 54 years—13 seasons of which were hosted by Walt Disney, himself."

hyena429,

You're welcome. Glad someone liked it. Yes it stays with a campy style you normally expect from a Disney cartoon, but really offers some good historical references. Maybe it simply appeals to my 'inner child'. Heck I still laugh at Road Runner cartoons!
