WALT DISNEY'S WONDERFUL WORLD OF COLOR
1961 - 1962 SEASON NBC, SUNDAY, 7, 1-HOUR FORMAT
An Adventure in Color (and) Mathmagic Land
September 24, 1961
A new era in television begins for Walt Disney as he moves his show to NBC and begins broadcasting in color. To heighten the impact that color will portray in his shows, Walt discusses the early black-and-white days of the movies. The arrival of Technicolor, seen in clips from Flowers and Trees and Fantasia, allowed moviemakers to present their product in lifelike color.
The final portion of the program is a presentation of the 1959 theatrical release Donald in Mathmagic Land, which the intrepid duck finds himself in a strange land where mathematical formulas and odd creatures abound.
A new star joins the Disney family – Donald Duck’s uncle, Professor Ludwig Von Drake.
Directed by Hamilton S. Luske.
