In 1961, Walt Disney moved his popular TV hour from ABC to NBC, specifically to revel in the creative and promotional possibilities in that network's Living Color broadcasting. In what has been called the single most important programming event in the establishment of color television, Walt premiered Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, the first weekly television show designed to showcase color, and featuring the only animated character Walt ever created for television, Ludwig Von Drake. This "colorful" presentation, including seldom-seen clips, rare photos, stills, advertising material and other collectibles, will explore the creation, marketing and behind the scenes details of Disney's Emmy- and Peabody-winning series, and its enormous impact on the public and industry acceptance of color television.
