Disney Documentary Hour: Welcome to the "World" - 1975

By Keith Mahne

Welcome back to the popular Disney Documentary Hour here on Disney Avenue. Today's show is called Welcome to the "World" that originally aired in 1975! If you can make it through the full 54 minutes you'll come away tap dancing and searching your old boxes of clothes you been meaning to throw out for your favorite pair of polyester paints. This campy spectacular aired as an episode of The Wonderful World of Disney. Host Lucie Arnaz is joined by Lyle Waggoner and Tommy Tune as they introduce viewers to Walt Disney World's newest attraction, Space Mountain. Continue after the page break and be prepared to be time warped...

Although the film is corny as ever, I adore these old "song and dance" specials Disney would use to show off new attractions and I think you will too. The cast includes:
  • Lucie Arnaz as Herself
  • The Rhodes Kids as Themselves
  • Tommy Tune as Himself
  • Lyle Waggoner as Himself
  • Art Gilmore as Announcer

  • Here now from The Wonderful World of Disney is Welcome to the World that originally aired on March 23, 1975. Enjoy!
