Disney's D-TV Monster Hits (1987 Halloween Special)

By Keith Mahne




With Halloween right around the corner, let's get into the spirit of the season with this classic Disney Special called D-TV Monster Hits from 1987. D-TV was a series of music videos created by Walt Disney Productions in 1984. Disney combined hit songs from the past with footage of vintage Disney animation, created in the style of MTV music videos, which inspired the name of the series. The videos were shown as filler material on the Disney Channel (as the network did not air commercials at this time), as well as being the focus of television specials like this one. Join us in today's new article as we watch Disney's D-TV Monster Hits Halloween Special that originally aired on October 30, 1987 on NBC...








Did you know?

Voice actress June Foray recorded new lines for the character Hazel the Witch for this TV special nearly 35 years after she first recorded Hazel's voice for the 1952 Disney animated short, Trick or Treat (1952). Foray also did the voice of Hazel the Witch as a Looney Tunes character who menaced Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.
