Walt Disney Home Entertainment: Release the rest of The Walt Disney Anthology Mini-Series on DVD

    1. Petition by

      Open Vault Disney

Starting in the 1950’s, Walt Disney personally hosted an anthology show that showcased the amazing talents of the people at the Disney Studios.  Originally known as “Disneyland,” this show would go thru a few different titles, including “Walt Disney Presents,” “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color,” and maybe the most famous title, “The Wonderful World of Disney.”  During the time that Walt Disney produced the show, a number of popular mini-series were aired that would go on to be important parts of the Disney cannon, end up airing all over the world, re-run on the Disney Channel, and find a large base of fans for the Disney brand name.

After years of being out of print from a few select VHS releases, Disney released some or parts of these shows as part of the now discontinued, but very popular, “Walt Disney Treasures Collection.”  Since the few releases released, Disney fans and tv history collectors have been clamoring for the rest of the episodes and titles not yet released.  Among the titles desired include, but are not limited to:

-The Saga of Andy Burnett (1957-1958)

-The Nine Lives of Elfego Baca (1958-1960) - Final unreleased 7 episodes

-The Tales of Texas John Slaughter (1958-1961)

-The Swamp Fox (1959-1961) - Final 5 episodes

-The Ludwig von Drake staring episodes (1961-1967) - All 18 episodes

-The Horsemasters (1961)

-The Prince and the Pauper (1962)

-Gallagher (1965-1968)

-Mosby’s Marauders (1967)

We, as a collective body of fans, urge Walt Disney Home Entertainment to finally release the unreleased episodes of these treasured classics onto DVD. Let us enjoy these final unreleased episodes, whether through the more preferred method of a standard retail DVD release(s), or simply via the growing DVD-on-Demand program. We feel the excuses for denying fans access to the ends of these shows must come to an end.

If Walt Disney Home Entertainment properly markets and advertises such releases, we know they will do well. There is a strong fan base for all of these shows and we are ready to demonstrate with our pocket books how beloved they still are, if we are given the opportunity. Thank you. _____________________________________________

      There are so many classics that Mr. Disney gave us when we were younger. It would be nice for my little ones generations could also enjoy them like my family enjoyed them when were younger. I hate to say it but the stuff that comes from Disney now is far from what Mr. Disney imagined that his company has turned into, Please dig into the vaults and release it. If you don't mind me saying it that's Mr. Disney would want. Thanks for you time.

      I still remember the theme songs and the characters. Loved many of these programs. We'd talk about them at school the day after they aired.
