Retroist Wonderful World of Disney Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Wonderful World of Disney Podcast. On today’s show I talk all about The Wonderful World of Disney and the shows that preceeded and proceeded it. Disney is a big subject on the web, with lots of experts. I try to give an overview of the Disney Network TV experience. If you are a fan though, I suggest you hunt down some of the high quality dedicated Disney podcasts out there.

I am joined this week by Vic Sage with a new “Why Should I Know this Person?”, Doug McCoy with a new “Also Ran” and Rob O’Hara with a new segment called Talking Tech. Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Dick Van Dyke of Wales).

    You really have me jonsin’ to watch some episodes of this and share it with my kids. Where the heck can I find digital episodes to rent? Sad, there are no more video rental stores.
    At least some episodes are on YouTube, but the quality is crap.

    Yeah YouTube and other online sources seem to be the place to go nowadays. It is a real shame, Disney seems to be always holding back goldmines worth of entertainment.

    It isn’t just Disney holding back the floodgates, but I don’t want to get on a rant about media companies outdated policies regarding their content.
    Since it’s a three day weekend, i’llhave to sit everyone down one night and play an episode. It’s a good way to get psyched for our WDW trip in a few weeks. Any recommendations for episodes to seek out? I did try the first world of color episode but that did not seem to grab their attention.

    Great show, Team Retroist!

    The world of Disney is where I rooted myself as a small human, wishing I could grow into a tall cartoon character, but settled on being a goofy guy instead.

    It goes to show how essential the values and sense of wonderment Uncle Walt’s dream-come-true was to anyone who glimpsed at it that the networks opened their door to host the production of this marvelous hour of entertainment.

    Always been a fan of Disney and totally unsurprised that, despite hardships on the business/management end, the name lives on, nourished by the talented people (mostly Pixarians) who grew up to admire and share the dreams.

    If the show still played, with that same innocent, informative, playful and colorful exploration of humanity through kid’s eyes, I’d still be watching it ’til forever.

    And by the way, the Disney Treasures DVDs are a great way to enjoy some of the WWofD spirit, with lots of Walt Disney himself, lots of Leonard Maltin appreciations and extras.
    But it’s true, having the complete series available (intros, sparkly credits and all) would be much much better.
