    Hey there, folks.

    I'm just wondering, does one of you people remember the show called, "The Wonderful World of Disney"? I kinda remember this program a little bit. It's probably a special program that airs some old classic Disney movies and even live-action ones (can anyone help me confirm)?

    The one movie that I remember watching was probably "Fantasia". Others that I remember watching were, "Honey, I shrunk the kids" (or something like that) and "Honey, I blew up the kid". Rick Moranis is a very great guy in those movies.

    Anyway, there's one movie that I remember watching in the late 90s (probably between 1996 and 1997), I only watched the end part of it and I believe it's probably aired on "The Wonderful World of Disney". I can describe you the scene (that I can remember. I can't trace back any further).

    The scene was probably shot at a swimming pool (all the water were empty in that scene) and some two guys that are in the empty pool got hit by some golf balls that the girls are swinging at. These guys tried to run for cover but failed. If I remember, the girls simply laughed. In the next scene, we can see an angry woman saying something about the girls. After that, she got into her car and then the girls saying, "Goodbye, Mrs..." whatever her name is.

    I don't know what is the name of that movie that was aired on "The Wonderful World of Disney".

    Does one of you people remembering "The Wonderful World of Disney"? If so, please do not hesitate to talk about it. Thank you.

    They still air the wonderful world of disney. I see it on the digital cable guide all the time and you have to look at the description to find out what movie it is. This Sunday it will be on CBC playing inspector gadget.

    I remember that show. I used to watch it since I taped off of Disney Channel about 7 years ago when it was "Vault Disney", but now it's gone. I have most of the episodes from the Walt era and the post-Walt era. Loads of 2-part TV movies and others. Thanks to the DVD's. I also remember back in the late-80's and early 90's, the syndicated "Wonderful World of Disney" was on WNYW-TV (channel 5) in New York when it was on Sunday mornings and then moved to 4:00 PM as part of the "Fox 5 Kids Club" with DJ Kat (from the "DJ Kat Show") since it was off the air. Those are fond memories of watching the Disney anthology shows.

    I think on Saturdays they aired the block that included classics such as "Recess" and on Sunday evening was the Wonderful World of Disney movie.

    Speaking of those blocks, does anyone remember the commercials which featured the Saturday morning cartoon characters playing soccer? They both always came on ABC.

    Back in the 80s they had "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights around 7 or 8pm. They featured made-for-tv movies including:

    1) "The Last Electric Night" (with Ernie Reyes, Jr): a "Karate Kid"-like movie where this kid was really good in Karate pairs up with an American cop
    2) "The Girl who Spelled Freedom": about a Cambodian (?) girl who is adopted by an American family and learns about the freedoms of the US
    3) "Mr. Boogedy Man": cant' remember much, but similar to "Beetle Juice"
    4) "The Headless Horseman": a Holloween special

    Oh yeah, I remember these, especially "The Girl who Spelled Freedom". The family didn't know how to use a toilet and they would horde food. During the first rainstorm in America, they freaked out.

    I remembered watching The Princess Diaries (2001) on The Wonderful World of Disney way back in 2004.
