The Wonderful World of Disney finally returned in September of 1997 - bringing an entirely new batch of Disney family films. In the traditions of the old classics, Disney is trying to recreate the feel good image. Hosted again by Michael Eisner, this series has featured everything from true life stories to revamped musicals - occasionally gaining ABC some of its highest ratings in recent years. The one flaw - it is not on every week - being preempted for sports, theatrical movies and even some non-Disney films, although some non-Disney movies are now starting to air under the T.W.W.O.D. banner. Many of the movies are simulcast in HDTV. With this series, Disney revamped its home movie industry and a lot of these titles became available for purchase on VHS and/or DVD. The series has been on the air since 1954. Disneyland is the original name of The Wonderful World Of Disney.
