Walt Disney Productions (later The Walt Disney Company) has produced an
anthology television series under several different titles since 1954.

The original version of the series premiered on ABC on Wednesday, October
27, 1954. The show was broadcast weekly on one of the Big Three television
networks
until 1990, a 36-year span with only a two-year hiatus from 1984 until
1985. The series was broadcast on Sunday for 25 of those years. From 1991
until 1997, the series aired infrequently and had only two hosts, Walt Disney
and Disney Chairman Michael Eisner. It is the second longest running prime-
time program
on American television, behind rival film anthology, the Hallmark
Hall of Fame
.
