  • show Description
  • 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.moreless

    • Shirley: How come my Oscar is smaller than everyone else's? Mrs. Temple: They made it special just for you. You made more movies than anyone else last year. Shirley: Then shouldn't my Oscar be the biggest one?

    • Shirley: (at age 16, after getting her first adult role all on her own) What's the matter, Mom? Mrs. Temple: You don't need us anymore. Shirley: I do need you. I need you to love me, just like you always have. I'm never going to stop needing that, Mom--not ever.

    Trivia (11)

    • When Woody is trapped under the crate with the toolbox over it, if you look closely when Buzz is trying to get the toolbox off the crate, you\'ll see the toolbox reads Binford. Tim Allen who voices Buzz Lightyear previously starred in the TV sitcom Home Inprovement where he worked for Binford Tools.

    • Ashley Rose Orr played Shirley from ages 4 to 12 in the film.

    • Shirley: People will still go to my movies, even if they didn't like this one, won't they? Mrs. Temple: Just because the critics didn't like it doesn't mean the audience won't. And you know it's never been about your movies. It's always been about you.

    • Daniel Stern, who played Marv in the first two films, was asked to reprise his role in this one, but quickly refused, calling it "an insult, total garbage."

    • Why the kids act as if this is the house they grew up in? In the last episode of the original series, the Seavers moved to Washington. The only one of the kids that should be emotionally attached is Chrissy, since she was only five when the series ended. Mike, Carol, and Ben were already grown by that time.

    • No, at the end of the last movie Carol got married and Ben is seen with a girlfriend, but nothing was said or done to insinuate that Ben and this girl got married.

    • How did smashing the door they threw Randall in keep him from escaping? It would just close that door, not the others...

    • This movie was made by Warner Bros., not Disney
