    You mean the Tweeny-Bopper channel. My teen (14) won't touch the Disney Channel with the 10 foot pool. But my 12yo loves it.

    I get a kick out of the footage on the Disneyland treasures DVD. I like the way it seems so formal, and yet so chaotic at the same time. I watch Walt during the entire thing and it always seems to me that he is soooo stressed, I'm surprised he made it out alive that day. He looks nervous during his speech, he looks frustrated when he isn't given a cue for Tomorrowland, and he just really doesn't seem to be having a good time.

    I really like the way Reagan and Linkletter seem to have a grasp on what their doing, but Bob Cummings doesn't really seem to know what's going on. It's really incredible to watch this and see how hard ABC and Disney were trying. It kinda seems like the very first reality TV!
    In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate.

    Bob Cummings was the Ryan Seacrest of 1955!

    Just because it's gone doesn't mean I changed my mind!

    Heheh, just happened to watch this today, and yeah - Bob Cummings is embarrassingly clueless.
