    Good to know where these older classic Disney movies are moving to.

    For several year, the Hallmark Channel would show some of the older movies, in at least the past couple of years BYU has been showing the older movies.

    With the TCM deal, looks like we will also get to see some of the older cartoons, too!

    With Disney, older or newer has never mattered much. Since Walt's classic cartoons, films and TV shows are timeless in nature, they really could be marketed to anyone at any time in any era (and always have been until recent years, as Walt's animated features still are).

    What matters most now is that Walt Disney's own films continue to be shown to the general public. At least on TCM, Walt's work will be properly positioned alongside that of populist Hollywood in general, perhaps restoring some of the lost lustre and context to his reputation as a groundbreaking filmmaker/producer/showman -- and his development of the art of animation can be viewed as entertainment, not just as a footnote in film history books.

    If they show it, the people will find it.

    Would love to see Third Man On the Mountain. And looking forward to hearing Robert Osborn's intros for each film.

    They did something like this a few years ago, but it was all live action films. I DVR's a lot of those and saw a bunch of stuff I'd never seen before like Shaggy Dog, Love Bug, Apple Dumpling Gang, Parent Trap, some Kurt Russell stuff. It was pretty fun.
