Walt Disney began hosting his own television show for ABC in 1954 in an unusual contract: Disney provided ABC with a weekly hour-long television program in exchange for funding for the construction of Disneyland. As a result, the television show was also originally named Disneyland. The anthology series has since gone through a number of name changes over the years: Walt Disney Presents, Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, The Wonderful World of Disney, Disney's Wonderful World, Walt Disney, The Disney Sunday Movie, and The Magical World of Disney. The series spanned an incredible 54 years—13 seasons of which were hosted by Walt Disney, himself.

Art Video from the '50s
I found this really interesting in terms of how the styles of each artist are so different and all taken seriously. Back then in a time where few representational artists were taken seriously animators and illustrators were probably among the few who kept up the practice of skill and representation in art during the height of the modern art movement. Also interesting how all the different styles change together with time.
