"An Adventure in Color/Mathmagicland" was the first color episode of Disney's long-running anthology series to air in color, premiering on September 24, 1961, following the series' move from ABC to NBC. This show introduced a new character, Ludwig Von Drake, who provides an interesting lowdown on color (at one point performing "The Green with Envy Blues" and "The Spectrum Song", all about different colors). The kaleidoscopic intro to the show, composed by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. The second part of the show is the 1959 featurette Donald in Mathmagic Land.
The episode was partially created to help promote color televisions.
