DTV

D-TV was a series of music videos created by Walt Disney Productions in 1984 using popular music and footage of vintage Disney animation, created out of the trend of music videos on cable channel MTV, which inspired the name of this series. The videos were shown as filler material on Disney Channel and/or Family Channel (as the network did not air commercials, sometimes in Canada its commercial break for Family Channel at this time), as well as being the focus of televisions specials. Home video collections were also released on the VHS, Beta, CED Videodisc, and Laserdisc formats. After the first run of D-TV, in 1989 a second series was produced known as DTV².

D-TV ceased airing in 1999. A small selection of the music videos can currently be viewed on YouTube.

As of 2009, Disney seems to be reviving the D-TV idea in the form of Re-Micks, similar music videos syncing clips from the classic shorts to pop songs.

Television Specials

Disney had aired three D-TV television specials on NBC in 1986 and 1987: DTV Valentine, DTV Doggone Valentine, and DTV Monster Hits. All three specials had its own theme of music: D-TV Valentine focused on love and romance music; D-TV Doggone Valentine focused on love songs with a tribute to Disney's dog and cat characters; and D-TV Monster Hits was focused on Halloween themed music and footage.
