Magical World of Disney 1988

The Magical World of Disney was the 1988-1990 incarnation of the long-running Disney anthology TV series. Shifting focus from the original series hosted by Walt Disney to a package of made for TV specials and movies, the new series was hosted by Michael Eisner, occasionally interacting with cast or characters from that night's program (including the Muppets).

In September 1990, the series moved to The Disney Channel, and became a Sunday night showcase for Disney films and specials. In Fall 1996, The Magical World of Disney became a nightly showcase for movies that would air on the channel, even some that were not made by Disney, including All Dogs Go to Heaven 2, The Secret of NIMH II: Timmy to the Rescue, Double, Double, Toil and Trouble, The First Snow of Winter, and The Pebble and the Penguin.
