Presenter: Jim Fanning
Disney Historian and Author
Join Jim as he takes us on an exploration of Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color and how Walt (with a little help from Ludwig Von Drake) was at the forefront of the color television revolution.
In 1961 Walt transformed his hit television series into Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color, the first weekly TV program designed to showcase color. Enjoy a “colorful” celebration of this classic Emmy- and Peabody-winning TV series—featuring the only animated character Walt ever created for television, fan-favorite Ludwig Von Drake—as Disney writer and historian Jim Fanning shares a kaleidoscope of rare footage, seldom-seen stills and some “kooky” (as Ludwig might say) surprises.
Museum doors open at 5:45pm. Presentation starts at 6:00pm in the Sharon Disney Lund Education Center. Meet-and-greet with Jim to follow in the Marceline Gallery.
