By Request: The Disney Channel Magazine - May 1985 part 2

Here's part two! I hope it's bringing back some memories for all of you.
Have a great week, everyone!

These last two posts do bring back a lot of memories. I remember being alternately disappointed in the Disney Channel. Remember "DTV", their version of "MTV"? It drove me crazy, why didn't they just show some of their hundreds of classic cartoon shorts, don't cut 'em up and add pop music. Black and white cartoons were colorized! And the shows aimed at kids made sense, but I can't say I enjoyed them.

What I DID love was "Vault Disney", getting a chance to see some of those original "Disneyland" and "Wonderful World of Color" shows. And even the Mickey Mouse club! And of course some of the less-known Disney live action movies that I was glad I got a chance to see.

Hi Devyn,

I just came across your Sacred Tree of the Aracuan Bird blog.

I thought I'd drop you a line and let you know how much I enjoyed it.

I'm from - and run the website for - "Fantasies Come True" in Los Angeles. Have you heard of us? We opened the world's first Disney-only store back in 1980 and have been online now for since 2000. We only sell Disney so our stock covers just about everything - WDCC, pins, Olszewski miniatures, Nightmare Before Christmas keychains, magnets, PVC figures, Schmid, Salt & Pepper shakers, Evan K. Shaw, Pooh & Friends as well as hard-to-find vintage items.

I've added you to our LINKS page ( If you'd like to add us to your links page, that'd be great. But if not that's cool too.

Keep up the great work!

All the best,

I concur with you about DTV. It used to annoy me, and I was a kid, so it mustn't have hit home with everyone. I preferred the types of "fillers" with Eric Bordman, who gave you some insight or lesser known info about the parks and studio.
Vault Disney was wonderful, but it was only a sampling of what was always on the channel back in the day. It was like the bone Disney threw us after tampering with the channel. This is not to say I wouldn't chew on that bone again... but I'd like a complete overhaul to resemble the Disney Channel of the past.

Glama Tene,
Thanks so much for your compliments and for posting my blog on your site. I have done the same for yours. You have a lovely selection of everything Disney on your site! :)

Sure brought back memories for me. I only wish I had saved those magazines!
