Walt-Era fans rejoice! The Disney Movie Rewards website is showing the January 28, 1965 episode of The Wonderful World of Color, A Country Coyote Goes Hollywood, as the next upcoming Disney Movie Club Exclusive. Narrated by Rex Allen, it tells the story of a coyote who is accidentally transported from his home to the Hollywood Hills and must learn to adapt to his new surroundings.
Look for A Country Coyote Goes Hollywood to be released later this month.
Just as we get close to Halloween, many of our members will remember “Child of Glass”.
I’m not one of them.
Film historian Leonard Maltin (the host of the Disney Treasures DVD line) recently answered a question on YouTube about the possibility of Spin and Marty: Season Two getting a DVD release, and then went into explanation/discussion for all unreleased classic Disney titles yet to be released on DVD. As much as we wish it were not the case, Mr. Maltin’s feelings on the subject are not too hopeful. As Mr. Maltin points out, Disney seems more interested in moving away from physical formats (i.e. DVD and Blu-Ray) and moving to just digital formats.
This past week, the newest Disney Movie Club Exclusive on DVD, Escapade in Florence, has been released. It was unknown at the time, but now we know that this film was released by itself, so Annette Funicello’s The Horsemasters is still in need of a DVD release. Look for a review on this release from us in the near future.
You can pick it up from the Disney Movie Club or pick it up HERE on Disney Movie Club’s Official eBay Store!
We are very excited to note that due to fan support and the great sale Amazon.com has been holding, nine of the top twenty best-selling titles sold in the Kids & Family DVD section on Amazon.com are Disney Afternoon titles, with the top three all belonging to DuckTales!
From now till September 21, 2013, Amazon.com is holding a big sale on (almost) all retail Disney Afternoon DVD’s. Also included in the sale is the 1990′s Jim Henson show Dinosaurs. If you have not picked any of these titles up yet, this would be a great time to do so. If you have, with the Holidays just a few months away, these would make great gifts for adult friends or family members who grew up in the 80′s or 90′s or for children who have not yet been exposed to these timeless classics. Make sure to hurry however, as the sale ends soon!
