Disney and ABC

In 1954, Walt Disney was selecting a major television network to air his first TV show entitled Walt Disney’s "Disneyland”!!
The network that Walt picked was ABC.  The Disneyland Show aired from 1954 to 1958!!
In 1955, The Mickey Mouse Club aired on ABC on October 3, 1955. Three to Four months after Disneyland Park in California opened!!!
Until the early 1960s, Walt wanted to air his shows in color, but ABC refused due to the prices of color broadcasting. So, Walt moved his colored shows to another network which was NBC!!!
Later in 1996, Michael Eisner, who was the CEO of Disney, purchased ABC and later owned America’s major sports cable channel, ESPN!!!!
