The Wonderful World of Disney is a family anthology that aired on ABC for seven seasons, NBC for twenty seasons and CBS for two seasons.

Over the years, the show went by many names. The show was known as Disneyland for its first four seasons. From season five to season seven, the name was Walt Disney Presents. The show was moved to NBC for the eighth season so it could be broadcast in color. The name was changed to Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. Beginning with season sixteen, and continuing for twelve seasons, the name was The Wonderful World of Disney. The show was aired on CBS for its final two seasons and was renamed simply Walt Disney.
