Teachers loved to project this film for their classes, as it was so far above the host of now decently buried educational films of the time. This DVD opens with a montage trailer of scenes from the "Wonderful World of Disney" releases, which have the characteristic look of the four color Technicolor of the '60s, and that places this film in its rightful millieu. In his biography, former NBC head, Pat Weaver recalls that Disney offered NBC its film and TV catalog in the mid- '50s if NBC would buy a fourth of the then fledgling Disneyland Park. David Sarnoff, president of RCA, which owned NBC, flatly refused. The Disneyland TV show therefore continued on ABC, with a title change in the 1959 season to "Walt Disney Presents". Due to the runaway success of Davey Crockett, however, ABC wanted Walt to keep cranking out westerns, so in 1961, the program moved to NBC, with a new name many viewers remember, "The Wonderful World of Color".
"General" Sarnoff had made clear that RCA's one goal was to sell color TV sets, since most homes still had black and white, and "Donald Duck in Mathmagic Land" aired on its new network as part of an hour show hosted by a new character, Ludwig Von Drake, called "An Adventure in Color".Read more ›
Contrary to expectation this is NOT a simple animation about arithmetic. It's more ambitious and might actually be best viewed by junior high students who are wondering what advanced math is good for.
