Today Is Tuesday. You Know What That Means
Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a Special Guest!
So put on your ears,
Like good Mouseketeers,
Cause Tuesday is Guest Star Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is probably hard for our kids to imagine that when we were kids (well most of us) that there were only 3 or 4 tv stations. Amazing that we managed to live through it, eh?
There were no 24 hr a day cartoon or children's stations. We had Saturday mornings, occasional after school specials and of course, Sunday Nights. EVERYONE watched tv on Sunday nights. We didn't want to miss The Wonderful World of Disney!
After doing a bit of research on it, I just found out that it actually first ran on Wednesday nights. It premiered Wednesday, October 27th, 1954 on ABC, under the name of Disneyland. It finally bid farewell, and on Christmas Eve 2008, it ran it's final episode. It still holds the 2nd place record for longest running prime time television show. Second only to Hallmark Hall of Fame.
And just think, without Walt Disney there would be NO Tuesday Guest Star Days. Now THAT'S a sobering thought!!
There were more than one opening segments but I'm going to play my favorite now....cause Tuesday is Guest Star Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
