So, as the title suggests, these are things (TV movies or miniseries) that originally aired (as far as I know) on the anthology series The Wonderful World of Disney. If you check the link for my review of that series, you'll see many of these things listed on that page, as well as lots of things that aren't listed here. Some things I don't list on this page because it's not for theatrical movies or specials, and some just because my interest in them is minimal. This is just for the things I'm particularly interested in seeing someday, but it doesn't mean I have no interest in seeing the things I don't list here. And in fact, there are some things I don't list here that I am particularly interested in, but... the other page already has links to pages specifically for those movies, even if I don't happen to remember them well enough to say much about them. So it just seems kind of redundant to list them here. (It should also be noted, if you're not already sick of me noting things, that both pages may omit some things I've forgotten about and haven't found listed online, possibly because there's some confusion as to whether they're actually installments of the series or not.)


Annie, on ABC
Amazon; Disney+; Disney Movies; Disney Wiki; IMDb; Made for TV Movie Wiki; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I most likely was aware of this when it first aired in 1999, but I don't think I was all that interested in seeing it, because I wanted to see the 1982 theatrical version first. Which I eventually did, but I still have no idea when I might get to see this version.


Geppetto, on ABC
Disney Movies; Disney Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This aired in 2000. I don't think I ever saw it, but I definitely remember wanting to.


Nancy Drew, on ABC
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango

I don't recall being aware of this when it aired in 2002, but looking at a list of things that aired on the series, this sounds interesting because it stars Maggie Lawson. So it might be fun to see this, sometime.


Princess of Thieves, on ABC
Disney Movies; Disney Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I know I was aware of this when it first aired in 2001, and I wanted to watch it, but I didn't get a chance. So hopefully I will, someday.


The Ransom of Red Chief, on ABC
IMDb; Sonar Entertainment; TV.com; TV Tango

I vaguely recall wanting to see this when it first aired in 1998, but I don't think I did. It's based on a short story by O. Henry, which I don't know if I ever read, though I'm sure I'd at least heard of it, years before this movie was made. (I feel like maybe one of my classmates read it in a grade school speaking contest. But maybe not.)


Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, on ABC
Disney Movies; Disney Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This aired in 1997. I was probably aware of it, but I can't recall why I wouldn't have watched it, unless maybe it conflicted with some other show.


The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh, on NBC
Disney Wiki; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

So I guess this was originally supposed to be a 3-episode miniseries, and it eventually aired as such on "The Wonderful World of Disney," in 1964. But prior to that it was released theatrically in edited form, as "Dr Syn, Alias the Scarecrow." Um... I don't think I'd ever heard of it until the late 90s or so, but it's possible I'm wrong about that. I do think I saw it around that time, but now I don't remember much about it. So I'd really like to see it again, sometime.


Snow White: The Fairest of Them All, on ABC
IMDb; Sonar Entertainment; TV.com; TV Tango; Wikipedia

This aired in 2002. I never saw it, but I remember wanting to.


Young Harry Houdini, on ABC
IMDb; TV.com; Wild About Harry

This aired in 1987. It starred Wil Wheaton. I must have enjoyed it at the time, but now I don't remember anything specific about it, and I'd really like to see it again sometime.
