Walt Disney’s Disneyland 〜 When You Wish Upon a Star

April 08.2016


Walt Disney had produced many television series since 1954.

He wanted to produce a television program in order to finance the development of the Disneyland amusement park.

For first sixty years, his show used the song “When You Wish Upon a Star” as its theme.

The following is a memory of my childhood.

In Japan, this show was provided by Mitsubishi Electric, which was entitled “Mitsubishi Diamond Hour”.

This program was broadcasted at 20 pm in Friday.

Incidentally, it was once broadcast in two weeks.

Because It was bi-weekly broadcast with Japan Pro Wrestling relay.

At that time ‘Rikidozan’ was the most famous professional wrestler in Japan.

I was looking forward to see Walt Disney and Rikidozan.
