- Hallmark Channel has bought the rights to 99 classic Disney films. Most of these are baby boomer favorites like: "The Shaggy Dog," "Flubber," "Old Yeller," "The
Parent Trap," "The Incredible Journey," "The Princess Diaries," "Freaky
Friday," "The Santa Clause," "Bedknobs and Broomsticks," "That Darn
Cat," "The Love Bug," "The Shaggy Dog," "Babes in
Toyland," "The Cat from Outer Space," "Gus," "Return to Snowy River,"
"Snowball Express," "White Fang," "The Apple Dumpling Gang" and "Swiss
Family Robinson." This is exactly the sort of fare that helped make The Disney Channel a success. It’s a shame Disney can’t find some venue of their own to showcase these.
