Treasures From the Disney Vault Returns to TCM September 2016


Every few months, Turner Classic Movies offers up an evening of Disney classics, and the next installment of “Treasures From the Disney Vault” will air Thursday, September 8, 2016.

Hosted by noted film critic Leonard Maltin, the programming begins at 8pm and continues into the wee hours. Here is the complete schedule (times ET) of this month’s collection of Disney films and TV shows:

8:00 PM Tugboat Mickey (1940) – Mickey Mouse and his inept crew try to save a sinking ship. (7 minutes) + Boat Builders (1938) – Mickey, Goofy and Donald try to build their own boat. (7 minutes)

8:30 PM Treasure Island (1950) – A young boy and a pirate clash over buried treasure. (96 minutes)

10:15 PM Davy Crockett and the River Pirates (1956) – After competing in a river boat race, Davy Crockett and Mike Fink join forces to fight pirates. (121 minutes)

11:45 PM Disneyland Around the Seasons (1966) – Walt Disney introduces viewers to the newest attractions at Disneyland, including New Orleans Square, It’s a Small World and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. He also shows off some of the park’s holiday traditions. (52 minutes)

1:00 AM Those Calloways (1965) – A fur trapper dreams of building a bird sanctuary. (131 minutes)

3:30 AM Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color: A Country Coyote Goes Hollywood (1965) – After hiding in a moving van, a coyote lands in Hollywood. (37 minutes)

4:15 AM Midnight Madness (1980) – College students compete in an all-night scavenger hunt. Cast includes Michael J. Fox and David Naughton. (112 minutes)


I think I’m most looking forward to watching Disneyland Around the Seasons, just to hear about the park from Walt himself. And I may set the DVR for Midnight Madness – I don’t remember it being a great movie, but it might be worth revisiting.

Which ones are you looking forward to seeing?

  1. Disneyland Around the Seasons originally aired the Sunday (December 18) after Walt Disney passed away on December 15. Something TCM probably won’t show is that the original airing on NBC was preceded by a short memorial about Walt from NBC newsman Chet Huntley and actor Dick Van Dyke. They explained that Walt had pre-filmed his introductions for the series for that season and those would continue to run until the end of the season which was scheduled with “A Salute to Alaska” (April 2, 1967). Walt had filmed that final introduction October 6, 1966 and then on October 27th Walt filmed the segments for the famous Epcot film.

  2. Midnight Madness! One of my all time favorite 80s teen movies! Glad its getting some love, although its at 4am lol
