Disney’s 1991 Super Bowl Half-Time Spectacular featuring New Kids On The Block


Prior to last night’s NFL Super Bowl XLIX, we showed the 2000 halftime show, which was the last time Disney was asked to put on the halftime performance. But they had done the production five times prior.

Fun bit of trivia: The first ever Super Bowl halftime show in 1967 was produced by Tommy Walker, who was the Entertainment Director for Disneyland.

Although one Richard Sherman played for the Seahawks last night, the first time a Richard Sherman was in the super bowl was in 1977 during the first Disney produced “it’s a small world” themed half-time show. We don’t have video of that show, but we do have the 1991 show which featured It’s A Small World, New Kids on the Block, and giant Disney inflatables. What’s not to like?

Imagine if they’d trotted out that show last night instead of Katy Perry? What do you think the world would make of that?Read More »Disney’s 1991 Super Bowl Half-Time Spectacular featuring New Kids On The Block
