Tomorrowland: Disney in Space and Beyond (1955-57)

"welcome to the beginning of the future..."

in the mid 50's, Disney produced several fantastic episodes of Tomorrowland for ABC. these primetime specials brought the Space Age into every American home and helped greatly in garnering support for an ambitious space program which is still one of humanities greatest accomplishments. Ward Kimbell was the producer/director of these and they are full of clearly presented facts with absolutely brilliant modernist animation.

still essential for all children, and their parents alike.
