* HeadsIWinTailsYouLose: In "At Home with Donald Duck", Donald tries to celebrate his birthday by showing his nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, some of his cartoons, but they want to watch other Disney characters' cartoons instead. At one point, to compromise, Donald has a coin-flip bet with the boys and picks heads, but Donald tries to cheat by using [[TwoHeadedCoin a coin with heads on both sides]]. Not only do the nephews not fall for his scheme, but they retaliate by tricking him so that Donald has to run after the coin out of the house.

In 1961 the series moved to {{Creator/NBC}} and was broadcast on color for the first time. The series remained on NBC for 20 years before moving for two seasons on {{Creator/CBS}} in 1981. The series was canned in 1983 as not to provide competition for the new DisneyChannel. But in 1986, the series returned to ABC and then to NBC in 1988 before being cancelled again, moving to the Disney Channel in 1990 as an umbrella title for Sunday night movies and specials. After Disney's buyout of ABC, the series returned to television in 1997 as an outlet for Disney movies and specials, as well as miniseries and films from outside studios. In the early 2000s, the series aired periodically, usually in the summer months until apparently being cancelled for good in 2008, making the Disney anthology series [[LongRunner the second longest-running primetime show on television.]] The series returned to ABC in December 2015, again only airing new specials on a sporadic basis.

** Their 1999 remake of ''Film/{{Annie|1999}}'' had Grace (the social worker who brings Annie to Daddy Warbucks's mansion) be played by Audra [=McDonald=], a black actress - which raises eyebrows at the very end, when Daddy proposes marriage to Grace. (Interracial marriage was not illegal in New York in the 1930s, but it is ''extremely'' far-fetched to suppose that [[PoliticallyCorrectHistory such a rich and powerful character would publicly attempt it]].)

** In another real-life example, Walt Disney filmed "The Scarecrow in Romney Marsh" in widescreen, even though TV channels and screens at the time only had 4:3 picture. This allowed Disney to re-edit the episodes into a movie, and play it in British movie theaters. Even later, the widescreen masters allowed Disney to release a ''Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh'' Walt Disney Treasures DVD with picture that fills more of an HDTV screen than a 4:3 DVD would have.

* CrazyPrepared: In a real-life example, Walt Disney filmed ''Disneyland'' and ''Walt Disney Presents'' in color, even though ABC only broadcast in black and white at the time. Walt knew that there would a time when television would be in color. Sure enough, within a few years of the show's broadcasting, color television became more common among households, and networks could air the color versions of these episodes when showing reruns of the show.

* MultiPartEpisode: Several of Disney's live-action films were either split into several parts for television or condensed into an hour. This was abandoned sometime in the late 1970s, when feature films like ''Film/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea'' and ''Film/TheParentTrap'' were shown longer than the traditional hour-long slot.
** This was also the case with original television productions like "The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" and "The Boy From Dead Man's Bayou".
