Wowzie, wowzie, woo-woo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been searching for something on this new dvd set for 20 years! I'm on camera, grilling both Roy Disney and Art Linkletter about the possible existence of a very rare film. Dave Smith has heard my wrath on this subject! Low and behold, today it's finally released!!!!

Kodak Presents, Disneyland '59!

My sweet lord! I've been told time and time again that this thing simply didn't exist. Bill Cotter has said he had never heard of an existing print.

For those of you who don't know, this was the "second opening" of Disneyland in 1959. Broadcast live a'la "Dateline Disneyland", this 90 minute special was hosted by Art Linkletter and featured celebs and visual intros to what the newly revamped park had to offer on June 14, 1959. Luckily, Dateline Disneyland was filmed as a kinescope from the live broadcast. Disneyland '59 was said to not exist on film. Well, this surprise DVD set offers it in all it's restored glory. The 'pre-filmed' or 'canned film footage that was inserted live into the original broadcast has even been restored and inserted, crystal clear into this new DVD.

Talk about an early Kwanzaa for me!!!! This was the Holy Grail...now it exists in my fuzzy, greedy little paws!!

If you love Disneyland, YOU MUST GET THIS SET!!!!!!

Yep, I am definitely getting this one. I can't help but hope that if this sells, Disney will continue to release rarely seen Disneyland material on DVD.

Well, I have to wait for Xmas for this one. My wife insisted the Treasures were presents. I managed to negotiate for the Silly Symphonies set but she wouldn't budge on the others.
