This 1950s Walt Disney Animation Explores How Cats Went From Gods To Devils

It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

This delightful animation was part of a weekly hour-long television program Disney put together for ABC back in 1954 in exchange for their help building Disneyland. Youtuber Disneytv4me writes, “As a result, the television show was also originally named Disneyland. The anthology series has since gone through a number of name changes over the years: Walt Disney Presents, Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color, The Wonderful World of Disney, Disney’s Wonderful World, Walt Disney, The Disney Sunday Movie, and The Magical World of Disney. The series spanned an incredible 54 years—13 seasons of which were hosted by Walt Disney, himself.” Here now, for your enjoyment, is a piece they did on the history of cats.
