The opening for Walt Disney's "Wonderful World of Color" circa 1960s
I can't tell you how influential the 50-60s era Disney aesthetic was on me. Everything from the jewel toned designs to the songs filled with swelling choruses. In its syndicated run in the 80s, I used to watch this special with my mom every week, hypnotized by the kaleidoscope effects in the opening. Although studying up on Walt himself later in life, I came to find him and Disney an evil threat on a real sense of grassroots communities and a homogenizing, sanitizing force on American culture.... But, I digress. Aren't those colored lights magical?
