The Wonderful World of Disney (or, Saturday Nights When I Was A Kid)

Today’s prompt: S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT! What’s your favorite way to spend Saturday night?

I am a confirmed homebody and am proud to state it for all the world to know. Spending Saturday nights at home is a well grounded childhood memory. After our baths, we sat in front of the television to watch Lawrence Welk and the Wonderful World of Disney. As a teenager I spent weekend nights babysitting and watching the ABC Saturday night lineup of fun shows (remember the Love Boat?). In college it was staying up late to see the live musical act on SNL.

Now, after a long week full of meetings, decisions, training, paperwork, trouble-shooting, and anything else that’s thrown my way at work, Saturday is MY day. I typically do only what I want during the day. It may be reading or shopping or baking or napping; regardless of my choice, I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to do.

By the time the sun goes down, I’m feeling human again and ready for some company. Nothing shocking here: a good dinner, a movie, and a comfy couch with my guy. Since we make Friday night our date-night, Saturday nights are meant for hanging out at home!

Today I’d like to thank the earliest and perhaps some of the fondest memories I have of S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Nights: The Wonderful World of Disney.

  1. When I was a kid Sunday Night was the best. We’d watch Disney from 6 – 8 followed by the Ed Sullivan Show.


  2. Lawrence Welk came on, on Saturday’s it was the only show my aunt watched. After Lawrence Welk and his big band and bubbles went off the Flintstone s came on. That was my favorite show and it still is.


  3. Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane – the intro to Disney brought back those days. For us, Disney was on Sunday nights. Saturday night it was baths, malted milkshakes, then Flipper!


  4. Thank you for the Disney memories! It’s always great to remember our childhood memories. I too spent many Saturday nights with Disney movies. Today they are an excellent way to escape from meetings, clients and work in general.(Love the video)
