Before 1983, Walt Disney Productions distributed television programs as well as feature-length movies, including those that broadcast on NBC, CBS and ABC. The name "Walt Disney Television" was adopted at the same time with Buena Vista Television. Animated programs were distributed since December 1984.
Before 2007, Disney-ABC Domestic Television was known as Buena Vista Television, first established when the Disney Channel launched as a premium cable television network.
Walt Disney TelevisionEdit
During the early '80s, aired on CBS every Satuday evening at 7:00 p.m. was the Walt Disney anthology series. Each broadcast comprised of a Disney original film, often split into two parts.
After the Walt Disney anthology series was discontinued in late 1983 on CBS, it was succeeded by Walt Disney Pictures Television.
Animated series such as The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Little Mermaid]], Aladdin and Timon & Pumbaa don't often have this logo, rather having in-credit texts when broadcast on the networks mentioned above.
After Walt Disney Television went defunct in 2003, in its place within animated series was the Walt Disney Television Animation logo. It was seen on programs that originally aired on ABC Kids, Disney Channel, Toon Disney, and Disney XD, and can still be seen on those programs on DVD and on iTunes.
Buena Vista TelevisionEdit
This first logo starts off with the text displaying "Walt Disney Television". It can be found on shows like The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, DuckTales, and The Golden Girls.
Usually only seen on older prints of TV shows from the early 90's, including Bill Nye the Science Guy.
No longer available on TV, it was last seen on 2008 reruns of the Spanish dubbed version of Bill Nye the Science Guy on Univision.
More common than the previous logos, it may appear on television series from the late 90s to the 2000s, including early 2000s episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos. Unlike the 95' version, this logo also supports a long version where it starts at the overlook of the earth globe with more comets put in place at the beginning, sometimes the full and medium length versions could be animated without the first 3 comets used.
No longer current, so it could be a rare find. It will appear on television series distributed by Buena Vista Television during the mid-2000s as well as for the medium and extended length versions of this logo.
Disney/ABC Domestic TelevisionEdit
Currently appears on most shows distributed by Buena Vista Television and The Walt Disney Company, including Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Live with Regis And Kelly, and others.
