Launched as a commercial-free premium channel (with the exception of advertisements for Disney entertainment products, see Mike's Super Short Show), the Disney Channel began with basic family programming of shows and movies. (It was then co-owned by The Walt Disney Company and Westinghouse through Group W.) The channel received a special citation from U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1984. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disney_Channel
This is the least remembered and least recognized period for Disney. Post-Walt and Pre-Michael Eisner. But though nothing from this decade amounted to "Citizen Kane", many of the films were quite charming.
A great deal of wonderful animated movies have been made in the past few years that Walt Disney Studios have not always created and/or produced. Many other production companies have branched into kids' films. Can you tell Disney from non-Disney?
