"A Fire Called Jeremiah" is an episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. It originally aired on NBC on December 3, 1961.

Synopsis

The fight to stop a raging Montana forest fire emphasizes the value of conservation. This episode tells the story of a forest fire in the northern Rocky Mountains, emphasizing smoke jumper training and the roles of the Forest Service in controlling a large fire.

Walt Disney was quite a fan of Stewart’s work. Before Fire was written, Disney invited him to the studio to work as a consultant. Stewart spent a few days there, working up ideas for educational films and a series of proposed series of films about American folklore. Although never credited, his influence can be seen in Song of the South, Johnny Appleseed, and the True-Life Adventures films, among others. Stewart and Disney had lunch together during Stewart’s studio time; and Disney sent a warm letter to Stewart after his visit.
