  • The Recess episodes "That Stinking Feeling"/"My Funny Valentines" and the Pepper Ann episodes "The First Date Club"/"Unicycle of Life" were originally aired on ABC's Disney's One Saturday Morning block. The air date for each of these episodes was November 13, 1999. It makes no sense for them to air in November because they are Valentine's Day-themed episodes. Valentine's Day takes place in February. Also the Disney's Doug episode "Doug's Sour Songbird" was aired on February 20, 1999 which was six days after Valentine's Day. I believe the proper air date for these episodes should have been February 13, 1999 which was the same day that Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You aired on ABC. Did Disney somehow forget that Valentine's Day takes place in February?

    • It just bugged me that these episodes aired in November instead of February considering the holiday theme for each of them. It makes more sense for these episodes to air in February because that's when Valentine's Day takes place. Don't you agree?

    • I do agree.

      It's possible whoever in charge at the time was not paying attention.

    • There was an advertisement for the Toon-Twister TV promotion that was held on ABC's Disney's One Saturday Morning block in February 1999. Everything on it was accurate except for one thing......."MouseWorks is coming to Disney's One Saturday Morning-March 13th."

      The show didn't premiere on Disney's One Saturday Morning until 2 months later on May 1st that year until its current title Mickey Mouse Works. Was Disney planning on having the show premiere on March 13th that year but for some reason had to have it postponed to a later date?

    • I was wondering what was being all this. The part where it says "MouseWorks is coming to Disney's One Saturday Morning-March 13th." in the Toon-Twister TV promotion ad was kind of misleading because the show didn't premiere on Disney's One Saturday Morning until May 1st that year under its current title.

    • Sounds like poor marketing.

        Loading editor
    • And you know what else is poor marketing? The fact that they were going to release Doug's 1st Movie as a direct-to-video film but changed their minds at the last minute and decided to release it theatrically all because of the success of Nick's The Rugrats Movie.

    • The Return of Jafar was released in May 1994(two years after the release of the first Aladdin film). Dan Castellaneta provided the voice for Genie instead of Robin Williams all because of some issues had with Disney in regards to his character..........But he DOES return in the third and final installment of the film AKA The King of Thieves.

    • They were also supposed to release A Goofy Movie during the Holiday season in 1994 but the film had to be postponed to April 1995 due to production problems which resulted in them having to put The Lion King in its place.

      The film was originally intended to be released in theaters during the holiday season of 1994. However, some production problems in France delayed the film's release to Spring of 1995, while The Lion King was reissued to fill in for the film's absence.

      Do you any any idea why they messed up with Treasure Planet so much?

        Loading editor
    • I don't know. Probably for a fast buck, I guess. Now back to The Rescuers. There was a trailer for its VHS re-release. It was planned to have been released during the Thanksgiving season in 1998, but for some strange reason it was postponed to January 1999. Then after that, it was recalled of some sexual images on the cover of the VHS and it ended up being re-released two months later in March 1999.

      Controversy

      On January 8, 1999, three days after the film's second release on home video, the Walt Disney Company announced a recall of about 3.4 million copies of the videotapes because there was an objectionable image in one of the film's background cels.

      The image in question is a blurry image of a topless woman that appears in two out of the film's more than 110,000 frames. The image appears twice in nonconsecutive frames during the scene in which Miss Bianca and Bernard are flying on Orville's back through New York City. The two images could not be seen in ordinary viewing because the film runs too fast - at 29.97 frames per second on video.

      In 1999, two days after the recall was announced, the London press site, The Independent reported:

      "A Disney spokeswoman said that the images in The Rescuers were placed in the film during production, but she declined to say what they were or who placed them...The company said the aim of the recall was to keep its promise to families that they can trust and rely on the Disney brand to provide the best in family entertainment."

      The Rescuers video was reissued March 23, 1999, with the offending image edited out.

      Due to the announcement of a recall of The Rescuers video on January 8, 1999, the movie's stand-alone DVD release did not come out until May 20, 2003.

      I would have never gussed Disney had this many problems.

    • Wow! 

      There is cleary something with Disney's TV divsion.

    • During the 1999-00 season schedule, they made a deal with UPN(the same network that aired Moesha, The Parkers, In the House, etc.)by giving them the rights to air some of their cartoons which resulted in Disney's One Too. The shows on the lineup that year were Hercules: The Animated Series, Disney's Doug, Sabrina The Animated Series, and Recess. The first time in ran was on September 6, 1999 with the Sabrina The Animated Series episode "Most Dangerous Witch" which was the show's pilot. The first Recess episodes to air on that block were "The First Picture Show" and "The Big Prank". They were aired on September 12, 1999(the same day as the Sabrina The Animated Series episode "Picture Perfect" and a day after the episodes "One Stayed Clean" and "A Genius Among Us" which aired on Disney's One Saturday Morning on September 11 that year). 1TooLogo.jpgDisney%27s_One_Too_logo.jpg1TooAd.jpg

    • Not that I know of. However, I do know that when Pepper Ann was added to Disney's One Too the episodes that aired were released as Season 4 episodes. They should have been released as Season 3 episodes because they aired the same time as the ones on Disney's One Saturday Morning.

    • I'm flexible too. And I understand that no one's perfect or anything but, as you can see, all of these mistakes that I pointed out shouldn't have occured. Like A Goofy Movie having to be postponed from its November '94 planned release date due to production issues, Disney's One Saturday Morning having to be postponed a week later due to Princess Diana's funeral, giving Simba and Nala a daughter instead of a son in Simba's Pride, the Recess episode "Yes, Mikey, Santa Does Shave" airing the day after Christmas due to Bill Clinton's impeachment speech, The Rescuers have to be re-released on VHS due it containing on offensive image, Doug's 1st Movie being released theatrically instead of directly-to-video, and Mickey Mouse Works premiering on May 1st of '99 instead of March 13th.

I'm Tolerant emough to visualize international fantasy tales, I'm not one who cares when certain new videos come out I just love collect what I enjoy the best.  I don't mind when or how a certain holiday is celebrated in differnt places, plus I'm not one who'd be bothered by the stuff you mention on this page with an impolite title. Early production I don't mind. Holiday shows done year round I don't mind either, especially when comparing personal enjoyment of many fans.

    • And that's perfectly fine. But, what I'm trying to say is that Disney could've done a better job with their films/television shows during the Renaissance era.

      1. A Goofy Movie was planned to have been released in November '94 but had to be postponed to a year later due to production issues and The Lion King had to be reissued in its place. 2. Disney's One Saturday Morning was planned to premiere on ABC on September 6th, 1997, but had to be postponed to a week later due to the broadcast of Princess Diana's funeral. 3. Simba and Nala were supposed to have a son named Kopa, but got changed at the last minute and they ended up having a daughter named Kiara. 4. The Recess episode "Yes, Mikey, Santa Does Shave" was planned to have aired on December 19th 1998, but had to be postponed to December 26th due to Disney's One Saturday Morning being pre-emptied for Bill Clinton's impeachment speech. 5. The Rescuers was released on VHS on January 5, 1999 but had to be recalled due to containing an image of a topless woman and had to be reissued on March 23rd. 6. The Disney's Doug episode "Doug's Sour Songbird" airing on February 20th, 1999 instead of February 13th. 7. The Pepper Ann episodes "The First Date Club" and "Unicycle of Life" airing as part of its 3rd season instead of its 2nd season. 8. The Recess episodes "That Stinking Feeling" and "My Funny Valentines" airing as part of its 3rd season instead of its 2nd season. 9. Doug's 1st Movie was planned to have been released as a direct-to-film as The First Movie Ever, but was released theatrically due to the box office success of The Rugrats Movie. 10. Mickey Mouse Works was planned to premiere on Disney's One Saturday Morning on March 13th 1999 under the title "MouseWorks", but for unknown reasons it postponed to May 1st. 11. The Recess episodes that aired on Disney's One Too were listed as 4th season episodes instead of 3rd season episodes.

    • To be fair regarding One Saturday Morning's premiere being changed, I doubt anyone planned for Princess Dye to die like that. Plus, "Yes, Mikey, Santa Does Shave" being changed to December 26 instead of December 19 actually fits in a bit closer to the season of Christmas considering a large part of the episode dealt with Christmas (plus, like with the Dye example above, Bill Clinton getting impeached had not been planned at all). I do agree with the others, though... that was definitely reflecting badly on Disney (like removing Kopa for Kiara. I like Kiara, but they really should keep their internal lore straight. It's even more surprising that they screwed up like that considering they actually avoided having the Hyenas act as Zira's henchmen because they managed to remember that the Hyenas were the reason Scar was six feet under). And while I don't mind them releasing Doug's first movie as a theatrical release rather than a DTV movie, they really should have spent more time fixing up the film to actually BE worthy of a theatrical release. Thank goodness they learned their lesson with Recess: School's Out, where they made sure it met up with the quality necessary for a theatrical release.

      So far as Return of Jafar, maybe if Katzenberg didn't play Robin Williams like a fiddle and reneign on his vow to not use him in marketing during Aladdin's development, or, for that matter, him sabotaging any chance of The Rescuer's Down Under being a box office success due to it not meeting as high of advertising revenue as he liked, we probably would have Robin Williams reprising the role of Genie for all the Aladdin sequels, plus the TV series, not to mention the sequels would have been genuine theatrical releases (I suspect that the box office failure of Rescuers Down Under was the primary reason why we got the infamous DTV sequel line). As far as the Rescuers, honestly, I could sort of understand, say, recalling and cutting out the priests knee due to its unfortunate placement in The Little Mermaid, but you literally would only need to pause the movie to find that topless woman, it went by that fast. It's a blink and you'd miss it moment. Not sure that's really all that worthy of a recall.

      And funny you should mention Disney's deal with UPN regarding One Too. I remember being pretty ticked off by them doing One Too, since it really upset my schedule (before they did the One Too thing, the UPN schedule they had was Pokémon, Duck Tales, Hercules, and Doug, for 3:00, 3:30, 4:00, and 4:30). I was especially incensed at the fact that they basically removed Pokémon from the air times. Fortunately, I managed to relocate shortly after to Kids WB afterward, so it wasn't a total loss, but still...

    • Change plans of which family member to show, Kopa and then Kiara instead, I accept change, deals like that are small deal in video results. It's the family tree confusion I'd try to make clearer including what Scar's Lion Guard did, and some facts of Mufasa's grandfather too. Keeping Shenzi's clan out the sequel wasn't a big deal either she was annoyed enough by Scar's word enemies to eat him and quickly leave, that's fine he's a wicked trickster. Even in the TV series Lion Guard, Scar deserves to be betrayed.

      I'd say it wasn't Genie himself playing weird scenes in the Return Of Jafar at all, it's just how feindish and tough Jafar always spoke. Jafar underestimated Genie plus Jafar was quite both jealous and willful. Two genies against each other immediate magical spells so numerous I can see how much courage the blue genie with Aladdin really needed to use while standing up for his friends.
