1960s Afternoon Special For Children

2 posts in this topic


I am new to this and I couldn't find Morty. Sorry.

I am trying to figure out the exact titile of a children's special that showed on some Saturday afternoons in the mid-60s, and I think at some point it also showed on Sundays, maybe in the evening. It had a long title, like "The ABC Sunday afternoon at the movies children's special," or The ABC rainy day children's special." It had different stories, and some were international, with various ethnic children acting in these stories. It was usually an hour long, I think. Maybe it was called children's hour? I'm not convinced it was ABC who produced these, but it was one of the networks. I remember it coming on in the mornings and then later it started coming on in the afternoons. It never was shown on a regular basis. I don't think it was Disney affiliated, but maybe???

Any one have any ideas about this? I used to love these.
