Treasures from the Disney Vault, Spetmber 2017

It's time for another quarterly installment of Treasures from the Disney Vault on TCM. Even though as I understand it the TCM-sponsored ride at Disney is no longer running, the part of the agreement that allows for a limited number of Disney things to show up on TCM is still there. I have to admit to not being the biggest fan of Disney's output, but having some of the stuff on TCM is still a good thing.

I note that there's only one animated short on the lineup tonight, Lonesome Ghosts at 12:15 AM, which has Mickey Mouse as a ghost hunter. And there's no Disneyland/Wonderful World of Disney episode either, which makes me wonder whether we're going to be seeing fewer "treasures" and more just a few of the more tentpole-like live-action titles that Disney produced back in the golden days. Hell, I'm amazed we even got the third-level animated features once or twice.

But the tentpole titles this time around include Swiss Family Robinson at 8:00 PM, and Freaky Friday overnight at 2:30 AM, for what it's worth.
