Disney - Wonderful World Of Color - 1963

Image and video hosting by TinyPic This is a Best-Of album of sorts with contributions from cutie-pies Annette and Hayley, and Fess Parker and others. The forgotten Hector, the stowaway pup, and Sammy, the way-out seal are also involved. You begged your parents for this and didn't get it. But Uncle Ed just now came through for you.
