  • Hallmark licenses 99 Walt Disney films

    >>NEW YORK, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Hallmark Channel has acquired the rights to 99 family-friendly movies from Disney-ABC Domestic Television, some of the greatest family films of all time. The deal was announced today by Michelle Vicary, Senior Vice President, Acquisitions and Scheduling.

    The newly acquired movies will play on Hallmark Channel and on its sibling channel, Hallmark Movie Channel -- a new 24-hour channel which airs the greatest family movies of all time. The expansive list of baby boomer favorites includes Disney's "The Shaggy Dog," "Flubber," "Old Yeller," "The Parent Trap," "The Incredible Journey," "The Princess Diaries," "Freaky Friday," "The Santa Clause," "Bedknobs and Broomsticks," "That Darn Cat," "The Love Bug," "The Shaggy Dog," "Mighty Joe Young," "Babes in Toyland," "The Cat from Outer Space," "Gus," "Return to Snowy River," "Snowball Express," "White Fang," "The Apple Dumpling Gang" and "Swiss Family Robinson."

    "We are thrilled about this deal, one of our most ambitious ever," said Vicary. "This acquisition is another big step in our growth. It will help us expand our library of programming, drive ratings and lower our demos. Most of all, these movies are perfectly suited for the Hallmark brand of family-friendly programming and for the boomer generation, and will therefore help us attract advertisers and spur distribution for both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel."

    The Princess Diaries is a baby-boomer favorite? I thought it came out in 2001. Same with The Shaggy Dog remake (It shows two Shaggy Dogs, so I'm guessing one is the original and one is the remake)

      Cool ... this will make it as a sort of classic Disney Channel. Too bad they have commercials.

        The original Hallmark channel has already been showing several
        of those Disney movies, usually on Saturdays, late morning and
        early afternoon.
        Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

                They seem to air The Parent Trap (both the original and the remake, though the latter more often) and Pollyanna at least 20 times every month. Every time I put it on Hallmark it's one of those movies or MASH reruns.

                  Hallmark Channel has been more Disney than the Disney Channel for years now...

                    Just in case anybody wants to know TCM (Turner Classic Movies) is showing The Strongest Man in the World tomorrow at 10am and Son of Flubber on April 20th at the same time. Candleshoe will be shown on May 31st.
                    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?
