Sunday Nights with Walt by Richard Rothrock
What were you doing on Sunday night fifty years ago? For many Americans, starting in the 1950s, the answer was: watching Walt Disney's TV show. Richard Rothrock's comprehensive history of that show, in its many forms, will take you back to long-ago Sunday nights spent together with family...and Walt Disney.
Rothrock combines meticulous backstories and episode synopses with insight into how Walt's TV show shaped American culture and how it shaped his own childhood, gently exposing him to the wide, wonderful world outside his small town—a world not just of Disney, but of nature, history, foreign cultures, and even romance.
