A brief sign-off clip from The Disney Channel's maiden season, when the network's program schedule aired only from 7am to 1 am (it would go 24/7 in 1986). The twenty-three second sign-off features a computer-generated image of Mickey Mouse's head flying over Planet Earth at night while the announcer wishes viewers a good night and a wonderful tomorrow. The theme music for the clip is "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" from the now-controversial Walt Disney animated feature Song Of The South (1946) which was never shown on TV, nor released on home video here in the United States (the Webmaster did get to see this movie in a theatre in the early 1970s as a child). For years a premium cable service in which subscribers paid an additional charge for, The Disney Channel switched to a basic service around 2000, which it remains today.
