I don't think anyone does Mathis kind of anthology any more. Shows like Mystery Science Theater 3000 have no place in this Netflix world where you can assemble your own anthology from thousands of titles.

I think the issue with more Disney themed programming depends on the platform. Obviously, Disney Channel has found a successful formula for producing new programming that is quickly identified as Disney, furthering the brand. On the other hand, Once Upon A Time is drawing from virtually every Disney character ever drawn, making it difficult to bring them to the small screen in separate content vehicles.

I have long thought that Disney could do well with a Disney Premium Channel, programmed with their incredible library of animated and live action theatrical and television produced content. I think today's market of anytime anywhere content access coupled with nostalgic media viewing, coupled with Disney's brand loyalty among life long as would make this a not only viable but profitable.

But we should remember that Disney and ABC first worked together in a deal that both funded and essentially advertised the Disneyland theme park, so the idea of producing hour long Disney commercials on ABC is not a new one.

Who expects Disney and Haunted Mansion loyalists would object to anything that dilutes or contradicts the backstory of The Haunted Mansion...
