    It's meant for 2-6 year olds so I really don't have much hope in it.

    It's also about 20 years too late. The Aladin show was really good (to a 10 year old).

    So's My Little Pony, but that didn't stop it from being really popular with adults. ;)

    I'm cautiously optimistic about this one. The latest press release has a bit more info that sounds promising.

    (Exclamation added.)

    So, it's in continuity with the first two movies (and presumably not the Timon and Pumbaa tv series or TLK 1-1/2, which is good), and it sounds like they're taking the animals and African culture seriously. It could be horrible, of course, but I'm eager to give it a shot.

    Disney Junior has some really entertaining shows. The Octonauts, Jake & the Neverland Pirates, Doc McStuffins and Sophia the First are all excellent shows. The best thing about Disney Junior is there are no commercials, so it's peaceful when you let your kids watch it. While I think Nick Jr shows are more educational, A lot of them are old and repeats.

    My nieces love Disney Junior, and I crack up watching the shows sometimes because of familiar voice actors.

    Why don't Disney put out their TV shows like Tarzan, Aladdin and Timon and Pumbaa on DVD ?

    Anyone have any idea ?

    They do put out DVD's but are slow to do so. We have several, Jake, Sophia and Doc McStuffins.

    Disney is stupid. They seemed to release 80s shows, Gummi Bears, Rescue Rangers, Tale Spin and such but not mid 90s shows.

    And just so we're all on the same page: it's fan art. (Thank god; everything is horribly off-model.)

    Looks cute.

    Must suck for Disney haters right now.

    Disney's taking over the damned world! Maybe JMS was right when he had Garibaldi refuse a three day pass to "Disney Planet"?
