The ABC Sunday Night Movie is a television program that aired on Sunday nights, first for a brief time in 1962 under the title Hollywood Special to supposedly replace an open time slot for a cancelled TV show, "Bus Stop", which was cancelled after March 1962. It then began airing regularly under its more commonly known title from late 1964 to 1998, on ABC. From 2004 on, it has aired sporadically as a special program, now titled "ABC Sunday Movie of the Week", though as of the 2011-12 television season, the only films in this timeslot are aired under the Hallmark Hall of Fame banner, which transferred to ABC in that season.
Walt Disney Productions has produced an anthology television series under several different titles since 1954. The original version of the series premiered on ABC, Wednesday night, October 27, 1954. The same basic show has since appeared on several networks, with its latest revival debuting in 2012 on Disney Junior. The show is the second longest showing prime-time program on American television, behind its rival, Hallmark Hall of Fame. However, Hallmark Hall of Fame was a weekly program only during its first five seasons, while Disney remained a weekly program for more than forty years.
