ABC-TV, Disney Go To Court
'Zorro,' 'Mouse' fates in question, 'Disney Presents' goes on as usual

Disney vs. ABC Motion picture mogul sues network in New York court for release of Zorro and Mickey Mouse Club, both of which go off ABC-TV in fall but which Disney wants to offer to other networks or to stations via syndication.

Walt Disney and ABC, whose close tv relationship dates back to 1954, last week were on court-speaking terms. Walt Disney Productions Inc. filed suit Wednesday (July 1) in New York's federal district court charging ABC with "illegally" attempting to prevent the Disney-produced Zorro and Mickey Mouse Club from being telecast in the fall. The court was asked to invalidate agreements between Walt Disney Productions and ABC under provisions of the federal antitrust act.
