Disney's "Throwback Thursdays"

I guess Disney's doing something to celebrate their 30th anniversary of being on the air.

Remember Vault Disney back quite some time ago? It was late-night programming with Zorro, Mickey Mouse Club, and other assorted programs from the 50s/60s. I used to stay up to watch the Mickey Mouse Club myself, then proceed to bed after that. (Sorry, everything else.)

What does this have to do with AIW, you ask? Let me tell you.

On Thursdays - late nights - Disney's going to re-air some of their past series. This is going to be called "Throwback Thursdays", and it's going to be from 12am - 1am ET every Thursday. It's nothing big; just two episodes of one of their classic shows. Disney's PR page (@DisneyChannelPR, I'm linking to this for a reason - hold on) is asking their followers what they want to see every week. The show with the most popularity will ultimately get played.

So this is where AIW comes in. I linked to Disney's PR Twitter page because I'd like to see what would happen if a flock of AIW fans came together and just tweeted their support in for two episodes to air one night. I don't know if the network would do that, but it's worth a shot. The only problem regarding this? Most of the content for this block is from after 2001. So if there's a shot, there's a slim shot.

I say forget slim. Who's with me?

(I'll post something similar to this on Tumblr.)
