This is a film series much like the Hallmark Hall of Fame film series; however, for an unknown reason, IMDb lists each of these TV movies as episodes as if it were a tv series. None of these tv movies are even related. They were simply produced and distributed by the same company. Please change the description of each of the 61 “episodes” to “TV movie.” I’ve included a screenshot of one movie from the series.

Hi Cinephile, 

According to our research, The Wonderful World of Disney an anthology TV series and as such is correctly listed as a TV series.

If an episode was originally released as a stand alone movie completely separate from the series, and then re-released as an episode of the series, they will be eligible to be corrected to a movie, with a shell episode created on the TV series. The shell episode would not display any of the cast and crew which will maintain the credits of the cast and crew on the original film, and prevent the duplicate titles displaying on the page for the cast and crew. 

However if the original release was as part of The Wonderful World of Disney then they should remain as episodes of the anthology series. 

If you have any evidence that suggests the episode was first released as a stand alone movie, please provide that here and we will be able to look into this further for you.

Here is another explanation of what Michelle was getting at
Daniel Boone originated on Disney in 1959 It was not a stand alone Series until 1964
These 4 Daniel Boone Segments are not part of the Series.

Walt Disney, who was not greedy gave the rights to Fess Parker (Fespar) but NBC who had a say wanted it on their network. Fess Parker had no problem with that.
Loyalty! That's a lost concept.
