DTV was a series of music videos created by The Walt Disney Company in 1984 by taking old hit songs of the past and putting them together with various footage of vintage Disney animation, created out of the trend of music videos on cable channel MTV, which inspired the name of this series. [1] The videos were shown as filler material on Disney Channel (as the network did not air commercials at this time), as well as being the focus of television specials. Home video collections were also released on the VHS, Beta, CED Videodisc, and Laserdisc formats. After the first run of DTV, in 1989 a second series was produced known as DTV².
