Axed: Saturday Disney ending after 26 years
One of the longest-running kid's shows in Australia is coming to an end later this month.
Seven children’s show Saturday Disney is ending after a 26 year run -one of the longest-running kid’s shows in Australia.
Two weeks ago hosts Teigan Nash, Candice Dixon and Nathan Morgan filmed their last ever episode.
“The places we have been, the people we have met and the memories we’ll never forget! What an epic team! Thank you to each and everyone of you and anyone we have ever worked with!” Nash posted on Instagram.
“Unfortunately the show is coming to an end. Sept 24th is the last episode.”
Saturday Disney consists of Disney-produced content and hosted segments with activities such as craft, science, animals, letter of the week, jokes, camping and trips including to the USA, Singapore and more.
The show began in Brisbane in 1990 but moved to Sydney in 1999. Since 2012 it has enjoyed two airings, early mornings on Seven and repeated thereafter on 7TWO
Over two and a half decades Saturday Disney has been a springboard for the careers of Shelley Craft, James Sherry, Sofie Formica, Jack Yabsley, Mel Symons and Sara Groen. Shae Brewster was the longest-serving host, just short of eleven years.
