Cartoon Production Information:

Originally broadcast on the "Disneyland" television show.

Combined animation and experimental photography.

This was the last of three "science-factual" color shorts for the popular "Disneyland" television series; "Man in Space" and "Man and the Moon" were the first two.

"Mars and Beyond" was broadcast shortly after Sputnik I. It was also released theatrically in 1957, but was not shown on the big screen again for over 40 years.

E.C. Slipher, an astronomer from the Lowell Observatory in Arizona, joined Wernher von Braun and Ernst Stulinger (who had been advisors on Ward Kimball's other two science-fiction shorts) as technical consultants on the film.

After seeing "Mars and Beyond," a fascinated Walt Disney declared, "Where do you get this stuff???"

Re-edited into the 1957 short "Cosmic Capers."

Donald Duck is seen in a cameo among a crowd of monsters during a chase scene.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
