Notes and disclaimers:

The episode list consists of four columns: the copyright year of the episode, the unofficial number of the episode, the title, and the date(s) that the episode was shown. The copyright year(s) were copied directly from the credits of the show. The unofficial episode number is a number I have assigned to the episode, usually denoting when it was first shown on the Disney Afternoon. The episode date(s) are from the first season of the Disney Afternoon.

The description file is basically the episode number and a short description of the episode following it.

"Gummi Bears" shows usually consisted of two clips comprising the complete 30-minute show. For reading ease only the first clip is assigned the episode number. To distinguish which description matches which clip, the first clip is assigned the letter "a" and the second is given "b". So a description labeled "31a" refers to the first clip of episode #31. Show dates run from Sept. 10, 1990 to Mar. 8, 1991. This covers 130 "showings" of the Disney Afternoon.

None of the copyright years are official, nor are the titles. Show dates and numbers are based on personal observation and note-taking. The description file is for private, non-commercial use, and entertainment purposes only; they are not supposed to be 100% accurate or consistent with the episodes' plots. Any or all responses to this file will be greatly appreciated.
