These were broadcast late in the morning or "noonish", depending on where you lived.

I do! Since you started this type of thread, hope you wont mind me asking about show I miss. I don't remember what they were called, maybe the World Of Disney. ?? But they were better than any I've seen in recent years. They had this wonderful deep voiced man tell about animals and such. He was a great story teller. Like they'd give names to a raccoon family and show their adventures. Appreciate any help, as I'd love to watch them again. Oh, they are old shows, maybe from the 60's.

Was it Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color? I loved the shows about the animals, too.
I graduated high school in 78, so I was a little old for the OP's ABC Weekend Specials. I think I've seen somewhere that quite a few of today's well-known actors got their starts on those & the After School shows.
