In this Disneyland episode, Walt Disney turns over the hosting duties to the Slave of the Mirror, an eerie animated character first introduced in the 1937 cartoon feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. His voice supplied by Hans Conried, the Slave explains that, while heroes are always given their due, villains are frequently ignored and maligned--hence this one-hour "tribute", comprised of excerpts from past Disney animated productions. Highlights include a battle between Captain Hook and the title character of Peter Pan (1953); the moronic connivances of Br'er Bear and Br'er Fox to make a lunch of the crafty Bre'er Rabbit in Song of the South (1947); that celebrated leviathan Monstro the Whale in Pinocchio (1940); and of course the Slave's own "boss", The Evil Queen (aka the Wicked Witch) in Snow White. First shown in 1956, Our Unsung Villains was curiously rebroadcast only once, in June of 1960.
