Not only have I heard of every single one of them, but I've seen them too. When they were initially released theatrically, no less.

I'm not sure who had it worse in the 70s, Dean Jones or Kurt Russell. At least Kurt Russell moved on to non-Disney movies and ended up with a decent career. Dean Jones, not so much.

One of their best films never gets any airtime and I can never find it:

The North Avenue Irregulars.

Cloris Leachman is a scream in that film. I want a fleet of giant Lincoln Town Cars with matching built-in rotary car phones.

I recall that from when I was a kid, wish I could find it easier as well, on NetFlix or something.

I wish Netflix or Amazon, or some online thing, would try to buy up a lot of older barely remembered films and short-lived TV shows.   Obviously there isn't much of an audience, but, isn't that the point of online streaming... things don't have to have much of an audience... memory is cheap, just load some servers up with these shows that lasted a season or less.   Some shows get thrown up by people who recorded it on Youtube at least.

/And really, #1 is Shaggy D.A.?  I totally remember that (of course, I was born in 73, so, I guess I saw all of those on TV when I was around 6-7).

Bite your tongue, Hatermitter! The Gnome-Mobile was freakin GENIUS! It was my first drive-in movie. I knew all the songs by heart, and sang them loudly whenever we were driving in my dad's Bug, which I had decided was the Gnome-Mobile. (My dad loved me doing this. Really.)  "Gnome Mobile, it's the Gnome Mobile, we're all riding along in the Gnome Mobile!"

Agree with the Cloris Leachman love for the North Ave Irregulars

I was 27 and pregnant with my son when I saw Alien. Needless to say the chestburster scene grossed me out a tad.

The only one I vaguely remember is The Shaggy DA.

I'm a little surprised that The Cat from Outer Space didn't make this list.

/Disney really had a rough go of it in that decade or two after Walt died, didn't they?

They were much better in literary form.

I'm just glad that Blackbeard's Ghost didn't make the list.

I saw a snippet of The Gnome-mobile on TV a few years back....it hadn't aged well.

Come to think of it most of Disney's live action movies were pretty horrible (Tron and The Black Hole being a couple of notable exceptions).

That was mine and my now wife's first date movie. I can't believe we went to a Disney movie on our first date. Anyway, we're still together after 33 years.
 
2013-12-23 09:31:39 PM
Born in 72.  It seems like once or twice a year all through elementary school, they'd round up everyone in the gym and we'd watch some Disney film or another.  I have probably seen most of these, Shaggy DA fer sure.  Generally, it was a decent one, like Herbie or Bed Knobs and Broomsticks, but yeah.  Disney has put out some odd shiat over the years.

Disney really churned out some pieces of shiat between the period of Walt's death and Eisner coming in as CEO.  I think they were bound by their need to be "family friendly", but they didn't have Walt Disney's skill at pulling that off without being too hokey.

The Unidentified Flying Oddball was a big hit in our neighborhood when I was about 5 years old.
For some reason we all thought it was called Unidentified Flying Eyeball, though.
 
2013-12-23 09:45:45 PM
I may have seen these movies but was able to repress my memories of them.
 
2013-12-23 09:47:22 PM
Born in '88, and I'd heard of The Strongest Man in the World and The Shaggy D.A., even before they remade it with Tim Allen.

Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says "Give me your best shot. I can take it."

Yep, I was surprised that movie didn't make the list. I managed to catch three of the seven, mostly because my mother limited my TV time and I had to go sleep over at a friend's house to get in some really awful 70s movie watching.
 
2013-12-23 09:54:44 PM
I grew up in the 1970's. I can't believe I am the only kid who enjoyed these movies. These were kid's movies after all. They didn't need to make sense to adults.
 
2013-12-23 09:56:05 PM
Holy shiat I think this is the first "worst obscure movie list" I scored a goose egg on. I guess I need to remove myself from someones yard.

Jodie Foster was another child actress that appeared in quite a few Disney movies. I also remember her as the neighbor girl on the TV show, "The Courtship of Eddie's Father". Like Kurt Russell she managed to successfully transition from being a child actor to an adult actor.

I saw Shaggy DA and Million Dollar Duck in theaters.  I've seen the rest of them either on the tube or on DVD.

Subby must be about 17 years old.

When I skimmed first, I thought that WAS Kutcher for the sake of a joke about the movie, not a movie still.

In always thought young Kurt was adorable (yes, I saw these in their theatrical release - or at least at the drive in). Now, you have tainted my memories, and I will never be able to unsee that.

A pox upon your house.
 
2013-12-23 10:18:08 PM
+1 for seeing most of these in the theater. And not just any theater -- a mall theater. Typical Saturday: mom takes us to the mall, we go to the movies and watch a crappy Disney movie while mom goes shopping. An hour and a half later, it's off to the Woolworth's luncheonette for some food.

The greatest mall trip was seeing King Kong (1976). I was 14, and Jessica Lange made it move.
