The Seeing Eye
Homesick for Danny, Kelly keeps running away and there's doubt she'll ever be a guide dog. Will Kelly be able to fulfill her destiny? Atta Girl, Kelly! is an inspirational story that is sure to win your heart. Atta Girl, Kelly! first appeared as a three-part series on Disney's Wonderful World of Color in 1968.
In October 2008, the buzz around The Seeing Eye campus almost equaled that of 1966, when Disney first sent a crew to film Atta Girl, Kelly! This time, Disney dispatched a film crew to create a short feature which appears on this newly released DVD version of the three-part series. Inspired by the story of Seeing Eye President and CEO Jim Kutsch, the Disney Company agreed to re-release the title in celebration of the school’s 80th Anniversary.
The DVD, released on Feb. 10, 2009, contains a special featurette that includes an interview with Kutsch. By juxtaposing scenes from the production against those filmed in 2008, it draws a fascinating comparison of the school’s program today and in 1966.
