Growing up with these programs in the 50’s and 60’s was great. No one was offended. It was fun. No one I know did something crazy watching this stuff. We all had cap guns and played Army and Cowboys. You probably can’t even buy a cap gun nowadays.
I'm sure there are millions of African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Latin Americans, Jews, people from the Middle East, etc., who would disagree with you that no one was offended. Just because people didn't do "something crazy" — like take up arms or rant and rave on street corners over racial stereotypes in children's cartoons — didn't mean they didn't find them demeaning and upsetting.

I watched song of the south
Online and unlike some people
I enjoyed it it was funny and cute
It was Not Racist or demeaning
To colored folk just a fun wholesome family film
Like all the other Disney films

I never heard any of my minority friends complaining. Mexican Americans and Black Americans.

During a time when many nonwhites were happy just to be allowed in the same schools, restaurants, theaters, stores, etc., without being spit on, beaten or lynched, I doubt being outspoken about racist representations in cartoons was a big priority, certainly not around other whites.

I quess where you lived at the time mattered. That stuff didn’t happen here.
That's all I'm trying to say. There are hundreds of millions of people in this country. Just because someone in your immediate circle didn't speak out about a cartoon being offensive doesn't mean it wasn't offensive to a great many people. There's a section in the "Song of the South" Wikipedia article on the controversy. Even African Americans were divided over it. Song of the South - Wikipedia

Has anybody heard anymore about Disney bundling HULU Live?
Just regular Hulu. Since the "standard" Hulu catalog is mostly made up of Disney properties (ie, almost all ABC, FOX, and Hulu originals) that's probably going to be the only product to make it in the bundle because they have more control over the costs.

The Live TV add-on involves contracts with numerous outside networks, and they're already bumping the price by $10/mo starting next month.

I am nearly 71, and I kind of agree with you, growing up in the 50s. The World to me was better, but not for all. But as a white kid growing up in small town America, it was a cool time to live. But there was a lot of injustice in those days. At the time, I never paid much attention to it, but looking back, there were many that had few rights.

I could say that I would love to have seen Duncan Renaldo play Zorro, but I simply mixed up my characters. :) Such is my age beginning to show! :)
I saw Zorro listed under Movies,and for my age showing also first movie in the theaters "Nikki Wild Dog of the North" I watched.I could not find when I searched Disney+,but I can buy it on Vudu in 480p,and I did.
