The first set to be issued was No. 4353, but throughout the 1950s, Marx would release the figures in several different packaging variations and combinations, plus about 13 additional characters were sold separately (Bambi, Goofy, Lady and the Tramp, etc.).

Collector Eric Johns provides us with the following: Playset Magazine included an article on the Disney Television Playhouse in its March/April 2012 issue. The first paragraph reads as follows:
With an actual air date still far-off, news that legendary animator Walt Disney was going to begin a television show called Walt Disney Presents came to Marx through the licensor. Not premiering on ABC television until late 1954, it promised a slate of many of Disney’s classic films and beloved characters. Presented with a spectacular opportunity to showcase such a wide range to a brand new audience of children, Marx developed the No. 4352 Walt Disney Television Playhouse. It was released in late 1953 in one of the most colorful and beautiful boxes Marx ever devised, a full color extravaganza promising a full range of figures and stories a kid will get to reenact.
In 1961, the same TV Playhouse figure molds would morph into the popular, yet smaller Disneykins.
Special thanks to Eric Johns of Marx Lane for supplying valuable information and for the use of his closeup images of the Snow White figures.
