Disney knows when it has a good Cinderella story. First, the company announced that lead characters from its megahit “Frozen” would be woven into the story line on “Once Upon a Time,” which airs on the Disney-owned ABC network. Now it’s dedicating an hour of prime time to “The Story of ‘Frozen’: Making a Disney Animated Classic.” If this trend continues, look for Anna and Elsa to be the new hosts of “20/20.” 7 p.m. KSTP, Ch. 5

Our man in Havana

Take a trip down to Cuba in two specials, starting with the 2012 documentary “The Cuban Missile Crisis: Three Men Go to War,” followed by “The Fidel Castro Tapes,” which despite the title has no footage of the longtime dictator having romantic liaisons with Paris Hilton. Instead, it’s an all-new special that takes a look at the rise of the longtime dictator. 7 p.m. TPT, Ch. 2
