List of Walt Disney Home Video "Neon Mickey" releases

From Home Video

The original Walt Disney Home Video logos included a reflection of a Mickey Mouse animatronic previously used as a graphic for Mickey Mouse's 50th birthday, with a constantly changing color scheme. The first version of the logo first appeared in 1978 on MCA Discovision (later MCA Videodisc)-era releases and was utilized internationally until 1981 and in North America until 1984. On the second version of the logo, the yellow text, "Walt Disney Home Entertainment" was replaced with "Walt Disney HOME VIDEO"; this version only appeared on international releases from 1981-1983. The third version of the logo had the same text as the second one, except this version has shadow outlines underneath the text and the text itself is now light orange; this version first appeared in 1983 on international releases and 1984 on North American releases, making this version the second and only other version of the logo on North American releases.

March 1980 (The first 13 titles)[edit]

The first 13 Walt Disney Home Video VHS releases were released for rental on March 4, 1980, when Disney was working with Fotomat to get into the video business. They were later released for sale nationwide in addition to rental on September 1980.
