Walt Disney Classics (1984-1994)[edit]

Disney launched the Black Diamond Classics line in 1984 to release their animated films on home video under this line. Before resigning, then-current Disney CEO, Ron Miller, had plans to release their animated classics on home video. The older Disney executives still believed that releasing their animated films on home video would be a little bit risky, despite having released Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland, Fun and Fancy Free, and The Three Caballeros on home video around the early 1980s. The "untouchable" Disney Classics would usually be re-released in theaters around 7-10 years. And the executives thought that if they had the film on videocassette already, they would not go to the movie theater to see it anymore. Plus, it would gamble away from future theatrical revenue.

But by 1984, Walt Disney Home Video was getting increasingly popular, so they decided to release Robin Hood on home video to begin their new Classics line. It was chosen because Robin Hood wasn't one of the more popular Disney animated classics at the time, as evidenced by a 1982 theatrical reissue not doing well at the box office, so it wouldn't be too much of a risk to release it on home video. Robin Hood was released with a suggested retail price of $79.95 on VHS and Betamax and $34.95 on Laserdisc. The tape was also part of Disney's wrap and ready-to-give promotion, since it was released a few weeks before Christmas Day. The release of Robin Hood was a small success, eventually becoming one of the best-selling home video titles in 1984.

Walt Disney Mini-Classics (1988-1993)[edit]

Disney launched the Mini-Classics line in May 1988 to release their animated featurettes on home video under this line. Around that time, the company had come up with jumbo packages of releases for the little folks to view during upcoming vacations and summer breaks. With Disney, it was more than price or wrapping--the distinctive and inimitable animation.

Walt Disney Film Classics (1992-1998)[edit]

Walt Disney Film Classics was a video line of family live-action films that ran under the Walt Disney Home Video label from 1992 to 1998. Until 1993, it was originally known as the Walt Disney Studio Film Collection. During fall 1994, it was known as the Walt Disney Family Film Collection. It became known as the Walt Disney Film Classics in 1997.

Disney's Favorite Stories (1994-1996)[edit]

Three months and a week after Disney discontinued the Mini-Classics series, they launched a similar series of featurettes on January 10, 1994, called Favorite Stories. Although each featurette runs about 25-40 minutes, this series only included fairytale featurettes and fairytale short subjects and does not include the Winnie the Pooh featurettes, as those were released in the Winnie the Pooh banner.
