Pre-1989 Animated Disney Films Re-Releases of the 80's and 90's
« on: September 29, 2013, 08:16:41 pm »
Disney has made alot of timeless animation films and several underrated ones too, I want to share to you their re-releases from the 80's and 90's. The main reason I'm doing this is because since this is interesting to talk about. During the 80's and 90's, Disney kept continuing to re-release their classic animated films from the canon series in the big screen and were never released onto home video until then. This will only be about the pre-1989 Animated Disney Films (from Snow White to Oliver and Company) before the Disney Renaissance era came in starting with The Little Mermaid in 1989.

1980's
1980
  • Lady and the Tramp
  • The Aristocats

1981 - The Fox and the Hound
  • Cinderella

1982
  • Fantasia (Re-Recorded Soundtrack, Narrated By Hugh Douglas)
  • Bambi
  • Peter Pan
  • Robin Hood

1983
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
  • The Sword in the Stone (Played with "Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore")
  • The Rescuers (Played With "Mickey's Christmas Carol")

1984
  • Pinocchio
  • The Jungle Book

1985 - The Black Cauldron
  • Fantasia (Re-Recorded Soundtrack, Narrated By Tim Matheson)
  • 101 Dalmatians

1986 - The Great Mouse Detective
  • Lady and the Tramp
  • Sleeping Beauty

1987
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (50th Anniversary Release)
  • Cinderella
  • The Aristocats

1988 - Oliver & Company
  • Bambi
  • The Fox and the Hound

1989 - The Little Mermaid
  • Peter Pan
  • The Rescuers

1990's
1990 - The Rescuers Down Under
  • Fantasia (Remastered 50th Anniversary Release)
  • The Jungle Book

1991 - Beauty and the Beast
  • 101 Dalmatians
  • The Great Mouse Detective (Retitled "The Adventures of The Great Mouse Detective")

1992 - Aladdin
  • Pinocchio (Remastered)

1993
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Remastered)
  • Sleeping Beauty

1994 - The Lion King
  • NONE

1995 - Pocahontas
  • Sleeping Beauty (Selected Theaters)

1996 - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  • Oliver & Company

The reason why Disney kept re-releasing their classic films in theaters for 2 decades is because they were the foundation upon which the Disney company was built. Every time they were re-released to theaters (on a roughly seven-year cycle), they earned money like new releases and it was felt that allowing them on video or on television could end their lives as theatrical releases. But of course the only 2 exception are both Dumbo and Alice in Wonderland due to that they were shown on TV very early in the 50's on the Disneyland show in shortened edited versions before shown completely years later. The other 3 exceptions are The Three Caballeros, Fun and Fancy Free, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

Here's a list of Disney films that first time came out on home video:
1980's
  • Robin Hood - 1984
  • Pinocchio - 1985
  • The Sword in the Stone and Sleeping Beauty - 1986
  • Lady and the Tramp - 1987
  • Cinderella - 1988
  • Bambi - 1989

1990's
  • Peter Pan - 1990
  • The Jungle Book, and Fantasia - 1991
  • 101 Dalmatians, The Great Mouse Detective, The Rescuers, and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (Laserdisc only) - 1992
  • Pinocchio (Remastered) - 1993
  • The Fox and the Hound and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Remastered) - 1994
  • The Aristocats, and Saludos Amigos (with The Three Caballeros, Laserdisc only) - 1995
  • Oliver & Company - 1996
  • NONE - 1997
  • Melody Time, and The Black Cauldron - 1998
  • The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad - 1999

I'm not just a fan of classic golden age animation, I'm also a fan of video games, anime, and modern animation (both 2D and CGI animation).

I believe Song of the South was re-released in 1986, unless you are only counting fully-animated Disney features.
I love classic cartoons!

Sleeping Beauty" was rereleased on home video in 1997 on vhs and laserdisc with a 16 min documentary.  Also the remastered widescreen (Technorama 70) version has it's own home video release as well.  Interesting fact: The widescreen  (Technorama 70) Version of "Sleeping Beauty" has not been on video format since 1986 utill 1997  hope that helps  :)

Not counting the half live-action animated Disney films, only full animated Disney films from the canon from 1937 to 1988.

I'm not including their home video re-releases since there are too many to put in this topic. But I don't mind you guys putting in replies of their home video re-releases.
