The Walt Disney Classics Collection (WDCC) is a series of collectible sculptures of Disney characters and scenes.

This set covers the second leg of Donald Duck's long career, starting from 1942 to 1946, covering World War II in the process. The Japanese, French, Italian and German releases of this set only contains 29 of the 32 shorts available on the American release. The shorts left off were Commando Duck, Der Fuhrer's Face and Donald's Crime. The omission of the first two shorts was most likely due to World War II propaganda against both nations as they were both enemy nations to the United States during the war, but the omission of the last one probably more due to mistake, as all versions of The Great Mouse Detective DVD include it. The Chronological Donald, Volume Two did not receive the beautiful restoration of Volume One. Prints are worn and the image quality is visibly worse than all earlier Disney Treasures Volumes.

Walt Disney Classics was a brand name used by Walt Disney Home Video on their American, Japanese, European and Australian home video releases of Disney animated features. The last title in the Classics line from 1984-1994 was The Fox and the Hound. With the release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, all the existing titles in the Classics line were replaced with the Masterpiece Collection line and the Classics line was cancelled in the United States and Canada. Cassette copies of the original Classics series became much sought-after, and are very popular with collectors, since most retailers had the first home video release for Disney animated features in their stores up to the time when the label was discontinued. Animated features and other films containing animation (such as Mary Poppins and Pete's Dragon) continued to be released under the "Walt Disney Classics" label and its foreign language equivalents until around 2007 throughout Europe, and "Walt Disney Meisterwerke", the German equivalent series, is still in operation as of 2010 through its broader "Special Collection" range.

This set contains all Silly Symphonies not released on the first volume in Wave One. Leonard Maltin mentions in the intro that the original title cards to most of these shorts are presumably lost, and therefore, new title cards had been recreated making a close approximation of how they originally looked. However, these title cards weren't used on the initial pressings of this set. Also, the cartoon The Night Before Christmas was an edited version, missing footage of toys resembling Amos 'n Andy. Replacement discs were initially issued which corrected the errors on the original copies. From the Disney website, people can call an 800# to request replacement copies. Unlike the first volume, this was never released in a Region 2 format.

Disney Fine Art is art portraying Disney Characters, painted by professional artists who are often animators, background artists, or production designers.

Disney Princess is a Walt Disney Company franchise, based on fictional characters who have been featured as part of the Disney character line-up. The members of the franchise are Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel. The franchise has released dolls, sing-along videos and a variety of other girls' products, apparel, home decor and a variety of toys featuring the Disney Princesses.
In early 1999, when Andy Mooney was hired by Disney's Consumer Products division to help combat dropping sales, the idea for the Disney Princess franchise was born. Soon after joining Disney, Mooney attended his first Disney on Ice show. While waiting in line, he found himself surrounded by young girls dressed as princesses. "They weren’t even Disney products. They were generic princess products", he mused. Soon after realizing the demand, the Disney Princess line was formed.
Despite limited advertising and no focus groups, the various Disney Princess items released became a huge success. Sales at Disney Consumer Products rose from $300 million in 2001 to $3 billion in 2006.
All the princesses are available for meet-n-greets in the Disneyland Resort

The Clock Cleaners short on this release is the edited version. During the 1990s, Donald Wildmon and the American Family Association persuaded Wal-Mart to discontinue the sale of the VHS tape "Cartoon Classics: Fun on the Job!" which contained the film. The reason for this was that during his argument with the main spring in the image to the left, Donald Duck allegedly shouts "F**k you!" yet in Clarence Nash's semi intelligible voice, he actually says "Says who?", which is made clear by the spring's reply - "Says I!" Additionally the Motion Picture Production Code, popularly known as the "Hays Code," adopted in 1930, would never have allowed the language in the first place.
Due to this controversy, when the cartoon was included on the Walt Disney Treasures DVD set Mickey Mouse in Living Color, Donald's line was redubbed with the line, "Awww, nuts.", originally said in On Ice. Although the DVD release of Have a Laugh!, Volume 2 contains the cartoon with the original line
Musical Memories was the name given to a series of collectable musical figurines that celebrated the Disney animated features. It was a limited edition collection released by mail-order in 1986. Each figurine was limited to 19,750. The figurines were chronologically mailed from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937 film) to Oliver & Company
Each figurine displayed an array of Disney characters from each film. Some depicted a certain scene while others were strictly abstract. Each figurine had a moving figure that was attached via a screw (or just loosely "sitting" on the moving musical movement).
There were 20 figurines released in the series. Here is the complete list.

The Walt Disney Treasures is a series of two-disc DVD sets of classic Disney works. They cover work from the studio's earliest days to their more recent work.

The Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection was a line of videos and DVDs released by The Walt Disney Company which ran from 2000 to 2001. It was preceded by Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection, which ran from 1994 to 1999. All titles were released in VHS and DVD formats, except the DVD version of Toy Story was released on October 17, 2000 in the Toy Story 2 Pack. With the October 9, 2001 VHS and DVD release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Gold Classic Collection was replaced with the new line of Platinum Editions.
Titles marked with an asterisk (*) were only released edited; Saludos Amigos had a paint-over to remove a cigarette from Goofy's mouth, Melody Time had a paint-over and cut to remove a cigarette from Pecos Bill's mouth, and Make Mine Music was only released with 9 of the original 10 animated shorts: The Martins and the Coys was cut for containing comic gunplay.
The Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck Cartoon Collections was a series of Disney videos showing off classic cartoon shorts released between 1936 and 1954. It was Disney's very first attempts at releasing its stable of Disney shorts to video, having been released in 1981, two years before Disney unveiled The Disney Channel and two years also before they released Walt Disney Cartoon Classics.
There were three videos released in all, each with six shorts. Each of the six shorts presented included two cartoons each starring Mickey Mouse, two each starring Pluto and two each starring Donald Duck. Interestingly, there were no cartoons that starred Goofy (the only time Goofy appeared in a cartoon was if he costarred alongside Mickey and/or Donald). Other patterns seemed to include at least one 1930s Mickey short each and one short each placing Donald opposite Chip 'n' Dale. Many of the presented shorts were reissued on later Disney releases on video and DVD.
Disney Fairies is a Disney franchise built around the character of Tinker Bell, whom Disney adapted in their 1953 animated film Peter Pan and subsequently adopted as a mascot for the company. In addition to the fictional fairy character created by J. M. Barrie, the franchise introduces many new characters, and expands substantially upon the limited information the author gave about the fairies and their home of Never Land. The characters are referred to within stories as "Never Fairies". The franchise includes children's books and other merchandise, a web site, a Tinker Bell film series, featuring the character and several of the Disney fairies as supporting characters.
In Barrie's 1902 novel The Little White Bird, in which he introduced the mythos of Peter Pan and the fairies, he wrote, "When the first baby laughed for the first time, his laugh broke into a million pieces, and they all went skipping about. That was the beginning of fairies." The Disney Fairies are based on a similar idea: every time a newborn baby laughs for the first time, that laugh travels out into the world, and those that make their way to Never Land turn into a Never fairy.
The fairies generally reside in

He had previously only appeared in the opening title sequence of The Mickey Mouse Club. The cartoon Bee on Guard is missing the last 5 seconds of footage for reasons unknown. Recently, Disney has started issuing replacement discs correcting this error.

Disney's American Legends is a direct-to-video release narrated by James Earl Jones and which features the following Walt Disney Feature Animation animated short subjects:
The compilation was released February 12, 2002.
Mike Pinsky, of DVD Verdict, reviewed the compilation saying, "If, as James Earl Jones says in the finale, the message of this film is to "look for the heroes around you and celebrate them," Disney's American Legends is an interesting, if half-hearted, attempt to carry out that advice." Kirby C. Holt, Toon Talk, reviewed the compilation saying, "Although the program definitely presents the shorts in descending order of quality, it ends on a high note with these inspirational words from James Earl Jones: "Look for the heroes around you and celebrate them ... you can find them in the past, in the present, even in the mirror."
