Walt Disney Home Entertainment (2001-A)

Ideas for Walt Disney films on home video.

1st Generation MoviesEdit

The Aristocats (February 22, 1983)Edit

As you can see, within the 24 animated features there were from the Walt Disney Company in the early 1980s, only five of them were released in VHS back then -- Dumbo (1941), The Three Caballeros (1944), Fun and Fancy Free (1947), Alice in Wonderland (1951), and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977). If The Aristocats ever became the sixth animated film to get released on VHS this early, it easily would have retained its original Buena Vista logo from when the film itself came out in 1970.

This VHS would contain:

Video Release date
1 Blue warning screens 1979-1980
2 Walt Disney Home Entertainment logo December 1978
3 The Aristocats December 1970
4 Walt Disney and You October 1982

And of course, this 1983 VHS of The Aristocats would have been discontinued in 1984 along with the other five animated films.

Song of the South (October 6, 1987)Edit

Released after the last theatrical release of Song of the South, which was on November 21, 1986, this would have been Version 1.0 of the VHS. It would contain:

Video Release date
1 Red warning screens October 1984
2 Walt Disney Home Video logo August 1986
3 Song of the South November 1946

The Buena Vista logo would not be there, much like most of the Walt Disney Classics films from 1984 to 1991.

Of course, there was a Version 2.0 of the video designed only for promotional use by the Walt Disney Company itself. This video dates back at least to 1995. A clip compilation of this video was posted to YouTube on August 27, 2013.

2nd Generation MoviesEdit

Oliver & Company (November 7, 2000)Edit

Video Creation date
1 Blue warning screens April 2000
2 Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection logo March 2000
3 Video preview for Fantasia 2000 October 2000
4 Promo for Disney Videos October 2000
5 Promo for Disney's Home for the Holidays Collection October 2000
6 Feature Presentation December 1999
7 Full Screen Format Disclaimer June 2000
8 THX logo August 1995
9 Oliver & Company (re-issue) March 1996

The Sword in the Stone, Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Pete's Dragon obviously would have also used these same previews if they ever got released on this date.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (December 5, 2000)Edit

Video Creation date
1 Blue warning screens April 2000
2 Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection logo March 2000
3 Video preview for Dinosaur August 2000
4 Trailer for Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure November 2000
5 Promo for the Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection November 2000
6 Feature Presentation December 1999
7 Full Screen Format Disclaimer June 2000
8 THX logo August 1995
9 The Hunchback of Notre Dame June 1996
10 Trailer for The Hunchback of Notre Dame II November 2000

If this tape had been released on time, The Hunchback of Notre Dame II most likely would have been released on August 28, 2001 as one of the first third-generation videos from Walt Disney Home Entertainment, after Recess: School's Out.

Pocahontas (June 5, 2001)Edit

Almost like the 2000 DVD, but with some differences.

Chapters 28
Aspect ratio 1.66:1 (Letterbox)
Disc format Single Side, Dual Layer
Audio English (Dolby Digital 5.1)
Subtitles
  • English SDH (from the original DVD)
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • Chinese
  • Korean
  • Thai
Region code 1, 3, 4 (NTSC)
Bonus material
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • "The Making of Pocahontas"
  • Music Videos:
    • "If I Never Knew You" by Joe Secada and Shanice
    • "Colors of the Wind" by Vanessa Williams

This DVD only has one audio track for the film and no opening previews due to the morbidly huge video bitrate of the film.

So Dear to My Heart ​(June 5, 2001)Edit

If this Gold Classic Collection DVD had been released on time, it probably would have been the last 2nd generation Walt Disney Home Video title, after The Emperor's New Groove.
