Several months after the first five of Disney's animated features originally seen on VHS since the early 1980s were discontinued in 1984, an entirely new brand called the Walt Disney Classics was established. Since then, any further of Disney's animated features were often released under this brand, and were only available for a limited time each, usually about half a year to as much as up to three years.
