Before we talk about the history of Disney Classics and TV, we have to go back to 1944. It was World War II and Disney needed to make up for the box office failures of Pinocchio and Fantasia overseas. To make up for this, Disney decided to re-release Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs back into theaters to give people a chance to see the film in theaters again; whether it's people who have never seen it, or people who wanted to see the film again. Nonetheless, the 1944 re-release of Snow White made a lot of money and set forward a tradition of re-releasing the Disney classics every ten years.
This blog is intended to document the many retro home media releases and current media releases that I have. Whether it's VHS, Laserdisc, DVD, or Blu-Ray. :)
