Walt Disney LaserDisc Announcement Sheet

Released during the Summer of 1982, Walt Disney Home Video enters the LaserDisc market with the following collection of 10 titles. These initial group follows a pricing structure of $34.95 for single discs and $44.95 for double discs, making them among the more pricey offerings on the format at that time.

All titles presented here were full-frame transfers with analog sound. The Black Hole and Pete's Dragon offered Stereo with CX-noise-reduction. All copies examined from this original press run were manufactured at the Kofu, Japan disc replication plant.

Disney first found a home on LaserDisc through its licensing agreement with MCA DiscoVision. DiscoVision had the feature film Kidnapped from Disney, as well as a group of five episodes from The Wonderful World of Disney. Those episodes include: At Home with Donald Duck, The Adventures of Chip'n'Dale, On Vacation with Mickey Mouse and Friends, The Coyote's Lament, and Kids is Kids.

Walt Disney had what appeared to be a on and off relationship with LD. Not long after this first group of titles was out and with few additional releases produced, they disappear from LD's ranks for a time. IMAGE Entertainment later strikes a new agreement with Disney and titles return to LD.
