Walt Disney Cartoon Classics was two different series video tapes that altogether ran from 1983 to 1992. The first series of videos began in 1983 with Chip' N' Dale with Donald Duck and ended in 1986 with Silly Symphonies Animal Tales. The second series began its run in 1987 with Here's Mickey! and ended in 1992 with The Goofy World of Sports. Altogether, both series made for one of the longest-running lines of Disney home videos.

The original series proved so successful that, a year after its run began, it spawned a second video series, Cartoon Classics: Limited Gold Editions, featuring some of the most critically-acclaimed Disney shorts, many of them not featured in the original series. A DVD line released more than twenty years later, Walt Disney's Classic Cartoon Favorites, is presented similar to the original series.

First series (1983-1986)

The first series of Walt Disney Cartoon Classics spanned from 1983 to 1986, with each volume containing up to seven shorts.

Each video in this series began with a short intro sequence set to the opening credits music from Hooked Bear. Clips used in the intro sequence were from Pluto's Sweater, Mickey's Trailer, Hawaiian Holiday, Thru the Mirror, Donald's Diary, The Little Whirlwind, Scrooge McDuck and Money, Boat Builders, Donald's Golf Game, and Dragon Around.

Second series (1987-1992)

The second series spanned from 1987 to 1992. Unlike its predecessor, each VHS release only contained three or four shorts, though the Laserdisc releases would combine two VHS releases.

The intro sequence was redone for this series, using a rearrangement of the Hooked Bear opening music and a wider variety of clips. Here, the intro used clips from Orphan's Benefit, Cock o' the Walk, In the Bag, The Band Concert, Soup's On, Farmyard Symphony, Pluto's Blue Note, Three Little Pigs, On Ice, The Autograph Hound, Pluto's Heart Throb, Moving Day, Chips Ahoy, How to Be a Detective, Who Killed Cock Robin?, Mr. Duck Steps Out, Mickey's Birthday Party, and Old King Cole. (Ironically, most of these shorts were not included on any of the videos released in this collection.)

On each video, brief clips from other Disney shorts or animated episodes of the Walt Disney anthology series appeared between the featured cartoons. The clips were usually redubbed to provide segues into the next cartoon.
