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.
