The Walt Disney Classics was a series of VHS releases of Disney animated features that spanned from 1984 to 1994, with its very first release being Robin Hood and the last being The Fox and the Hound, and VCD releases that spanned from 1998 to 2003. Many Disney animated features made their home video debuts through this series. It is often referred to by fans as the "Black Diamond" collection, referring to the shape of the black diamond-shaped "Classics" logo seen on the spine of each video's case and at the beginning of each tape. Although the series initially consisted entirely of older Disney animated features, the success of The Little Mermaid led to more recent films being released as part of the collection. UK Disney VHS had the 1986 WDHV logo but the WDC Diamond logo was never used there. However the surprising the 1992 distorted variant of Walt Disney Classics logo on the Pinocchio Special Edition 2003 UK VHS Is the High Pitched sped up.
