* ''The Adventures of Hajji Baba'' is not available on DVD, Blu-Ray, or any streaming services in most of the world since it's limited VHS release from the late 80s and an out of print MGM DVD release in Spain. But it is occasionally shown on FXM Retro and TCM.

* If for some insane reason you want to watch the infamous ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' parody movie ''Ricky 1'', look hard. The DVD release of this movie by Televista is actually a bootleg, and VHS copies of this movie are obscenely hard to find, though copies have been known to turn up with an even lower price tag than is usual for a hard-to-find title. However, it is on [=YouTube=].

** ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth'', since its last theater reissue in 1986, has canonically become OldShame, so the only recordings you're likely to see are rips of scratchy, faded videocassettes or the Japanese [=LaserDisc=] release (possibly with Japanese subtitles on the songs in the case of the former). You can also find British VHS cassettes from when it was on sale in the UK, though it's less likely that A) you'll find one that's in good condition and B) you'll have something to play it on. Some people have seen a bootleg DVD of the film at video game stores that also sell [=DVDs=], typically with a white case and not much of a blurb on the back. It's available online somewhere if you look closely enough.

** ''Disney/TheLionKing'' also underwent some alterations for its IMAX rerelease and home video reissues. The most easily explainable concerns a sequence where Simba flops down onto some grass, which upon impact emitted dust particles that spelled "SFX" in the night sky. Some viewers [[TheProblemWithPenIsland saw the text as]] [[InnocentInnuendo a certain other word]] and decried Disney for what they perceived them to be [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar sneaking subliminal messages past the censors]]. The IMAX version removed the letters, and made many other changes (such as re-designing some crocodiles and birds in "I Just Can't To Be King", and re-animating the waterfalls in "Can You Feel the Love Tonight"). All later home media releases retained these modifications, meaning the only way to see the original scenes is through an original theatrical print or a 1995 Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection laserdisc. (The 1995 VHS WDMC print also includes the original scenes; but unlike the theatrical print and laserdisc, the VHS print is displayed in a PanAndScan format.)

** ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'''s original theatrical cut has only received an official home video release on the 1992 Walt Disney Classics laserdisc. The reissue 10 years later on VHS/DVD under the Platinum Edition series, which added the option to restore the CutSong "Human Again", lightened the colors to match the 2002 IMAX rerelease. Among other detractions, this made the Beast visible in shadow when he first appears (the original 1991 cut has the Beast completely concealed in the darkness until he has to reveal himself to Belle at the close of the first act). The Platinum Edition also worked some tweaks made for the IMAX version's soundtrack into both cuts (among other changes, the addition of the sound of the Beast destroying furniture after Belle leaves the castle). The Diamond Edition 2010 Blu-Ray and DVD undid the changes to the original cut's soundtrack, but used a darker version of the new color scheme instead of that from the premiere, and also suffered from a glitch that temporarily shows a bit of the extended version's animation in the "original" cut. The 3D version has also only come to home video only one time, as a 3D Blu-Ray[[labelnote:*]]Incidentally, this disc came closer than any other ''[=BatB=]'' DVD or BD did to matching the original colors. Since it didn't include the extended cut, it also didn't suffer from the glitch that plagued the other Diamond Edition releases.[[/labelnote]] included with some 2011 repackagings of the Diamond Edition combo pack.

** Likewise Muppet related, the direct-to-video MuppetClassicTheater has never been released on DVD, or any format since the initial VHS release (which is of course long out of print). It can be found on the Internet, though.
