* The original ''Walt Disney "Black Diamond" Classics'' VHS/LaserDisc series was mostly Vanilla Edition, but it WAS Disney's first foray into releasing their animated classic library outside movie theaters, and remains one of their biggest (it's the only one of the animated film specialty lines to have its own page on The Other Wiki), and that didn't stop Disney including specials and bonuses on several releases. These tapes ARE actually sought after by collectors and were crucial in home media development, with two specific ''Classics'' cuts, one for ''Fantasia'', the other for ''Beauty and the Beast'', not getting another release well into The New 10's.

** The ''Limited Issue'' [=DVDs=] featured so few bonus features, Disney tried to pad out the "special features" boxes on the back covers by [[http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/ciu/06/04/2741225b9da0bad526eac010.L.jpg boasting]] that the [=DVDs=] have labels with "full color character artwork." This boast would become ironic when Disney started using gray and silver DVD labels for most of their movies. About half of the ''Limited Issues'' films were rebranded under the ''Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection'' within a year (most of the films in this line DID have extras), and the "Untouchables" in the ''Limited Issues'' that weren't (only one "Untouchable" from the ''Limited Issues'', ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' was repackaged in the ''Gold Classic Collection''; no other "Untouchable" is in that short-lived line) got a release down the road in the ''Walt Disney Platinum Edition'' series, which was '''loaded''' with bonus features.

Putting Disney together.
* The first Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon movies to come to [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Disney DVD]] did so in what was called the ''Limited Issue'' collection. The most packed entry, ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', contained nothing more than a partially-colored trailer and some music videos, while fans of the other movies released in this collection would have probably considered themselves lucky if they got so much as an old trailer. (However, almost all of these films would later get 2-Disc rereleases containing a more ample amount of bonus features.) ** The ''Limited Issue'' [=DVDs=] featured so few bonus features, Disney tried to pad out the "special features" boxes on the back covers by [[http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/ciu/06/04/2741225b9da0bad526eac010.L.jpg boasting]] that the [=DVDs=] have labels with "full color character artwork."

It should also be noted that ''The Rocketeer'' is but one of a large amount of live-action Disney movies that came to DVD with no bonus features. * ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' launched a new era of home entertainment for Creator/{{Pixar}}. Each of the preceding movies got 2-Disc Collector's Edition [=DVDs=] with hours of bonus features. By contrast, ''Cars'' got a DVD containing nothing more than three shorts, some deleted scenes, and a short interview with the director as bonus features. Nearly every Pixar movie onward received similarly lightweight platters on DVD. Fans would have to buy the Blu-Ray discs for more comprehensive extras. Eventually, ''Cars 2'' became Pixar's first movie to come to 3-D Blu-Ray. As a result, both the DVD ''and'' the Blu-Ray received paltry selections of bonus features, with consumers having to buy the 3-D version to get all the extras! Fortunately, ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' each have 2-D and 3-D Blu-Rays with identical or nearly-identical amounts of extras, giving this trend a quick death. * Creator/{{Disney}}'s thing now is to make most of the bonus features only available in the Blu-Ray and Digital Copy versions, making the [=DVDs=] vanilla or very close to it. It should be noted that Disney was Blu-Ray exclusive during the format war with HD-DVD, so that may have been a factor in their decision to push it so hard. The Digital Copies that come with extras likely do so to entertain the increasing amount of people who stopped buying movies on physical media. ** This trend sometimes gets inverted for 2-Movie Collection Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs, including only the two movies on the Blu-Ray, and a few bonus features on the enclosed DVD copies. Examples include ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''[=/=]''Kronk's New Groove'' and ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''[=/=]''Stitch Has a Glitch''.

* Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Phase Two movies almost always have drastically smaller amounts of Blu-Ray bonus features compared to Phase One pictures, apparently because Marvel planned to withhold certain extras for a box set of the whole phase--which includes a bonus disc containing ''166 minutes'' of exclusive extras. ''Film/{{The Avengers| 2012}}'', the first MCU Blu-Ray released through Disney instead of Paramount or Universal, also feels lacking in the bonus department, despite capping off Phase One. The [=DVDs=] for all phases have even less content, and no box sets. * Creator/{{Disney}} has started releasing Blu-Ray Discs of some of their least marketable live-action movies exclusively through the Disney Movie Club, without any bonus features (even those few that ''did'' have extras on their DVD releases underwent this treatment). * The first time ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' and ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' came to DVD, fans could decide between a "2-Pack" containing the movies and three shorts, or the 3-Disc "Ultimate Toy Box" that added audio commentaries and five hours of extras. When the movies became available individually, copies from the 2-Packs were used. * In the UK, the Blu-Ray release of ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' was only a single disc with only a small fraction of the features the US got. ** Made worse by a bit of (possibly) unintentional VeryFalseAdvertising. The UK's ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' Blu-Ray and DVD features a trailer for the ''Incredibles'' Blu-Ray, but uses the same trailer the US got, showing the American "2-Disc Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital Copy" cover and bragging that it contains a ton of bonus features when actually the UK Blu-Ray contains even less features than the original DVD release. * For some reason, the UK version of JurassicWorld 3D didn't include the 2D disc like the rest of the world did, the problem being that not only is the 3D disc locked to only play with 3D equipment, but it doesn't have any of the extras from the 2D disc. Universal did offer to send those who had complained a free 2D disc though.

* An aversion of this is ''Film/KillBill'' Vol 1 and 2. Surely a slamdunk to be released as a boxed set with lots of extras but, in fact, it never happened. Each movie was released separately. If you waited and waited and waited for the box set that never came out, then you were limited to finding the single releases (if you were lucky) in a bargin bin. * In the UK, the Blu-Ray release of ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' was only a single disc with only a small fraction of the features the US got. ** Made worse by a bit of (possibly) unintentional VeryFalseAdvertising.

* When a limited edition Blu-ray disc set of the first three ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' movies was confirmed for release for February 2016, it was revealed that the special features from the original DVD releases would be excluded from the set. In addition, it's been said that the Pikachu shorts would be left out of the set for rights issues. So what do we get from the set? The movies in 16:9 widescreen with a Stereo presentation of the 4Kids English track, and.....that's about it.
