* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' has for the longest time seen nothing but these types of releases. The Sony Wonder [=DVDs=] (many of which were "souped-up" versions of Random House's videotapes) had no sorts of special features, unless you count the "Kid-Friendly Instant Play" (read: the DVD menu appears after the program is over) and the [[MontageEndsTheVHS closing promos and funding credits]]. While {{Funimation}}'s "Our Time" issues and the later [=WGBH=]/[=PBS=] self-releases have a little more content (more trailers and "activities") they're still quite barebones. This is especially infuriating because, with the exceptions of seasons 10 and 11, ''Arthur'' has been on the air since 1996 and ''still'' hasn't received proper season releases (except for the United Kingdom).

* If you are Lucky enough to own a Dvd created by Creator/{{Studio 100}} including Bonus Features, expect it to be a music video of the corresponding movie or tv series. An exception is the K3 Loves You Dvd, which includes a music video and a complete documentary about the new K3 formation.

* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' is notorious for this. First is the barest Japanese release, then the American release, which has a few more bits, and the European one, usually has a few more changes too. Then the ''[[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition Final Mix]]'' goes out in Japan, [[NoExportForYou and ONLY in Japan]]. This one can be explained by Sony of America's policy on not rereleasing games for the same console unless there's a minimum percentage of new content (one wonders what low, spooky voodoo is used to determine that percentage). When the first 2 games got HD remasters on [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 PS3]], America finally got the final mix versions.

** When [[WesternAnimation/SpiderMan1967 the 1960s]] ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' animated series was released on DVD in the United States (around the time ''Film/SpiderMan2'' was released to theaters), it only got all 52 episodes and an introduction by Creator/StanLee. No commentaries, no commercials, no behind-the-scenes featurettes, nothing. Still, the fact that it got any bonus features at all feels like more than one could say for Buena Vista's barren ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' [=DVDs=], and the fact that it contained every episode feels like more than one could say for their single-disc releases of [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries the 1990s]] ''Spider-Man'' animated series.

* Zig-zagged with ''Disney/AGoofyMovie''. The US 2000 release was full-screen and some bonus features (including a ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' episode without its opening sequence, a trivia game, a storybook, an episode of Disneyland anthology series from 1955 focusing on Goofy, the fullscreen trailer and the "Disney's Mambo No. 5" music video), while the 1999 European release despite not having any bonus features (like many Disney movies released by Warner Home Video at the time) features the movie in its original widescreen ratio and seven additional language tracks besides the original English (depending on country those were German, Spanish (Spain), Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and Portuguese (European) or French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Czech, Hungarian and Hebrew).

* Creator/MangaEntertainment decided to release the first ten Manga/OnePiece movies in the UK in 2014, even though only two had been dubbed. While the already dubbed Anime/OnePieceFilmStrongWorld was released individually as a full priced DVD and Blu-ray (with extras), movies 1-9 would be released as inexpensive 3-pack [=DVDs=]. ''Episode of Alabasta'' later got an individual DVD/Blu-ray release too, as it had also been dubbed. [[TropesAreNotBad This is currently the only English-language release of the other eight One Piece movies]].

** The Daily Mail did this with a series of card sleeve reissues of various 70s & 80s CD albums years ago, and [[Music/Prince}} seized the opportunity to get two of his new albums pressed up by them too.

* The UK recently saw the first three Pokemon movies re-released on DVD........ with no option for the Japanese versions, the removal of the shorts at the beginning and literally zero extras. Even the cover artworks look barebones.
