* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The 50th anniversary edition of ''Fantasia'' has only been released '''ONCE''', on VHS and Laserdisc as part of the ''[[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Walt Disney Classics]]'' series, and after Roy E. Disney and Jeffrey Katzenberg were adamant against a video version for a while; the ''Classics'' version of ''Fantasia'' is also its sole major VHS release, so if someone wants to see the "roadshow" version that has the last traces of Deems Taylor's voice, they will need to obtain this video (it was also on the street for a short time, too).
** This applies to the documentary ''Fantasia: The Making Of A Masterpiece'' on a stronger level; no other version other than a 1991 VHS with the ''Classics'' logo is known to exist at this time.
* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: The "Black Diamond" ''Classics'' VHS of ''Fantasia'' had an alternate box set that, in addition to the video with the film, also contained a VHS with the documentary ''Fantasia: The Making Of A Masterpiece'' (as of 2016, it's not widely known if there is another version of this doc), and the film's soundtrack on a two-[[UsefulNotes/CompactDisc CD]] package among other things.

* At 2 Hours and 4 Minutes (124 minutes) long, this is the longest Animated Disney Classic; the 50th anniversary edition released in theaters in 1990 and on video as part of the ''[[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Walt Disney Classics]]'' series cut 4 minutes to make it 2 hours flat. The longest Disney movie ever is ''Film/TheHappiestMillionare'', which has various running times[[note]]Which are 2 Hours and 24 Minutes (144 Minutes), 2 hours and 42 minutes (162 minutes), and 2 Hours and 52 minutes (172 Minutes)[[/note]], but all of them make the film the longest film they've ever released.

* That ''Classics'' VHS release broke home media sales records when it came out for Thanksgiving 1991, which ironically also saw the debut of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' in the cinema circuit (''BATB'' would break ''Fantasia's'' record when it came to video under the ''Classics'' line the following year, with ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'s Classics'' VHS breaking ITS record, and ''Disney/TheLionKing'' and the original VHS release of ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' under the ''Masterpiece Collection'' breaking that record.

* Sorcerer Mickey was the mascot of Walt Disney Home Video for its first 15 years of operation. He originally appeared on the clamshell covers and tape labels of Disney videos, but a Walt Disney Home Video animation with him was made in 1986 and began appearing on tapes. That Sorcerer Mickey logo was remade into the second ''WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics'' logo, which opens the ''Fantasia'' VHS, and made Sorcerer Mickey the mascot of that line until it was closed in 1994 and replaced with the ''Masterpiece Collection''. The original logo became a secondary logo in 1995, but continued to run until 2006.

Added DiffLines:

* DisownedAdaptation: Creator/IgorStravinsky, the only composer who was still alive to see his music used in ''Fantasia'', was excited by the prospect of working with Creator/WaltDisney and having animation made to his music. Unfortunately, he was upset by the edits made to his score without his permission, and came to hate the finished product.

* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Sorcerer!]]: ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' players may or may not have this reaction upon seeing the "former Keyblade master" Yen Sid in the film he originally came from.

* ExecutiveMeddling: One of the most infamous examples of this was the ending of the ''Rite of Spring'' from the original Fantasia. The segment originally would have continued into the age of mammals and end with a scene where early humans dancing as they succeed in creating fire. Disney had this ending removed out of fear it would attract controversy from creationists, but this change did not go over well with Creator/IgorStravinsky, who wrote the number and is the sole composer of a ''Fantasia/Fantasia 2000'' number to be alive to see the film in theaters; he was tempted to sue Disney, but decided not to; the whole thing still turned Stravinsky off of animation for the rest of his life.
