* CreatorBacklash:
** Walt hated ''WesternAnimation/TheGoldenTouch'', so much so that just the mere mention of the cartoon's very name was strictly forbidden.
** Wilfred Jackson disliked the early Mickey Mouse short "The Castaway" and upon its failure vowed to never make another picture that didn't feel like a Disney film again.
** According to "Of Mice and Magic", some of the WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck staff grew to dislike the character and how formula driven his shorts became over time. One of the directors, veteran Jack Hannah (no relation to Hanna-Barbera) even complained "I got so damned tired of that duck's voice. I just could not stand having to work with it all the time." It should be noted, however, that Don's most formulaic period came ''precisely'' when Hannah took over as the sole director of the series and apparently made his life goal to fill the duck's filmography with repetitive stories. Really, count how many cartoons that pit Donald against vermin -where he's OutOfFocus and suffers from severe {{Flanderization}}- emerged on this time as opposed to the past. There were some nice exceptions here and there, especially at the beginning of Hannah's tenure, but for the most part the Duck owes much of his personality loss to these pictures.
** According to Neal Gabler in his book "Walt Disney and the Triumph of the American Imagination", Walt "absolutely hated the WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} cartoons, threatening constantly to terminate them before relenting, largely to provide work for his animators." It should be noted, however, that Gabler's book cites no source for such a claim.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: There are still a handful of classic Disney shorts that didn't make their way into the Walt Disney Treasures lineup, including two of Goofy's 60s shorts, ''Freewayphobia #1'' and ''Goofy's Freeway Troubles'' ("How to Ride a Horse" and "El Gaucho Goofy" from the 40s aren't counted here, as they was technically part of other features, the former as part of ''The Reluctant Dragon'' (and can be found intact on Walt Disney Treasures: Behind the Scenes At Walt Disney Studios) and the latter as part of ''Disney/SaludosAmigos''), Chip 'n Dale's three solo shorts (although they are available on VHS and some of them on DVD) and poor little "Susie the Little Blue Coupe" didn't get into the Disney Rarities set (although it has somehow made its way onto public domain [=DVDs=] like Bazooka Joes cartoons, as well as included on DVD releases of ''Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad'' and ''Film/TheLoveBug'' as extras and as part of a series of [=DVD=]s called "It's a Small World of Fun"). They have also only released a select few of the early Alice Comedies on the Disney Rarities and WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit sets, but many others are available via VCI and Inkwell Images DVD collections. Also, the obscure Disney short about "Menustration" hasn't been officially released, but has fallen into the public domain. Donald is also missing three shorts from the 1960s ("Donald's Fire Survival Plan", "Steel and America" and "Family Planning"), and two '60s oneshots "Scrooge [=McDuck=] and Money" and "WesternAnimation/ItsToughToBeABird" have also not received a release.
* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: Played annoyingly straight with the Walt Disney Treasures DVD sets. Disney has been doing this for decades. Remember the Limited Gold Editions series of videotapes from the 1980s? There were ''two'' sets of those.
* MissingEpisode: Several WesternAnimation/AliceComedies and WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit shorts aside, none of the sound or color shorts are lost--even all of the [[WesternAnimation/NewmanLaughOGrams Newman Laugh-O-Grams]], Disney's oldest cartoons, still exist. However, original prints of many of them containing their original title screens currently are lost and the WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse shorts ''When the Cat's Away'' and ''The Jazz Fool'' currently lack their opening music.
* OldShame: Director Wilfred Jackson disliked the early Mickey Mouse short "The Castaway", and from it's completion vowed to never again make another picture that didn't feel like a Disney cartoon, according to Literature/TheIllusionOfLife: Disney Animation.
