Fantasia's last theatrical re-release occurred on October 5, 1990 after undergoing a restoration process. It began printing on VHS in July 1991. When advertised on television in November and December 1991, the commercial for the Fantasia VHS contained the gold Walt Disney Home Video logo for the first time ever. The video sold over 14 million copies through 1992, and was never released on VHS again after that.
One day after its initial VHS release, a documentary called "Fantasia: The Creation of a Disney Classic" aired on the Disney Channel since then.
