Twenty-three years ago today, Sotheby's auction book (from Wednesday, June 28, 1989) featured the art of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In this particular cel set up, several other Disney characters make an appearance including the marching Dwarfs and Snow White with the Old Witch. Asking price was $5000-$7000 (USD).

In 2001, the buildup and release of the Snow WhitePlatinum Edition DVD was a big deal. The movie had an all-new digital restoration. Also the two-disc set was
hosted by Roy E. Disney and loaded with extras. Over a million copies sold in the very first day!
In Australia, the DVD was part of the Walt Disney's Masterpiece Series.
