Caravan Pictures was a film production company arm of Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group (formerly Buena Vista Motion Pictures Group), formed by Roger Birnbaum and Joe Roth. In 1998, Spyglass Entertainment replaced Caravan Pictures. Its films were released by Walt Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, and Hollywood Pictures.

The company became defunct after 1999 and was absorbed into Spyglass Entertainment. The Caravan Pictures logo is a man wearing a hat, carrying a bag, and walking down a road (both the image and the title are a nod to the film Sullivan's Travels, about a filmmaker who seeks to make more meaningful movies—he sets out on his travels on foot in a similar shot, and at the end of the movie describes life as a "cockeyed caravan"). After the end credits of Inspector Gadget (Caravan Pictures' final movie), the man walks down as usual, but this time, a copter pops out his hat (similar to Inspector Gadget) and he flies out of the picture. And at the beginning of The Jerky Boys: The Movie, the logo plays as usual, but an off-screen voice says, "Hey, silly Ah..." he whistles and continues saying "Yo, I'm talking to you, where the hey do you think you're going, Buddy?" And finally another off-screen voice says "Come back, Shane".
