Special Edition DVD Cameos

Numerous characters that did not make cameos in the film made a few on the menus of the Special Edition DVD.

Note: Most can be seen in the second disc.

(*) Denotes anachronisms; these characters (or, in the cases of characters such as Tinker Bell and Marvin the Martian, the animated versions of them that appear in the film) were created or adapted to cartoons after 1947. But as screenplay writer Peter S. Seaman said, "The aim was entertainment, not animation history." It also has been argued that the characters may have "existed" in the Toon world before being "discovered" and featured in real productions.
