The fourth wave of Walt Disney Treasures was released December 7, 2004. This is the only wave that comes in white cases, and is the final wave that is packaged inside double-alpha keepcases.

Because of Roy E. Disney's temporary resignation from the studio at the time of the production of this wave, the side strap featuring his name was removed, and the certificates of authenticity featured with each set were altered to not include his name. Beginning with this wave, the back of the tin would not be printed onto the case, but rather included as a card stuck onto the tin.

Mickey Mouse in Black and White, Volume Two


This set covers the remaining Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts released in black and white.

175,000 sets produced.

Disc One

  • Bonus features
    • "Mickey Mania: Collecting Mickey Merchandise": Maltin visits Bernie Shine, collector extraordinaire. They discuss what makes Mickey so appealing, then Shine takes us on a tour of his vast amassing of Mickey memorabilia from all over the globe, most of it dating back to the 1920s and 30s.
    • "Mickey's Portrait Artist: John Hench": Maltin interviews famed Disney artist John Hench about Mickey. Hench was the man in charge of painting Mickey for his birthdays throughout the years.

Disc Two

  • Bonus Features
    • "Background Paintings": Backgrounds of the various cartoon shorts on this set
    • "Animation Drawings": Drawings of the same cartoons, animating and storyboard
    • "Mickey's Poster Archive": Posters for many of the shorts shown on this set
    • "Mickey Mouse Fully Covered": Various merchandise covers, such as books, magazines and records
    • "Mickey's Sunday Funnies": This section shows off the comic strips of the many Mickey adventures, complete with a biography of creator Floyd Gottfredson.
  • Notes
    • About two minutes into the short, The Castaway has a few seconds of footage missing. This was an error and not due to censorship as the scenes in question simply show a box washing ashore.
    • "Alternate background versions" of The Castaway and a short from the first volume, Pioneer Days, were originally said to be featured on this set, but were dropped for unknown reasons.

The Complete Pluto


This set covers the first half of Pluto's career.

110,000 sets produced.

Disc One

  • Bonus Features
    • The Life and Times of Pluto: An interesting but brief analysis of Pluto as a character. Maltin discusses the dog with current animator Andreas Deja, long-time animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, and animation historian John Canemaker.
    • Pluto 101: Maltin again meets with Deja, who speaks about the value of studying classic cartoon shorts to aid in his ability to animate successfully. He then takes Leonard to the drawing board, where he shows how to bring Pluto to life from just one circle, the way he did in a sequence for the 1990 featurette The Prince and the Pauper.

Disc Two

  • Bonus Features
    • Pluto's Picture Book: This is the second half of the Disneyland episode, A Story of Dogs, which was aired as part of a promotion for Lady and the Tramp (the making of which the first half of this episode covers). The second half of this episode talks about Disney's first canine star, using a picture book, from which Pluto leaps and into which Pluto looks while Walt narrates and we get a look at some of the highlights of Pluto's career.
    • Pluto's Pal Fergy: This is a mini-biography about "the man behind the mutt": Norman Ferguson, who helped bring the dog to life. This talks about Ferguson not only creating Pluto, but also some of the other things at Disney he did.
    • Galleries
      • Pluto On Paper: Several Pluto comic strips are shown, as are Pluto book and magazine covers. The comics are designed masterfully so one can actually read along frame by frame.
      • Pluto's Posters: Posters for many of the cartoons presented on this set are depicted.
      • Background Paintings: The backdrops for a small handful of the cartoons presented are shown.
      • Animation Drawings: A host of drawings, storyboard and otherwise, for the same small handful of cartoons as in the "Background Paintings" section.
