The above photo of a Frozen VHS started making the rounds around the internet earlier this week, and took me back.
I’m sure one universal memory most people who grew up during the 1980’s or early 1990’s has is opening up one of those large plastic clamshell cases, popping a Disney animated film into the VHS player and waiting for the magic to begin. These days, reminiscing about those times must sound the same as when my father would tell me about the days before remote controls where he had to turn a dial on the television to change the channels. Okay, I’m getting old.
Had Disney actually produced a VHS version of Frozen? Was the movie that popular that the mouse house decided they could make enough money off the now niche market of primary VHS player owners?
