So Dear to My Heart was one of the last Neon Mickey titles ever made in the mid-1980s. The video sold through at least 1987.

On the same date when The Rescuers was released (September 18, 1992), So Dear to My Heart was re-released on VHS. It was later re-packaged as part of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection in 1994 through 1996.

Synopsis

1986 VHS

There's no room in the county fair livestock arena for a non-pedigreed, mischievous black sheep like Danny. But don't tell that to his starry-eyed owner, Jerry Kincaid (Bobby Driscoll). Against incredible adversity, little Jerry is determined to see his misfit pet not only compete at the fair, but cart off the coveted blue ribbon as well! Combining masterful live-action with touches of classic Disney animation, this inspiring and endearing story weaves a simple lesson -- "it's what you do with what you got" -- into a colorful, charming story for young and old alike.

1992-1996 VHS

One of Walt Disney's most endearing classics, So Dear to My Heart combines live-action and animation to tell the heart-warming story of a young boy with big dreams and an even bigger imagination! Jeremiah (Bobby Driscoll) is the determined country boy who adopts a mischievous black lamb named Danny. While daydreaming of winning a blue ribbon at the County Fair, Jeremaih's scrapbook "comes to life" with delightful animated sequences which encourage him to follow his heart's desire. Featuring the Academy Award® nominated "Lavender Blue" (performed by Burl Ives), and an array of enjoyable songs for chilredn and adults, So Dear to My Heart is high-spirited, sentimental fun for the entire family!
