Even though the "Walt Disney Christmas" LD was released round 1982, my copy was manufactured September 14, 1995.
95-991A2-01 I9140304
07-400B9-71 I9135758

Possibly it may have been a re-release with the 1984 FBI Warnings and "Walt Disney Home Video" logo instead of the early warnings and "Walt Disney Home Entertainment" logo.

"More Sport Goofy" 1983 LD has this:
168AS-A01 A5301 1A111285
KAME-2-A17 7D111737
The above one can't seem to give me the manufacturing date, but the bottom says it was July 11, 1988.

"The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Vol. 1" (1989) has these mint marks:
50-610A1-03 62F90588
50-610B1-04 63F90914
It tells me that it was manufactured September 1989, but it gives me September 62, 1989 on side 1 and September 63, 1989 on side 2. Those dates don't exist, but the volume was made in 1989.

"Disney's Sing Along Songs: Collection of All-Time Favorites" gives me these:
55-800A1-001 C0230082
55-800B1-001 C0230170
55-800C1-002 D0261103
07-400B1-058 D0190750
The first two sides say October 23, 1996. The video was really made in 1997.

6 is probably supposed to be 0.

This could be a manufacturing error since C is close to D.
