Give The People What They Want
If they truly go away my guess is that they'll come back eventually but there are rumblings that Disney is going to stop (re)-releasing all of the animated shorts that they have been putting out on DVD over the years.
"Sources indicate that the DVDs are being stopped to make way for new projects from the company, and not because of a lack of public interest. Many fans have already started writing Disney to complain, but it remains to be seen if the studio will finish what it started." Nice.
