Alice in Wonderland

I have been trying to figure out what is up with The Classics releases of Disney's Alice in Wonderland. As fas as I have been able to determine, there are four different NTSC versions (excluding demo versions, DVS, ect.). The first is the slipcover version, the second is the clamshell version that says vhs at the bottom, the third is the regular version; which has one of the old-style paper labels, and the fourth is the same as the third; but with a painted-on label. The slipcover version is from 1986, and the version with the painted on label might be from 1991, the version with the paper laber is probably from 1987, and I have no clue about the one that says vhs at the bottom. I have been trying to figure out what is up with these releases, and having no luck. Anyone know what the deal is?

I've noticed that with Dumbo black Diamond as well...the 1986 prints are far different from the more common 1991 BD prints...

After a quick google image search I count 6 different cover arts and like 10 (or more) different fonts used for this movie. The two versions I own (slipcase and BD) are in storage so I couldn't look at those, but my friend has the Gold Collection edition which has no dates on it at all.

Did they also release this in the puffy black clamshell box format?  I've seen this format for Dumbo, Pinnochio, and Sword in the Stone, with the latter going for $50 and up on Ebay currently.  Never knew that particular release was so rare.

I have heard some copies of Dumbo and Sword in the Stone have the "Neon Mickey" Walt Disney Home Video logo, instead of the regular 1984-88 Black Diamond logo...these are considered early prints and I believe those are kinda scarce.
