Japan's Disney Stamps - Part 1

I'm usually pretty lazy on the weekends, this one included, but that's because I've been on the go a fair bit lately.

In honor of my friend Vinnie, who was at one time an avid stamp collector - among many other things - I thought I would present some cool Japanese stamps... issued by Japan Post and Walt Disney.

What I find annoying, however, is that there's no identification on the stamps as to just who you are licking. I know most of them, but some are drawn in such a manner that I'm just not sure at all. 

2012
(L-R, Top to Bottom): Tinkerbell; Mickey Mouse; Minnie Mouse; Bambi; Pinocchio; Snow White; Pluto; Ariel; Stitch; and The Three Little Pigs.
Winnie the Pooh; Piglet; Alice; Donald Duck; Daisy Duck; Cinderella; Dumbo; Molly; Goofy; 101 Dalmatians - or at least a couple of them.

2013
Left to Right and Top to Bottom: Winnie; Winnie; Winnie; Tigger; Winnie; Tigger; Piglet; Eeyore; Winnie; Winnie The Pooh
Left to Right and Top to Bottom: Winnie and Eeyore; Winnie; Winnie; Tigger; Tigger and Winnie; Winnie; Eeyore; Winnie; Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and Winnie; and Piglet and Winnie The Pooh. My gawrsh... where's Christopher Robbin, Roo, Kanga, Owl and Rabbit?  Tska-tska.
Left Sheet: Clockwise from Left: Tinkerbell; Winnie The Pooh; Alice; Oswald The Lucky Rabbit - seriously, I know the character which is why I have the name here, but who else knows of him in the 21st century?!; Wood & Buzz Lightyear; Dumbo; (guessing) Snow White, Rapunzel and Cinderella; James P. Sullivan and Mike Wazowski; and Marie; (Center in balloon basket): Pluto, Goofy (aka Dippy Dawg), Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Daisy Duck. RIGHT SHEET: L-R, Top to Bottom: Mickey Mouse; Minnie Mouse; Donald Duck; Daisy Duck; Tinkerbell; Marie - where's the rest of the Aristokittens (Berlioz and Toulouse) or their mom Duchess, or Lady & the Tramp?!; Woody & Buzz Lightyear; Lightning McQueen in drag or one of Mia and Tia; Winnie the Pooh; Alice.
2015
Top to bottom, left to right: Princess Aurora (?), Princess Aurora (?); Cinderella, Cinderella, Snow White, Snow White, Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, Princess Jasmine.
I'm going to leave it at this for now, because, gosh darn it, there are far too many to do in one day. Sorry. I'll get back to it!

Besides, it frustrates me to know end when I can't figure out a character or get a high enough resolution image to see it!

Kanpai,
Andrew Joseph
