?Beginning in 1923, Disney?s Ink & Paint Department helped create classic animated films. Its artists brought life to countless memorable characters, including many iconic Disney villains,? read US Postal Service website.

The stamps were launched during the annual D23 Expo at Anaheim Convention Centre, California on Saturday.

In a statement, Brennan remarked, "The Postal Service is highlighting the Disney Villains and the pioneering spirit of the (Walt Disney Animation Studios') Ink and Paint Department that brought many of these characters to life."

"These stamps are our way of saying Disney Villains will forever entertain us and serve as a tribute Disney's artistry and storytelling skill."

In 2012, Disney joined with the US Postal Service and released stamps featuring characters from Finding Nemo, Toy Story and Monsters, Inc.
