I started to watch it last night and immediately you can tell it's an '80's film - it has that stilted rotoscoped look that Bakshi films and 'Heavy Metal' featured.

Default disappointing

I usually praise Disney with their blu-rays but this is not one of them the transfer is subpar, their is nothing new with the special features as a matter of fact the 20th anniversary edition has the same exact thing which is really disappointing being one of the first movies I ever saw in a theater when it came out in 1988.

I don't know what can be done to ever make Oliver and Co. look good -- like Mouse Detective, it is what it is.

I watched this disc yesterday and actually was more surprised by the poor reviews. I think it looked far better than I was expecting. Not to say there are no issues with the transfer but compared to The Sword in the Stone I can't complain about Oliver & Company too much. I did see the theatrical re-release back in 96. It was nice to see the original Trailer and a TV spot along with the re-release trailer on the BLU.
Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! These are becoming endangered and should be kept intact. They are part of film history.

Is this anything like Fox and the Hound's video quality? I hope not.

I kind of like rotoscoping like in Bakshi's films and Heavy Metal, but this was done by early CGI on some parts, hell even Great Mouse Detective used it and so did Little Mermaid.

Anway i thought the coloring was vibrant and the sound was quite good on the BD.

I have not seen Oliver and Company since I was a kid, how well does it hold up?

Ha ha. (Emphasis mine). What a masterstroke from Disney! They eff up Sword in the Stone beyond belief so they get a free pass on everything else from now on I'm sure we'll be hearing "At least it's not as bad as Sword in the Stone" in every discussion of future Disney releases until the end of time. Ingenious!

Watched this last night for the very first time and enjoyed it immensely.

The highlight, though, was what the narrator said on the vintage 1988 making-of doc: "As remarkable as they are, don't look for computers to replace human animators at Disney..." Biggest laugh I've had in a long time.

Except Disney did not use rotoscoping.

Thick black outlines does not equal rotoscoping.

If you look at the list of animators that worked on the film, many are top flight crew who worked on the renaissance films.

Cool, I hope it is good as I remembered

At that time, before Pixar had blown a hole in the animated world, it's understandable that someone would think that way. Hand-drawn was the way it had always been... just like how I'm sure some people thought MP3 players would never replace good ol' CD players, or Blu-ray for DVD...

I think sometimes it is hard to grasp what the future of technology holds when you are not part of a company that is pioneering that innovation. In this case, they were working in Disney's animation studio, way before Pixar had made their splash with computer animation.

Finally getting around to watching this for the first time tonight, transfer is tolerable, though I was sufficiently grossed out by the static menu that was a composite of several pieces of art. Like, how hard is it to put together a decent title screen??

And to think the previous DVD has a very similar menu, only animated.
