I have seen the Pooh adventures many times in different formats, as my kids were big fans. Concerning this release, I'll leave the technical details aside (since Ken has addressed them rather comprehensively in his review) and just say that the BD version was worth the wait. I was interested more in the overall effect, and was therefore pleased at the extent to which the extra detail, brightness, color, and enhanced sound added to the enjoyment of the experience. While watching, I thought how rare a presentation such as this must be in an era of escalating violence, explosions, and revenge to satisfy the appetite of spectacle-saturated youth. Nothing to see here but an increasingly rare story highlighting youthful innocence, wonderfully executed and produced. I am looking forward to seeing it again when the grandkids visit.

There is nothing wrong per se with removing some grain for animation imo. But what you need is a really nice 4K print to do it to the best of your ability. Animation that is intensely grainy is a serious distraction no matter how pure you want it to be. 4K grain is going to be even more distracting. You are literally going to be watching pinpoint grain swirls unless you use some DNR on animation. Now of course you have to treat films with respect. Only minor DNR can be applied to a bad master or a film that is inherently soft or to a process that doesn't bode well for mid to high amounts of it.

Clearly, films like Sword in the Stone were just bad masters and had too much DNR.

I also think this studio REALLY needs some quality control when it comes to aspect ratio. Seriously, which is it! It seems like for all but the later Robin Hood 1.66:1 seems the best choice. That is my opinion on seeing how cut up Sword and Jungle Book look. They went 1.66 for Aristo, Fox, and Pooh and they all look great in that ratio IMHO.

I just don't get this whole 1.75:1 thing. If it were true then we would be seeing all these films using it. Robin Hood doesn't look bad but then again that was '73, a far cry from the 60s releases. I'd really like more detail in how this aspect herp derp of the film restoration is decided on.

I saw a copy at my Walmart for 14.95, but the dvd next to it was 16.95. Weird. Either way it was a steal, but I didn't have any money on me to spend on a bluray

Received my copy from E Bay ($20) which was a fair price


Not sure if anybody noticed, but when you play Day For Eeyore, look at the voice credits,

Jim Cummings (Darkwing Duck, Pete, Tigger/Pooh), Tress Macneille (current voice of Chip from Chip and Dale) Aaron Spann (Josh of KH Dream Drop Distance) are listed with Ralph Wright (Eeyore) John Fiedler (Piglet), Paul Winchell (Tigger) and Hal Smith (Owl/Pooh)


Hal Smith voiced Pooh for Day For Eeyore, Welcome To Pooh Corner, Discover The Seasons and rotated with Jim Cummings during New Adventures Of Pooh


Kinda surprised to see Jim Cummings attach to a project that he didn't participate in,

is this is a mistake? cause I know Disney redubbed some of Many Adventures' scenes with the current Pooh actors... I listened to Jim's Pooh and Hal's Pooh voices but can't tell 'em apart.....

Regarding the aspect ratio, was the 77 Package film shown in widescreen in general? Why do you think Disney hasn't shown this in it's exact AR, would that pose any problems?

Yeah, it's a mistake. Hal Smith was Pooh here (and Jim Cummings was always Pooh for New Adventures). I'm not why it happened, but the opening credits were changed either around the time of or even before the 25th Anniversary DVD release of Many Adventures in 2002, and since the BD is sourced from the same master of that short (instead of the new restoration the "Mini Adventures" Day for Eeyore is sourced from), the error is carried over.

Here's where it gets really weird, though. The 1993 VHS release of Day for Eeyore ALSO has redone credits, although those retain the right cast members (just differently formatted credits). I took some screencaps of all three versions off of YouTube. The first one doesn't list a source but is clearly from the oldest version, so I'm guessing this reflects what was shown in theaters. Curiously, the second version from 1993 better matches the credits found in the original three shorts/Many Adventures film. The third one is the 2002 one that's been carried over since.

I am really mad because I have anticipated this release for a long time and I cannot even get my hands on it.

Do you have a target around you? From what I've read Target is one of the few stores to actually have the blu ray.

The Pooh movies have all seemed to have a much larger DVD print than Blu.
I had to order Winnie the Pooh because I couldn't find a Blu copy at any stores in my area. Since then, I still don't think I've seen any on shelves. I picked up The Tigger Movie from DMC for the same reason, I've only seen a couple copies of it on shelves since.

Question

Sorry to bring up the digital copy issue again, but just wanted to ask as something just occurred to me:

As we already know, when the equivalent Canadian release of a title include a digital copy like in the US release that means that the US one will be supported by iTunes as Amazon and Vudu codes aren't being supported in Canada.

Now, I remember reading here a while back that the Canadian DMC offered "The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh" as a special limited early release, with a digital copy. How exactly does it work without iTunes? Could it be that iTunes is supported on the Canadian version?

Doesn't blow as much as iTunes.

Were the shorts individually shown in widescreen?

What about when the film was packaged for 1977, was it shown in widescreen?



What other Disney movies or shorts were shown in widescreen but made fullscreen for home media?
