Do you think musicians in the 1930s intended for the recordings they made to have noise, flutter, speed and pitch fluctuation? Of course not, but that was a limiting factor of the technology they had at the time. I'm sure the vast majority would have preferred better sounding reproduction of the instruments and voices recorded. Just like I'm sure the artists painting the cells would have loved for the original cells to be seen in the best quality possible in motion.

Animating hand painted cells in the time frame is no different.
There's a doco on the BLADE RUNNER blu ray where they talk about the matte paintings and that when shot on film the colour changes. They boasted that they employed an artist who knew exactly how to paint things in boosted colour so that it would read as the correct colour they wanted on film when shot - so they wouldn't have to colour correct in post.

I might be misremembering but I believe this is also covered in the BAMBI DVD docos that Walt instructed everyone to paint one level brighter to compensate for the loss in colour in the film transfer. And I might be really misremembering here but they also talk about how the grain gives second life in animating the images.

Bottom line: if you're not compensating for the way things look on film you're an amateur.

Holy crap ! I had no idea they went this far. I thought they just cleaned the images up (restore color, remove debris, dirt , scratches, etc). This is HORRIBLE...

The 35mm is actually more accurate in color for its time. Disney is now altering the color by trying to make their films more vibrant. I prefer the original myself. It's hideous that they are removing detail. I would like to see a true 1080p/blu-ray scan of these films with no alteration. That would be awesome.
