    I bet the vast majority of Disney BD released get shoved into a $60 BD player and watched on a 26" Dynex in perpetual Vivid...

    I get the point. I'm just saying "Disney buyers en masse" don't...nor care...to know better.

    How is something like this acceptable or unnoticeable?

    This isn't a particularly active scene... and look at how much erasing happened! The characters' outlines are just gone, and check out the smudged eyes. This isn't aping the look of "computer animation" in the least. It's just vandalism.

    I'll stay out of this cause I see nothing wrong with that image, but I have zero frame of reference.

    Compare this to Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore. The version on the Blu-ray of Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh looks exactly as it's supposed to without looking eerily unnatural.

    I am still glad I ordered even though Walmart may sell it or BB at a cheaper rate. The bonus features is what I want. Pluto and Chip and Dale have always been my favorite Disney Christmas cartoon.

    It's pretty inexcusable for a Blu-Ray to look worse than a DVD from almost ten years ago. And to give Disney a free pass for this kind of thing (when a live-action release would be raked over the coals for it) doesn't speak well for one's objectivity.

    There's no way that this is 5 stars. Grabbed from the "other" site.
