They mention the edits off hand- but think they're confused about which edits are which:

There's a lot of controversy over this DVD release, and it really surprises me seeing as how this version of Roger Rabbit is the same one that was released on home video and DVD in the past. What people are up in arms about are a few frames of animation here in there that were edited out of the film after the first Laserdisc release, but before the first VHS release.

Unless you own the very first Laserdisc release, there is no way to get the original theatrical version of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, so to pass up this set due to a couple missing frames of animation is stupid. Very stupid. I don't know about you, but I don't want my movies frame-by-frame.


I think this seems to refer to the "jessica's undwear" frames (which were edited before video release), rather than the changes to the Baby Herman scene (which appeared on the LD and VHS releases in tact).

I'm wondering if this scene is once again altered on the DVD release. I don't know if I care about the jessica thing (always thought it was a color mistake anyway)-- but the baby herman thing always irked me.

The disc sounds great and the changes made to the film really don't change how much I enjoy it. So it's a must-buy for me.

Vince, IIRC a friend of mine got a look at this disc during its production process and said the baby pointing was in, but I would still call that tenative since it's my memory of his word about a partially unfinished product.

I'm glad the shorts are anamorphic and in 5.1 to boot! This can't arrive fast enough... Zemeckis rules! Posted Image

Hi,

here's a little warning for all you Canadian customers. Roger Rabbit Vista will apparently be the first Vista Series DVD release that has a bilingual packaging in Canada. Posted Image
Here's a picture I received on a flyer with my latest order from DVD Soon:

The picture was pretty small, so the quality isn't that great but it's clearly bilingual.

Cheers,
Chris

dvdmg.com's review is claiming that the Baby Herman edit has been restored for the new DVD.

If the Baby Herman gag is restored then I'm in! Ah hell, I'm probably in even if it isn't, but definitely in if it is!

I'm not quite sure what he is trying to say here... Is he saying he actually wants frames cut out from each and every film?
