Thanks, Matt.

This will be a blind buy for me.  My faith in Disney animated features has been shaken in recent years.  But, this seems like a return to earlier form...so I'll be giving it a try.  I just couldn't work up the desire to see it in the theater...but I've been looking forward to a spin at home. 

It is fun that Jim Cummings is involved in this film.  I didn't realize that. 

Glad to hear the home presentation is getting such high marks. 

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

I have only watched a little of the movie and it looks wonderful.  When watching "Magic in the Bayou", there are several excerpts from movies that have been released in HD, they show horrendous jaggies.  It's a very jarring effect when compared to the rest of this special feature.

I noticed that the 1-disc BD doesn't mention the commentary track on the cover, but the DVD edition and the combo pack do.  It's not left off the 1-disc, is it?

I noticed this too. It seems like a flagging error when inserting the original footage and actually makes the footage look worse than SD.
