    Sounds great! I can't wait to get it.

    I like this coverart way better than that other one that was floating around here somewhere... although it was also pretty good.

    I don't know if this has been discussed before, but did anyone notice the censorship of Knickknack in the theaters? On the original version, the bikini girl (and also the mermaid from the end) were quite (ahem!) large breasted. So much so that it was obviously drummed up for laughs. Apparently with Knickknack's rerelease, Pixar has decided that this is too risque or distasteful for today's kids, and both characters now have noticeably more modest proportions. Hopefully the commentary on this short will give some insight into this change.

    This disc sounds so wonderful. I love all of Pixar's DVDs. I have the original A Bug's Life Collectors Edition 2-Disc, is there any good reason for me to buy the new one that came out a little while ago?

    Is it just me or does anyone else get annoyed at the separate 'Enthusiast' and 'Family Friendly' sections?

    Carl...

    Considering most of us will still be catching up on September's releases, I think I'm just going to take a week off!

    Either way, this looks like a wonderful set, and I'm going to be proud to have it on my shelf.

    The only part of hte enthusiast/family division I odn't likeis the implication that full screen is family friendly (although this is less of an issue with Pixar DVDs because htey reocmpose, but still). But the differently aimed supplements are great, no eveyrone wants the depth of info we do, this allows both groups to enjoy hte disc, those who want fluff pieces and DVD-ROM games and those who want to explore the making of, without it being confusing what's where.
