    Nate,
    There are four DVDs, each available in a different Kellog's cereal. The four titles are "The Thief and the Cobbler," "Babar," "Air Bud," and "Air Bud: Golden Reciever." All titles are full-frame. "The Thief and the Cobbler" is a pan-and-scan version, as the original aspect ratio is 2.40:1. I don't know about the others.
    And in case you know about the complex history of "The Thief and the Cobbler," the version offered here is the "Arabian Knights" version, just retitled to reflect the original version. Anyone know why they did that?

    There is nothing else on the Air Bud and Babar DVD's other than the movie. It basically loads with the warning and then asks you for english or french. Then it brings you to a scene selection screen where you can choose a scene or play it all.
    Because I had a little time tonight I just put together some medium resolution cover art from the high res covers off of DVDProfiler. Not great but better than nothing.

    Pretty good deal -- I got the free DVD of "Air Bud" (good kids movie) with a "Jumbo" box of Frosted Mini Wheats [​IMG] The only drawback was the transfer, which besides being full frame, looked like it was taken from garbage VHS elements.
