If George had worked on this DVDs Im pretty sure that his Wide screen "**** up" had never happened in first place. So I think everyone has wright to express there displeasure with the those transfers, I also want point out Live-action and animation are different medium so matting in Live-action is to hide goofs first and foremost, wile matting in animation removes the back ground art and that art im pretty sure that everyone on here at lest want to see.
Jerry sent me an email saying:
"The post-1953 Looney Tunes on these new DVD releases are presented in their original 1:85 "wide-screen" format - the way they were originally shown in theatres - and the cartoons were designed for viewing this way.
That said, yes, some picture is cut at the top and bottom of the screen - but the filmmakers knew this and nothing significant is missing for you to enjoy the cartoon."
After watching the Bugs disc, I can say it was noticeable on certain cartoons. However, if this was a ploy for widescreen tv owners, why didn't they just matte all the cartoons?
