This is a great disc, glad Peter finally got around to reviewing it!

It's amazing how good it looks, considering its from the 30's!

Just wanted to note that the review states there are 4 featurettes in HD: 2 cartoons and 2 short features. However there are actually only 3 featurettes in 1080p HD: all cartoons (Katnip College, Rabbit Hood, Robin Hood Daffy). Also the review states that there are no HD exclusive extras, however the above cartoons would obviously qualify.

^^ Thanks for the update. This is one title I've been on the fence about. I'll end up picking it up if I can find it for a decent price.

It's rather unique in that it's the only HD DVD with classic cartoons in HD. Casablanca, the only other HD DVD I recall having classic cartoons, has them in SD.
