Notes :
• All parts including soundtrack and video belong to The Walt Disney Compagny.
• Some other slight color changes can be observed but are not visible here (for copyright and video duration issues)
• The ‘Diamond Edtion’ errors seen in this video have been corrected later in the United States. But these erroneous versions are still the only ones present in most stores, especially in Europe (that’s why I used them here).
• On the back of the ‘Masterpiece Collection’ VHS cover, we can read “The film has been modified from it’s original version. It has been formatted to fit yout TV.”
