No chapters, only elapsed minutes (no seconds) as this is an early CLV disc.

This title appears to have been transfered directly from the anamorphic print, so it has that "squeezed" look. Since it's 2.35, it would still look somewhat odd on 16x9 displays.

The original widescreen theatrical image is transferred with some "Pan & Scan". Not an actual 16x9 "squeeze" title, but a 16x9 display will improve the picture dimensions.

Mint marks are hand scratched.

Originally advertised as catalog number 42011AS. Disney dropped the 420 prefix by the time the disc was released. The earliest pressings have the 42011 catalog number hand scratched on the inner ring of the disc.

The disc's CX Noise Reduction encoding doesn't match the CX-14 LD system specifications, so the audio pumps up and down in volume quite noticeably when played with CX ON. Since the disc was made before the advent of Auto-CX activation, it can be played without CX decoding, leading to slightly higher background audio noise but better fidelity and intelligibility.

This is the first PG rated Disney movie ever!
