Needless to say that Disney has once again opted to release it in 16x9 only (1,78:1), cutting a big portion of the top and the bottom of the frame. The framing is even tighter than the DVD's.
The audio is Dolby Digital 2.0.

NOT RECOMMENDED (terrible picture -blurred and cropped, lossy audio, high price)
If, like me, you love this movie to bits and want to add it to your collection, I advise you to contact Disney customer service and explain why you aren't buying this Blu-ray. Otherwise they'll just claim that customers don't like it enough.
One major disappointment - aside from the price: this is easily a $14.99 Blu-ray - although not really that surprising, was the omission of the original making-of documentary that is also available on the same Walt Disney Treasures DVD mentioned above. Was it too much for them to restore that special in HD?
The other shorts are fine, especially the classic Pluto's Christmas Tree, which is also now in HD. But I REALLY wish Disney would do on Blu-ray what they did on VHS back in the 80s and put out a full "Walt Disney Christmas" with all the Christmas short films on one collection.
Disney destroyed this film in order to make it fill out widescreen TVs. They chopped the top and bottom off. It's a travesty they keep mutilating these films.
I attached 2 examples. In one, the "counting house" sign is cut out. In the other, you can't see Mickey is jumping off the chair onto a pile of books. Removing things like this really takes away from the movie.
The examples are endless. Through the whole thing characters are oddly shown from waist up, or the tops of their heads are cut off. Why would anyone prefer this? I'd avoid this at all costs, and I hope everyone stops buying these chopped up versions of Disney classics. Boycott any studio that does this. It's just as bad as what Lucas did to the original Star Wars movies!
