Unfortunately, a superimposed border has been added around the perimeter of the animation, drawn to look like you're watching it through a TV set. This is likely to remind viewers with widescreen TVs that Python episodes were shot for square TVs, but it's distracting and appears to slightly crop the animation.
Also, frequent Python viewers will notice the shorts have been edited down. For example, 'House Hunters' is included, but the joke where the house enters the woods followed by a flushing sound is missing.
As a fan of all things Terry Gilliam and animation in general, I had hoped that some of his earlier animated works would be included as extras, but the only worthwhile special feature is the interview.
Since this is the sole collection of Gilliam animation available on DVD (so far, outside of the Python sets), it's worth watching at least once while hoping for an eventual 'Terry Gilliam Animation Collection' with more content and assembled with greater care.
