I am considering buying this classic collection to replace my NTSC versions of the movies and to add the cartoons to my collection. I would like to know if the cartoons are presented in the correct aspect ratio of 1:1.33 rather than 16:9 widescreen? Also I would like to know if the cartoons contain added dialogue/speech. Originally the cartoons don't contain any dialogue/speech.
I believe they are the cropped 16:9 versions, unfortunately. It is all the 124 cartoons made between 1964 and 1980. The panther (and others) speaks in two cartoons from 1965, and always did (dialogue is not 'added'). He doesn't speak in the other 122. The NTSC version of the cartoon set is in the correct aspect ratio, I think.
