Logo Preservation — Page 2

The last known edition of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 to have the original Walt Disney pictures logo are the 2005 DVD editions as far as I know, which I’ve ripped onto my computer. The changing of the logo is so egregious for Toy Story in particular, as the logo segues into Andy’s bedroom wallpaper. That really bothered me when I went to see the 3D re-release back in 2010. It’s so shoddily plastered over!

I’m glad I found this thread, I genuinely thought I was the only one bothered by this disturbing trend in re-releases.

This is partly why I’m glad when I got all 3 films on DVD off eBay the other month ago it was the 2005 DVDs of TS and TS2 that were included. I saw the 3D reissue before the release of TS3 and yeah the logo plastering I wasn’t happy with.

When restoring the original logos for my 3D version, I’m using the UK R2 DVD as my source, for maximum possible quality.

a bunch of the old New Line Cinema logos need to be preserved

Does the Shout Blu-Ray of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie retain the original Universal logo from the 90’s?

Willy Wonka’s opening logo has been plastered at least five times.

1986 VHS (same logo appears on 1984 VHS)

1994 VHS (1995 reprint, same logo appears on 1991 VHS). At first glance you might think this is the same logo on the ‘84 and ‘86 VHS but if you look closely the clouds are in a different position.

That’s pretty appalling - that’s no way to treat such a nice film.

Though it should probably be noted that Paramount were only the US theatrical distributors, and prints in other territories would have had different logos in any case - CIC handled a lot of Europe, for instance.

UK distribution is attributed to Paramount British Pictures (aka Paramount Film Service) - it’s hard to say if they would have had a distinct logo (the only one I can find is from 1946: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WCXEGh3Onc)
