Just watched the Disney DVD of TOBY TYLER (1960). Full-frame, and it looks like it's been cropped from 1.66:1, I assume - nevertheless, a great little film in the Disney tradition. Captivating work by Mr. Stubbs, the chimpanzee. I would like to think that kids of today would enjoy this and not find it boring after being used to SHREK and THE INCREDIBLES. It had a lot of fades to black, so maybe it was filmed with TV presentation in mind. And ... you can skip the previews and go straight to the feature menu.

No OAR, no sale.

If you have young kids or grandkids, reconsider. It's a heartwarming family film, and a story nicely told. Besides, ya gotta like Moochie!

Your welcome to that view, but some of us are actually more concerned with the director, the script, the actors, the story.


I like having the big budget flicks on widescreen and all, but for a good drama or comedy, its not a huge deal

It was just another misguided condemnation by the OAR police. Pay no attention to the zealots.

Not everything released after the birth of widescreen was in widescreen, and 1.33:1 isn't a whole lot different from 1.66:1. As I recall, Toby Tyler was released to the theaters, but Disneyland was on the air by then and Walt doubtlessly had plans for it to be shown on the show, and it was.


As "Moochie" was about my age, I was a big fan too.
