5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely a Collector's Edition. Sept. 2 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I hadn't watched this as a kid. I only discovered it in the past couple years due to the "Mysterious Stranger" segment being immensely popular for its disturbing factors.
I didn't know a blu-ray had been released recently. I checked some time early last year and didn't find anything. Didn't even find any news about it. I had hoped it would make it to blu-ray eventually. To my very late suprise, it had already gotten a Collector's Edition release.
This blu-ray is definitely worth collecting. The picture quality is amazing for a dated production. It's stop-motion animation so the slight imperfections between snapshots will be very noticeable in HD. But that comes with the territory for stop-motion/claymation.
The sound is so very nice in either format. DTS-HD Master Audio in stereo or LPCM in stereo, they're the same.
The commentary and the special features are very entertaining and quite informative. If you love or have a high interest in this old-school style of film making, you'll love the special features. So much nostalgia when they talk about other productions (California Raisins).
The selected music tracks is quite fun, albeit very short.
So glad I decided to google if a blu-ray had been released as a DVD wouldn't cut it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures of Mark Twain by Will Vinton Jan. 15 2006
By EBGB
Format:DVD
My son was given this video when he was 2 years old. He's now almost 22 and we still love watching it! It's, hands down, the most viewed movie in our house. I generally watch a movie just once, twice if it's really good. I've seen this one probably 100 times and that's not an exageration. This film is a clay animated masterpiece with a great approach to telling a version of "the adventures of Mark Twian." I think Mr. Twain himself would approve. Needless to say, I highly recommend it. Warning, it may be a little scary for some youngsters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, long wait Feb. 25 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The only complaint I have with this is how long it took to arrive, it took over a week to ship and almost a month until I received it but other then that the movie itself was in great condition, and was definitely worth the wait to be able to add this classic to my collection.

This is not an easy DVD to get your hands on, so if you do find one I strongly suggest getting it if it's listed at a reasonable price. Don't hesitate to shop around a bit as you can find good deals on it. I got myself a brand new copy for $30 bucks, and that was a steal of a price.

Just to have been able seen this Claymation adventure is a unique privilege. It is the first animation to ever officially use the term "Claymation" and the man who made this adventure actually owns the trademark to the term.

I must warn you ahead of time that this film is not really a children's film, and I don't suggest showing it to any kids under the age of 14, unless you view it first and think your child would benefit from the message contained in it.

It deals with a darker & mature subject matter that very few children would even understand. It goes deep into the more dark parts of Mark Twain's mind exploring why we are here, the presence of EVIL and of Satan. It shows us that Mark Twain was a depressed man, but a brilliant person.

The Claymation itself is Top Notch and done with such perfection and brilliance that it will leave you stunned at how it was achieved so well for the time in which it was made.

After the film, I was left just sitting in silence staring at a blank TV screen because I was so intrigued by what I had just seen I didn't want to move. I just wanted to sit there and think about what I had just seen. Very Powerful indeed!

That being said, this is one of those films that is a "MUST OWN" as it is a masterpiece of animation and film making.
