The VHS is great, but the DVD is NOT!
on December 11, 2002
I have owned the VHS version of this Sing Along ever since it came out over ten years ago and I have loved it. It is one of my favorite holiday videos, particularly the Wooden Soldiers on Parade song. I loved the VHS so much I decided to buy it on DVD. The reason I am giving the DVD 1 star is because it is very different and much worse than the original VHS, and I wish I had known this before I bought it. There is talking in between all the songs (unlike the VHS version which has a smooth transition between songs) which spoils the continuity and the video as a whole. There are also many additional songs which do not live up to the original songs' quality. They are just fillers and detract greatly from the video. The DVD also has changed the Wooden Soldiers song to a more modern version which isn't half as good. I am extremely dissappointed that Disney did not just leave this wonderful video as it was. This DVD has ruined the beauty of the original VHS. My advice is get the VHS version and skip the DVD!
