The mercury is climbing, people are wearing less, louder and dumber flicks are invading the multiplexes—yes, we must be deep into the summer season. Blu-ray Bob is going to cool off by thinking about the announcement today of a few animated classics getting the high-def treatment on October 6. Warner Bros. is putting out the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas on Blu-ray on the same day as the original Horton Hears a Who!, also by Dr. Seuss. No word on extras for Grinch, but Horton includes a feature-length documentary called “In Search of Dr. Seuss,” a sing-along music video, and two more animated shorts. As if those two titles didn’t satisfy your 2-D animation cravings enough for one day, Warner Bros. will also release A Charlie Brown Christmas on BD with a bonus Peanuts TV special on October 6. Blu-ray Bob is a little psychic, and he picked up the vibes of a few of you wondering if there’s any real benefit to getting old hand-drawn cartoons on Blu-ray Disc. An excellent question (although Blu-ray Bob admits he is a tad biased - must be the name). The answer is the menus and extras will be more interactive and fun, and the features’ colors will be richer and more vibrant. Will you notice the difference as much as comparing a live-action DVD with a BD? Probably not, but Blu-ray is always the way to go if you want the absolute best presentation.
