The second main episode, ‘Un-Valentine’s Day,” is also fun. The story revolves around the animals boycotting valentines due to some excess in previous years only to hand them out anyway. In true Pooh fashion, the valentines start getting passed around to one and all due to an ever-expanding series of accidents, but it all works out well enough in the end as everyone seems to realize that they truly do like getting valentines.
The look of the episode is drastically from the previous one. It is an older episode and certainly looks it, while it doesn’t appear quite as clean as one might like, there is nothing there to detract from one’s viewing of it, as there is in the first story. During “A Valentine for You,” on a regular basis when a character turns, walks, or shifts in any way, the movement causes the character to devolve around the edges into what appears to be some very bad pixelation. The picture on the right is an example of the issue (click for larger image). While the double-image around his mouth is a by-product of freeze-framing a moving image, the jagged lines/pixelation on his arm are not, they are the problem in question. As it has occurred for this reviewer on more than one copy of the DVD using more than one television and DVD player, the incident is not due to a single faulty disc or player. The issue is not one that crops up all the time, but it happens regularly and is disturbing enough that it makes it difficult to recommend the release. Young members of the audience — for whom the title is mainly geared — probably will not mind, but adults will and may not consider the purchase money well spent.
