The Gang of Five
It is quite fitting that the sweltering hot days of July arrive right when the gang confront the barrens of the Mysterious Beyond in the fifth film showcase.  It is almost like us admins planned it that way or something.  :bestsharptooth

This month in the Monthly Showcase we are featuring the Land Before Time V.  Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in that topic.  Additionally, there is a new fanfiction prompt challenge for the months of June July, please check out this topic for more information.

Also the discs feel really fragile so be very careful when taking them out.

So what you're say is that the Youtube versions if set in 1080p HD quality are better quality than the DVD?

Yeah but not by much. They did a pretty good job.

If I came to America and saw it in Walmart I won't be wasting my money for better quality on Youtube.

Why would Universal re-release a DVD of episodes despite knowing that people can watch them all for free on Youtube. Isn't that a risky business strategy to make something easily available for free and then ask people to buy the already existing episodes on Youtube for money?

I was thinking that myself. I wouldn't be surprised if I was the only one who pre-ordered it.
I love the Yellow Bellies.

It's also a de-mastered DVD.

I own 101 Dalmatians 1961 on regular DVD but that's been upgraded with surround sound and cleaned up to look brand new. Universal should've done something like that to make it stand out from the Youtube video instead of going the opposite way. Also audio commentaries would've given the DVDs way more selling potential.

That would have been awesome but Universal is too lazy to do anything cool.
I love the Yellow Bellies.

$154 Billion the company's worth and Universal can't even scale something to 1080p like on the internet? smh.

Glad the quality looks good, disappointed that there’s no bonus features since the previous TV series releases had bonus features, so missed opportunity.

Anyway one last question, and it might be stupid but, is there any background music playing on the DVD menu so the menu doesn’t look THAT depressing considering it already looks bare bones?

I haven't checked. Not in the mood for earworms right now. The menu's running time is 1 minute and 30 seconds so maybe.

The only major reason I can think off the top of my head is that there would be no YouTube ads.
Also, we're lucky that we even got a DVD release in the first place.

Can't people just put ad blocker on their google chrome to not have to watch ads on the episodes for free?

Wow. I had no idea they were finally releasing the full TV series on DVD. Too bad it seems to be restricted to the US. Do you guys know if these DVDs can play on European DVD players?

Also, have any of you guys bought the full 14 film box set? Is it worth it?
I'm hip, I'm cool. I'm a happening fool

Unless you have a multi region DVD player then probably not.
