anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital 5.1
mix are as good as these shows are going to play in the DVD format.
Extras include Dragon Tracker, Part 4, Evolution of the
Skrill, Here Comes the Fire Dragon Mash-up and the World
of DreamWorks Animation. We also received a tie-in comic book
separately and though it does not come with this release, it was
