Puppy Plays The Classics (DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: B-     Extras: C-     Main Program: C



What do you get when you pick highly appealing video of puppies and set them to classical music?  A predictable, safe, amusing and watchable program like Puppy Plays The Classics (2007) designed to appeal to children and animal lovers with its own case of the cutes.  Though the choices can seem awkward (the use of Wagner is ‘fascinating’) as well as interchangeable, it is a fine enough program (running 45 minutes) and is a decent analog video production.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is soft throughout, on video maybe a generation down and sadly has aliasing problems throughout.  The PCM 2.0 16/48 Stereo is a nice surprise, sounding decent and making up for the image issues somewhat, though the classical music itself can sound a little dated.  Extras include puppy care tips, behind the scenes footage and a bonus Puppy Tale in 1.33 X 1 video.
