Apparently, Disney+ did listen to the fan complaints about the Simpsons. The 4:3 aspect ratio versions should be up some time next year:

Quote:
“We presented “The Simpsons” in 16:9 aspect ratio at launch in order to guarantee visual quality and consistency across all 30 seasons. Over time, Disney+ will roll out new features and additional viewing options. As part of this, in early 2020, Disney+ will make the first 19 seasons (and some episodes from Season 20) of “The Simpsons” available in their original 4:3 aspect ratio, giving subscribers a choice of how they prefer to view the popular series.”


However, I wouldn't read too much into them responding to fan complaints because of this. The Simpsons World app already had the 4:3 versions available on it--that app was taken down the day before Disney+ launched. So they've already made them available for streaming before, and it's just a matter of uploading them onto the new service. For anything that would actually require a fresh, new re-scan, I doubt there's much hope for complaints to be listened to, unless they think it's affecting their subscriber-ship/bottom line significantly.


The HD-restored Disney Afternoon shows that are cropped, though - Goof Troop, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, The Little Mermaid, a few episodes of Pooh - can be fixed without any additional work. These remasters all exist in both fullscreen and cropped widescreen versions.

The first season of the original Mickey Mouse Club is also on the app. 3 of 5 episodes feature classic cartoons. Episode 1 features Pueblo Pluto (1949), episode 2 features Mickey's Kangaroo (1935) and episode 4 has the Wise Little Hen(1934). All of them are missing their opening title cards and are in black and white.

The first season only consists of 5 episodes?

It's the same bunch that was on that Walt Disney Treasures set from 2005. The first Spin and Marty series is also on there by itself.

Oh, that's disappointing. And those 5 episodes are ALL there is of the Mickey Mouse Club on Disney+? I was hoping there might be some episodes that never got released on DVD.

In regards to comments asking if stuff is in HD...I honestly don't know. There's no resolution toggle like on YouTube, and there's no indicator of whether something's in HD.
