"In Remembrance of Frank Wells President of The Walt Disney Company from 1984-1994"
When the movie was released on DVD in October 2003, it offered two versions of the film: The "Special Edition" (the 2002 IMAX re-release), and the "Original Theatrical Release". The "Original Theatrical Release" is actually identical to the 2002 IMAX/"Special Edition" re-release, except that it opens with the memorial card to Frank Wells, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. (this includes the pouncing lesson scene). All of the other edits that were made to the 2002 IMAX re-release (the cleaned-up animation, etc.) are also present in this version.
