* The 1990's reprint of the old WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat comics, ''Felix Keeps on Walkin'', deliberately altered the original artwork, redoing all of the colors digitally and adding gradients that weren't in the original art, and its linenotes even brag about how they ''removed'' bits of the original artwork, such as the expressive cartoon spark lines that pop up around Felix's head.

* ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger the Movie; Full Blast Action'' had an issue on its DVD release: in the music video playing during the end credits, the blue was desaturated. This turns Hoji from DekaBlue to "DekaGray" (and did not do Tetsu/DekaBreak any favors as well, as his suit is mostly white but has a huge section of blue.) Fortunately, the HD copy released on the ''Series/SuperSentai V-Cinema & Blu-Ray Box 1996-2005'' fixes this. (Pictures from the TV-Nihon wiki: [[http://wiki.tvnihon.com/w/images/1/11/DekaMovieBlueGrey1.jpg]], [[http://wiki.tvnihon.com/w/images/b/ba/DekaMovieBlueGrey2.jpg]], [[http://wiki.tvnihon.com/w/images/0/00/DekaMovieBlueGrey3.jpg]]).

** Also, the Blu-rays releases for the original films are sourced from the same digital masters as the [=DVDs=] several years earlier, which are considered very dated by modern standards, as the scanning was performed in 1080p whereas most Blu-rays are sourced from much more detailed 2K, 4K, 6K, or even 8K masters. After excessive DVNR, those 1080p scans end up with decreased quality closer to 720p, making them well below standard for such high-profile releases.

* ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' had its 1998 dub tweaked for its 2010 North American DVD re-release, reverting the music to match the Japanese version, and removing some dialogue that created LullDestruction. Unfortunately, what dialogue does remain now sounds as hard-to-hear as if the characters spoke through a fan. This is not an issue on the later 2014 Blu-ray, however.

** Similarly, most of the ''Adventure'' episodes have tons of DVD artifacts on the Netflix versions of them. At least one of them similarly cuts the intro.

* The Blu-ray releases of the ''Mary Poppins'' 50th Anniversary Edition (specifically, the animation in the "Jolly Holiday" sequence), ''Mickeys Christmas Carol'' and the interstitial segments of the standalone [=DVD=] release of ''Mickey and the Beanstalk''[[note]]the ones starring Ludwig Von Drake that were retroactively added to it in the 1960's for TV airings--the normal release of the movie in its original form as ''Disney/FunAndFancyFree'' is unharmed[[/note]] are hit with this exact same kind of horrible DVNR and grain smoothing.



* The 2004 DVD release of ''Film/MaryPoppins'' featured an "Enhanced Home Theater Mix" audio track, which tampered the audio quite a bit, with nearly all of the sound effects replaced, and a few bits of new music added where there originally wasn't any. (Obvious examples include the wind when Mary Poppins is sitting on a cloud, the "Poof!" noise when Mary, Jane, Michael and Bert jump into the chalk drawing, the thunder and lightning before it starts raining on the chalk drawing, and the fireworks following the "Step in Time" number.) Sadly, this version was also used whenever Creator/ABCFamily would air the movie. Fortunately, Disney released a new DVD in 2009 with the new sound effects gone, and ABC Family's subsequent airings also use the original sound track, also the 50th Anniversary Edition has an "Enhanced Home Theater Mix" that resembles the original sound track.

* While most Disney films avoid using the DVNR process, the Most Wanted Edition DVD release of ''Disney/RobinHood'' was an exception to the rule. While Disney is usually careful even when using the infamous process, the issue was that the film was made when Disney was using Xeroxing in place of hand inked cels, and the itchy, hairy lines combined with a restoration process that is specifically designed to remove things it detects as scratches and dirt was a recipe for trouble. There are many obvious instances of linework and art erasing throughout this release. Its most noticeable in the opening when Robin is having chit chat with Little John and during the archery scenes, where the artwork of the arrows is frequently eaten away at into nothing due to DVNR art erasing. To add insult to injury, the aspect ratio is cropped to 1.75:1 widescreen as well compared to the previous Gold Collection DVD release.
* The Blu-ray and digital HD versions of ''The Return Of Jafar'' and ''Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves'' both have their original 1.33:1 aspect ratios copped to 1.78:1. The latter was also cropped when it was released on DVD back in 2005, while the former thankfully wasn't.

* Classic WWII documentary series ''The World at War'' was reissued on DVD and Blu-Ray in an "Ultimate Restored Edition". On the plus side, most of the archival war footage is remastered from the surviving 35mm or 16mm originals, descratched, stabilised and re-graded. What kills it for some viewers is that the image is cropped and scanned into widescreen. This restored version was rather controversial due to being in widescreen and despite the fact it was made for fullscreen transmission and is not allowed to be shown in its widescreen restored form, so the unrestored fullscreen edition with 90s Thames logos (before they lost their franchise to Carlton) is shown instead for reruns. Fortunately the remastering was carried out on the full-frame pictures before cropping, and the most recent DVD and Blu-Ray edition from Network restores the original aspect ratios, in line with Network's usual policy..

* When the October 1950-March 1962 ''WesternAnimation/{{Noveltoons}}'' from Creator/FamousStudios were repackaged for television broadcast by Classic Media in the late 90's, not only were the original opening titles cut, but the soundtracks were remastered in '''PAL''' format, for American audiences. Additionally, the picture quality, while sharper, is marred with faded and inaccurate colors. By contrast, the MCA/Universal video releases in the early-mid 90's have the cartoons with some modified opening titles, but are otherwise mostly untouched despite not being restored. To make matters worse, the "remastered" versions were included on Classic Media's DVD releases. Fortunately, Universal reclaimed the rights to the shorts following their takeover of Creator/DreamWorksAnimation, Classic Media's parent company, sparking hope that a more superior restoration of the shorts are on the way.
