  • Exaggerated: Every single scene in Troperoo (2005) are the exact same as Troperoo (1955), down to minor details and sounds, which make it feel like a colorisation of the original than a remake.
  • Downplayed: A few scenes in Troperoo (2005) are the same as in the original.

  • Justified: The creators want to make the audience more familiar to the movie.
