I've been able to compare the new region 2 release of season one with the original region 1 release, and there are some minor differences.

Region 2 has one extra "bonus feature," which is labelled as a collection of "trailers" for other Adult Swim shows. This would have been kind of cool if they'd actually collected (or created) commercials for the shows, but instead, almost all of them are actually just the opening titles from the shows. So you get to watch the opening sequences from Sealab 2021, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Brak Show and a few others. Lame.

The other difference is a negative one: the music has been stripped from the sub menus. The only tracks that remain are the opening theme (disc 1) and the closing theme (disc 2). None of the submenus have any music at all.

This strikes me as interesting, because the choice to reencode the menus without music was obviously intentional; my guess is that the tracks are being removed because they will appear on a future soundtrack release (or something similar) and they don't want people ripping the tracks from the DVD for free. We'll see if future region 1 pressings are missing the music as well.

Unfortunately certain audio dropouts remain on this release; they were not corrected. The most obvious one is in the first episode, during which The Monarch shares his desire to find his butterfly family again. The dropout obscures the beginning of the word "parents." Does anyone happen to have an original broadcast recording of that episode? Was it a problem from the very beginning?
