betamaxed - 2018-06-29 No joke: Our family was rocking a betamax until 1987 at which time we finally switched to VHS. Our first VHS tapes were Clue and Spaceballs. So your claim of "as it should be seen" is 100% correct.
Old_Zircon - 2018-06-29 I taped it off daytime cable. My first VHS tape was the HBO premiere of Pee Wee's Big Adventure.
Old_Zircon - 2018-06-29 I actually saw Spaceballs in the theater but sicne then I'm not sure if I've ever seen it in a form other than "taped off daytime cable."

Monty Python and the Holy Grail was always the worst quality imaginable when they used to show it on TV, I remember a jump cut in the middle of some dialogue where frames were missing. I don't know how they got such a bad print but they showed it for years and years.
