    Is Animated ever shown in HD or at least in widescreen? I've been able to get HD Batman: Brave and the Bold, but I really like how HD cartoons look.

    I know it's ANIMATED in 16:9. But is it shown that way?

    I recorded on my TivoHD from Cartoon Network HD - I'll go back and check the specs.

    While the show is actually animated in a 16x9 wide screen format, Cartoon Network (and the DVD's) broadcasts only the 4x3 full frame version. On their HD channel, they simply stretch the broadcast to fill the screen. Cartoon Network seems to do this with all of their non-HD shows.

    So they chop the top and bottom and then stretch it? Ugh.

    Actually, they chop the sides. But yeah, for some reason they haven't put out the widescreen version. Surprised especially not on the DVD. To be fair, most animation is drawn beyond the borders so that when each frame is filmed, they have enough room to crop in, but in this case, I believe the animation was intended to be 16x9.
