Was the CED PAL or NTSC? Might not make a difference either way...
Thing is, TKAA is a mish mash of straight transfers and speed changes.
I'm 99% certain that my PAL VHS runs fast (being a film>PAL transfer etc). A Quick One is one of the few segments that runs at the right speed. It seems that anything originally shot to video for UK/Europe comes out fine on the VHS; everything else runs fast (including Baba and WGFA).
I'm imagining that AQO and a few other segments were slowed down when it when to 24 fps for the theatres, leaving everything else at the right speed. TKAA was then subjected to PAL speedup in it's entirety for home video.
Then we've got the original negative commited to high def video at 24 fps for NTSC DVD (it came out as NTSC over here aswell, surprisingly). To be honest, I don't think they have ever had the facility to correct any speeds on ANY version have they? Only the pitch on the DVD?
Did any of that make sence?
