In the United States, the film was released straight to VHS and DVD on October 7, 2003 by MGM Home Entertainment. Aside from the MGM logo added at the beginning and end, the feature is slightly abridged to make it a fully traditionally animated feature by deleting out the live-action bookend scenes. However, the bookend scenes are added into the DVD's special features.
