This Is a slightly remastered version i made myself. The movie has more color in it, and the sound has been upgraded a bit. Please note that this movie was uploaded in a video size of 320x240, so it wont look as good as it should if you watch it with the player that's here on the archive. Their player wont re- size to the 320x240 frame size. To see it in its full quality, download the cinepak version,which is the original AVI file i uploaded. That version looks really good to me.
