On August 26, 1997, Mary Poppins was re-released on home video digitally restored. On March 24, 1998, a widescreen DVD was released. This DVD has the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo (with the cut-short version of distorted extended 1992 Walt Disney Classics logo's music), instead of the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video logo, making it the only Disney DVD with any use of the Masterpiece Collection logo, and for the fact that it was still a Masterpiece Collection title when the DVD came out.


Synopsis

High above the dawn clouds over London, "practically perfect" Mary Poppins floats out of the sky and into the lives of two playfully mischeivious children. With the help of a carefree chimney sweep named Bert, the spirited nanny makes every chore a game and every day a "jolly holiday." But, after they leap into a imaginative world of a sidewalk chalk drawing, visit a hilarious floating tea party, and join a rooftop song and dance, it may take more than "A Spoonful of Sugar" to cheer up the children's precise and disapproving father!
