The VHS tape was a little bit grainy, it's constant and uniform so I presume it was the broadcast reception rather than the tape. I ran a few tests to smooth out the picture, but there was no real moment when the grain disappeared and the detail blurring started, so I left it as it untouched.
The Cosmik Debris is an easy upgrade to the current Oppopoppa version.
It's very unusual to have to edit a broadcast, but it seemed every other clip was off center so I fixed them all to fill the screen.
All the black and white footage had the usual nasty VCR color casts so I desaturated all those sections and they are much cleaner than the VHS.
