I had both VHS versions of "The Cage", with the black&white cuts, and the full color version. I was one of those who suspected it was simply colorized, though later details about the discovery of the found color footage has me leaning the other direction. I had two copies of "The Menagerie" too, the one released in the series package, and an earlier one in a big cardboard book-like case. The latter was the first tape I bought after buying a VCR. It was the store's only rental copy, and I convinced them to sell it to me. It must have been around 1985 or 86.
