    I noticed this especially with tom and jerry and merrie melodies/looney tunes cartoons. for example. the merrie melodies and looney tunes's cartoons's starting music on tv is in C# major but when I open them from a CD or on internet I find it in C major. I need to understand why this is happening because I am confused

    This is a general problem, since television color formats differ in certain parts of the world. In Europe, Africa, most of Asia and Oceania, due to the fact that almost every country on the continent chose either PAL or SECAM, the music is pitched by one note because of some fort of frame rate conversion.
