I watched episodes 1-3 of The Abominable Snowmen on Saturday night.

I've always liked the story so that was never an issue. However seeing the trailer the disappointing animation was the reason why i said i wouldn't buy it until it was reduced.

I watched parts one and three black and white animated and part 2 as the proper episode.

The Yeti don't actually look any worse animated in black and white than the actual ones do in the episode, which is nicely restored by the way. (Far better than the version on The Missing Years dvd. Those scenes on the mountain look very good indeed.) They don't move what you would call gracefully at all and to be honest look a bit clunky. The Yeti in The Web of Fear are a huge improvement.

The characters, sets and those globes all look very decent animated in black and white
