I wonder if the early seasons will be high quality up converts.

The DVD rips I have leave a lot to be desired.

Keep in mind that the quality of the animation itself in the earliest years was not as sharp as it became (this is true for quite a few series).

The show didn't switch from SD to HD until sometime in Season 20.

That doesn't mean the original material isn't in HD. Even if rebroadcast in SD, the resolution will be considerably higher than what we all saw in the original broadcasts. Keep in mind that SD actually refers to 720x480, or DVD quality. What we saw on analog cable or OTA was much less than that. SD broadcast digitally provides a much better image than what we used to see.

PSA:
....also the episodes are almost certainly cut for extra commercial time, so you're likely missing a significant quantity (many minutes) of each episode.
