    when are they going to release the original x-men cartoons?
    i been waiting forever for this.
    with the x-men movies you think they use this as a good time to release them.
    in Season sets anyway...
    they started with tapes but never got them all released.
    plus they was not in order on top of it.
    they tos us a few dvds but thats all.
    its driveing me crazy!!! [​IMG]

    I think the reason is Disney. They own the rights and they seem to be the one studio who has not release a lot of shows on dvd in season sets. But, I am sure Gord or David can answer better than me.

    I would love this show in season sets.

    That's Disney for you. The thing is, without a new X-Men movie hitting theatres, Disney really isn't interested in realeasing any X-Men onto DVD. Even with Spider-man, the only reason that's coming out is because of the movie.

    Joshua's right. Plus, Disney's just now trying to release a cartoon series in a box-set format: Spider-Man. Reportedly, the next one to get a box set is Gargoyles. Beyond that, they stick to "best-of" releases.

    Patrick Stewart recently revealed that X3 is in-the-works. If boxes of Spidey and Gargoyles sell well for the Mouse, then perhaps they'll think about a box set for X-Men to tie in to the theater run of X3?...

    Just thinking out loud. No ideas if they're thinking the same way.

    Yeah! And while they're at it, they should also release "The Tick" also. [​IMG]

    Agreed, but I don't think they even know they own that series.

    To the people bringing up Spider-Man on DVD, are you talking about the 1967 cartoon or the 1994 one? And if you're talking about the first one, does anyone think the nineties one will ever come out on DVD?

    Daredevil vs. Spider-Man
    Spider-Man - The Return Of The Green Goblin
    Spider-Man - The Ultimate Villain Showdown

    Then some other company should release it. Then some Disney lawyer will figure it out eventually. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I knew about those, but that's just cheap crossover stuff. I want season box sets.

    I'd pick up the 90's Spidy sets as well, as I always liked it.

    I got a copy of all the X-men VHS and have watched them a few times. I'd pick this up if it came out. I hope they don't count on Gargoyles as a way to see demand, as I don't know of any body who is exactly getting the cream jeans over Gargoyles.

    Put me down for "The Tick" as well!

    I'm also curious if this is the 90s X-men or the earlier version where Wolverine had his brown costume and a bad French accent. If that's the one we're talking about, I didn't even know some episodes were released on DVD.

    Now I'm confused! The only X-Men cartoon I've seen where the ones that came out on VHS in the early 90's. I think that series of tapes ended with "The Age Of Apocalypse". I don't remember Wolverine in the brown custume, but in the blue and yellow. Was their one before this? Maybe someone in the know can post links to some screen caps.

    Gord, Dave! We need you![​IMG]

    Just because you don't know anyone anticipating the Gargoyles set doesn't mean they're not out there. Gargoyles has a HUGE fan base, even after 10 years... and the cartoon still runs regularly on Toon Disney. They even have Gargoyles fan conventions.

    Australian accent. It was, as already mentioned, just a one-shot, carried over from the popular X-Men appearances on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. Wolvie also had the strange accent on that show (maybe someone got confused over the Aussie storyline in the book around that time?)

    As for Gargoyles... out of all the Animated shows out there it probably has the second most organized fan base (next to BTAS and its associated series). I am looking forward to the Gargoyles S1 package and am positively salivating over BTAS V1. I'd buy some of the 90's X-Men (I think the longer the show ran, the weaker the storyline got).

    I think that episode was called "Pryde of the X-Men". It had better animation than the 90's show, but other than that it wasn't as good.

    I'd love season box sets of X-men, Spider-man and The Tick, too.
