Finally, another of my holy grails of independant animation is coming to DVD. I love this show on Adult Swim, and was hoping we'd hear something about a DVD release soon. And it seems that someone else was listening to all those hopes, as Shout! Factory has picked up Home Movies for DVD release. Home Movies rocks, even if the animation is a bit amatuer for most peoples tastes. I think it fits the show well, and can't wait to own this on DVD. Thanks to TVShowsonDVD for the news. Posted Image
Home Movies - Shout! Factory Licenses Show
Posted by Gord Lacey - 7/14/2004

Fresh from the VSDA show special issue of Video Store magazine comes the news that Shout! Factory has licensed Home Movies from Soup2Nuts and will release Season 1 on November 16 in a 3-disc set. Shout! Factory wasn't able to give us any more information, but they're very excited about working on the set.

Brendon Small, who created and does voices for the show, also has this to say at his website:

Hey friends, we're working on the dvd we'll have it released between now and 2012. So, plug your dvd player in and get ready!

Thanks to all the readers who e-mailed us about Brendon's site.

No kidding re: Dr. Katz. I've talked with the producer or director (Niki Herbert) several years back, and it seems that Soup2Nuts didn't have the rights to it any longer..... An email to Shout! couldn't hurt though.

Seriously...there's so many damn DVDs and video games coming out in the Holiday season that I can't wait till 12-25 to recieve! Like this bad boy comes out Nov 16th...there's no way I can wait a month and a half to have this! Between this, and at least 10 more DVDs. And then the new Grand Theft Auto, Halo and Unreal games...I'm going to spend jsut as much money on myself as I am everyond else! Youch!

Thank you, Shout! Factory. Only a few days after my B-Day.

Excellent, excellent news!

My wife and I have been sooo depressed since the final episode of the series aired a few months back.

This show was so clever. It's bound to be one of those overlooked classics similar to how Freaks and Geeks, and Family Guy were given proper credit after their DVD release.

Home Movies is at the very top of my TV on DVD wish list.

Comedy Central owns 'Dr. Katz' outright (which makes it all the frustrating that they won't run at least one episode per week late-night). Viacom owns Comedy Central.

Fantastic series. I had no idea this past new season of episodes was the last. How could they???

At least we'll have the DVDs.

Oh thank God. It's about time. The best show Adult Swim ever aired, or at least the smartest. I'll definitly be picking this up.
