Wow, this is exciting news, and certainly a series I never thought anyone would take on for DVD. (In fact, if I remember correctly, David Levine recently remarked that it's the kind of show that'd look incredibly scary to DVD companies.) So, cheers to Shout Factory.
I would just manage everyone's expectations a bit on the image quality, because the b&w segments looked pretty hairy in their last syndication runs -- I suspect they were quick & dirty transfers 16mm prints, and I doubt anyone will be remastering them. The color episodes looked great, but it would take about, er, 10 of these sets to get to them.
Charles, I'd gotten some info about the unaired pilot from Bill Self and a few others, but nobody remembered who directed it -- do you know?
And, does anyone have contact info for the folks at Shout Factory? Probably more appropriate to send me a PM or e-mail than to post it here.
