I remember reading a post in this Forum as well as at TVSHOWSONDVD that the Groovy Ghoulies Complete Series was being released by BCI in October. I cannot find any sites that have it up for order. Was this delayed?

Ultraman which was due in October by BCI as well hasn't been listed either. I wonder what is up.

It looks like BCI didn't even send in nominations in the year end polls after winning last year with He Man.

This was just mentioned on the TV Shows on DVD web site. Looks like October 24th is the release date.

Wow, I'm surprised that there are any extras on this, let alone a 45-minute documentary. Can't wait for this.

How many discs are in this set?
I'm a classic TV fan. Widescreen? What's that?

It's a really great doc. Created for us by Wally Wingert (he does a million voices for TV and games) and Daniel Roebuck (Professor Arzt on LOST) with a bunch of great interviews, fun bits, music and a performance by the band "The Groovie Ghoulies.

If this is due out next month, how do I actually find it listed anywhere, like amazon. Maybe they got the name or spelling wrong.

Since I sincerely doubt this will be sold in any B&M store, I wanted to point out that DeepDiscountDVD has an amazing price on this one.

I received a review copy from Ink & Paint. The show was way before my time but I found it entertaining. If I got a copy I'm sure it's on its way. I found it on Amazon too, where I posted my lil review. Sorry I'm not so technical as some of you guys when it comes to reviews Posted Image But I hadn't even heard of this show before but I'm sure it's well loved by someone.

Someone out there was probably waiting for Groovie Goolies as much as I am waiting for Jem Season 3 Part 2

I know that this set isn't the complete Groovie Goolies canon (there's a special where they encounter Daffy Duck and Porky Pig for one) but what else is there and will it ever see release?

The jokes may be the corniest ever, but the songs are so catchy. Posted Image

I was only a small child when all these shows originally aired, but "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" (the original) was a spin-off of "The Archie Comedy Hour," and at some point, Sabrina shared a show with the Groovy Goolies under the title "Sabrina And The Groovy Goolies" (imagine that). Archie Comics is selling four DVDs of Archie cartoons, and among them are a few "Sabrina" half-hours...which feature the Groovy Goolies (and in one case, Sabrina, the Archies and the Groovy Goolies all appear together). I imagine the rest of these shows will be released at some point...in one form or another. As regards the Daffy Duck & Porky Pig crossover (which was an installment of "The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie"), that would certainly require licensing the Warner Bros. cartoon characters, so unless they got a deal when they produced it for perpetual rights to that particular appearance, then that show would otherwise be locked up in limbo. (I can't see it making the "Looney Tunes Golden Collections," even as an "extra.")
