Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but DuckTales is actually only 75% done and is a stalled series (Volume 4 with the remaining 25 episodes was expected in the series' usual Fall release timeslot in 2008 but it never made it out). I also don't believe the movie was ever released in the United States (Moot point since the movie was available in Canada so it's easily acquired).
And sadly, there are no signs that Disney has any plans to rectify this situation. Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers and TaleSpin are also stalled and are both less then 15 episodes away from being finished, having seen their last releases in the Fall of 2006 and 2007 respectively.
Also, Emergency! concluded it's run with 6 movies that were produced after season 6 ended and utilized most of the cast of the original show at various points (Although the Engine 51 crew is sadly absent besides in highlights in the retrospective show, but the Rampart doctors and Head Nurse Dixie McCall do make appearances along with Squard 51 of course). And they're as much a part of the series as any of the regular episodes were and this great program
won't be finished until these excellent made for tv movies are hopefully made available on DVD in a year if Universal finishes it out. This one won't be finished until the spring of 2011 at the earliest.
A show that I'm surprised is out in it's entirety is Family Affair
. Especially when superior and better remembered programs like My Three Sons were absent from DVD (Although that one is slowly trickling out in hacked apart form now, though I don't think anyone really expects to see it finished or even the B&W run to be completed). I also never thought Fraggle Rock
would make it after there being no sign of any intentions of releasing it on DVD for so long. Once it started, it only took three years for it to get finished up.
