    Is there any news on these shows coming on DVD?

    I know they are supposed to be released sometime around summer.

    Anything official yet?

    Prices, extras?

    I would like to see Penny Marshall and/ or Cindy Williams do an audio commentary for L & S. Also bloopers and those Re-union specials they have done would be nice to have included in the set.

    Havent heard anything. Hopefully soon if they were going to be coming this summer. I was going to get at least the first season of M&M. I remember it being a favorite of mine when I was a kid. Anyone whose more familar with it know if I'd still like it today?

    I cannot wait for Happy Days Seasons 1 and 2 as those were my favorites. In fact, I'd by a season 2 set for the "Guess Who's Coming To Christmas" episode alone. It still chokes me up to think of Fonzie alone on Christmas Eve, eating ravioli out of a can! [​IMG]

    I think that by now it's pretty clear we won't see these until the second half of the summer, at the earliest.

    Well, this is a Paramount release afterall.

    I would figure the price would be around $100 (Same as I Love Lucy Season 1 when it first came out).

    Hi, I've been lurking for a few months and just registered recently.

    I noticed the possible cover art for Season 1 of Happy Days over at TV Shows on DVD. Has anyone heard if the episodes are going to be the ABC first-runs or the syndication cuts? Is there a possibility that we'll get the original music or will it be replacement music? I was a fan of this show until Ron Howard left and thought the first two seasons were the best but I seriously doubt I will buy it if we get the syndication cuts and replacement music.

    I was wondering if anyone had noticed! [​IMG]

    Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley


    Frankly, I don't know yet the answers to your questions. I hope that they are intact, I don't get to speak to the people who know the answers to that question. Gord might, but not I.


    I was just telling a friend today about how upset I'll be if the first season song for opening credits isn't "Rock Around The Clock"...


    For anyone still not in-the-know, these hit on 8/17 for under $40 each (no official SRP), and are 3-DVD sets with the complete 1st Seasons.

    Personally I'm not too crazy about the cover art for HD and LAS. I think it would look better if the pictures were full pictures and not in a circle. Oh well maybe they'll change it. And I'm also hoping that these shows will be the first run versions. As much as I want these two shows, I will definately NOT buy them if anything is cut, including the music. So there!

    I registered on the site in the last few months and I saw the potential cover art today. Those email notices are a great idea! Hopefully, some specs will be released soon and we'll know the answers.
