    I just got the following email from dvdempire who I had the disc ordered with:


    Dear Customer

    We have just been informed of a recall on the Paramount tile "The History of Beavis & Butthead" The studio has asked us to take the title off-line and cancel all orders. Because of this, we will not be able to
    ship you the copy that you ordered, and we do not have information as to if or when the title will be re-announced.
    However, when we do get this information, we will post it on-line under a new listing. This recall will affect all persons selling the tile and it is not limited to us, so it seems that the product will not make it into the
    marketplace. We do apologize for the situation

    DVD Empire


    This stinks. Hopefully, it is to go back and add the funniest parts of the show..The music videos.

    I got that too. Very strange. I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that the Time Life video is comng out next week.

    Hmm, haven't seen that note as of yet, but I had it on pre-order from DVDEmpire as well.

    That bites. I was looking forward to it. I was hoping the 'Fire, FIRE!' episode would be on it. For some reason I always like those two goofballs.

    If true, not surprising. Paramount has announced and then cancelled a number of releases already this year.

    I have mine on order at Amazon.ca so I'll see if I get a similar note from them.

    Not to pick on Paramount (they've done some great work lately), but man they seem to have more clearance-problems than any other studio!

    Yeah I got this message as well. At least there is still the TimeLife deal.

    I fthis is true, this will affect my first order with Amazon.ca. Hopefully they won't remove my coupon.

    And I hope they actually cancel this title instead of holding it on perpetual back-order--which will hold up the rest of the order.

    Interesting development:
    I have been contacted by a Best Buy employee who informs me that the History of Beavis and Butthead 2-disc set is pictured in the chain's weekly ad circular for the week of 9/24! [​IMG]
    That, of course, doesn't necessarily mean squat. But it will be interesting to see what happens with this.

    This is terrible news [​IMG] I just bought Beavis & Butthead Do America and Beavis & Butthead: The Final Judgement, and was planning to finish my collection with the Time Life and Paramount sets.

    "Backordered" simply means it's a upcoming release. With the free overnight shipping coupon found on DVDTalk's forum, i'm expecting mine on the 18th.

    Funny, when I went to use the free shipping coupon, it told me I was ineligible for some reason. So I used the 20% off coupon instead, since it came to the same $6 off.
    When I got to the next-to-last screen before submission, it STILL allowed me to get a free upgrade to overnight shipping!
    So, naturally, I took them up on it! [​IMG]

    I used the 25% off coupon (CF25B2) and it also gave me a free Overnight shipping upgrade. Sweet! [​IMG]

    Does anyone know if this will be carried at B&Ms or if it's an online-only set?

    FWIW, this was not shipped with Paramount's other 9/24 screeners.
    Dosn't look good.

    Thanks for the coupons guys! 3 dvd's for under $29 with overnight shipping is fantastic. I just wish the History dvd wasn't cancelled, but this helps a bit.
