    Flipper only ran 3 seasons. I wonder where they got the information from for their press release. Makes you wonder what kind of company this is when they can't even get a simple thing like how long the show ran correct.

    That's one of those bittersweet announcements . . . it's great to see the series released, but series star Brian Kelly passed away last year so I'd guess that if any interviews or commentaries were to be included, it would probably come down to co-star Luke Halpin. In any event, "Flipper" brings back a lot of happy memories for me and I'm delighted to see that it's getting a Region 1 release.

    Great news. 3 questions come to mind right away: 1) Will they be un-cut? 2) Can we get them from the normal Canada outlets (Amazon CA, etc) 3) What's the release date, or did I miss that at TSoD? I missed it at TSoD....Oct 06. I got thrown a little on it since there's no exact date on the post.

    "Makes you wonder what kind of company this is when they can't even get a simple thing like how long the show ran correct."

    If they looked up the info in a reference book such as "The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network TV Shows," they found that "Flipper" ran from Sept. 19, 1964 to Sept. 1, 1968 -- so that looks like four seasons.

    Actually, after leaving NBC in September of 1967, it returned in January of 1968 for another 8 months. The return run was all repeats, so there really were only three seasons of new episodes, but technically it's possible to say the show ran four seasons without really being incorrect about it.

    You know, I have a saying that I like to impart - Research is great but knowledge is better. It's really good to be able to look things up, as apparently this company did, but it's no substitute for actually knowing something.

    I have 3 Flippers on VHS recorded off Nick years ago. At least they're favorites...Bud goes aboard the pirate ship, Sandy and Bud buy the boat, and Sandy's friends are fishing where they shouldn't be.

    I also have the 2 films that got pretty decent releases.

    This is one of my most wanted TV shows. I truly hope the DVD set makes it out and in the US market.
