so if you wanted the best quality of whats available now what do you need to buy?
Thanks Laurence. I actually pulled out my book on the Rascals last night and did a little research, then built a spreadsheet that cross-references all of the characters to the shorts they appeared in, and which volume on the current VHS sets that those shorts appear on.:b I'm gonna have a Chubby marathon real soon.
I could say something here, but decorum must prevail!
can someone post a pic, or the barcode for this new release
I was hoping that somebody would say something.
no help on the new disc art?
The Amazon link that I posted earlier has the art. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...&s=dvd&n=507846

Does anyone remember the name (and if its available) an episode where they are running a taxi? And something happens where it goes down a hill causing all kinds of havoc. With tires coming down and a boxing glove on a rectractable arm. Thanks!
Thanks Conrad. Is it available on the Lion's Gate releases? And to show how timeless these shows are. My father got my daughters (ages 10 & 8) into the Little Rascals.
Todd, It will be on the new Lion's Gate release.
Well, I've given up - I'm now beginning to transfer all the laserdiscs over to DV tape, then convert to DVDs from there. Most likely, I'll archive the MPEG2 files, and once Blu-Ray authoring is situated, I'm sure I'll be able to get the entire four box sets on laserdisc onto a 50GB Blu-Ray disc. It's just frustrating that these films have been neglected for so long. There has to be money in the Rascals, otherwise, why would every company and their mother release discs. What gets me is all the bootlegs and re-releases are the SAME films over and over and over again. It's like no one is tapping the other box sets that Cabin Fever released.
Like the R1 neglect of the Laurel & Hardy Roach films, and the Sony indifference to the Three Stooges, it's a crime that these beloved Our Gang comedies have been ignored. The updating of this thread comes at an ironic time, as I've just dusted off my 21 Cabin Fever VHS cassettes and have been giving them a run. The world needs The Little Rascals done properly on DVD.
I just wished I could find The Little Rascals, Volume 3 laserdisc set before I die. I have the Cabin Fever dvd box set and the volume 4 LD set, but 3 eludes me.
Yikes...sorry...just checked, I don't have an extra. I have one season 1 and one season 3, but have two season 2s and two season 4s.
Those four laser disc sets are great in that they contain all of the Our Gang shorts that were withdrawn from the syndicated TV package back in the early seventies. Do any of these LD sets ever turn up on E-Bay? http://greenbriarpictureshows.blogspot.com/
Interpret it as you choose, but from "www.littlerascals.net" there is a post that Laughsmith will release Our Gang. Not sure of the details, but might be positive.
I'm wondering if the Laughsmith set will be predominantly composed of the silent Our Gang comedies, being as how many of Laughsmith's prime contributors are members of the self-described "silent mafia." While I definitely pine for more of the 30s' output, I'm just as interested in the silent films, since basically all of my knowledge of those comes from Leonard Maltin's Rascals book and the handful of shorts mixed in with the Cabin Fever sets. Also, from the Laurel & Hardy newsgroup comes this bit of info straight from the mouth of Laughsmith: I'd buy any and all comedy sets they put out. Their Arbuckle and Industrial Strength Keaton sets are tremendous. Evan
I second the endorsement of Laughsmith DVD's. They've done amazing work with Arbuckle and Keaton --- I expect their silent Our Gang box to be another triumph for them. http://greenbriarpictureshows.blogspot.com/
