    I was watching Adult Swim on Cartoon Network Sunday night... Their new format has white blurbs of text against a black background with some funky music playing over it.
    One of these blurbs said the SG:C2C episodes have been editted down to 11 minutes so that they can fit into the "Willams Street Hour" along with Sealab 2021, Aqua Teen, etc. But it goes on to say that some guy in marketing told them the original versions will be released on DVD in the fall.

    It was hard to tell if they were serious or not, but I thought I'd pass it on anyway.

    If the episode was the 'commentary' version of Kentucky Nightmare (with Willie Nelson and the shark), the part about the DVD is a joke.

    If not, GREAT NEWS!

    Edit: I see from the schedule that the episode shown was "Warren". Looks promising for a DVD release!

    The comment wasn't made during the show, but between shows... during one of the new Adult Swim promo spots.

    I have several dozen eps on tape, but stopped keeping up eventually. Length varies...most could hit 11 minutes if they remove the opening (of course, I love the openings). Some are only about 11 minutes including the credits.

    I've got my fingers crossed for a big, fat DVD set with many episodes in the first volume.

    I really hope that the info about Space Ghost Coast 2 Coast coming to DVD is true because if it is true then this is excellent news. Space Ghost Coast 2 Coast is one of my favorite Cartoon Network Shows.

    Same here, I'll gladly pay for full season sets.

    Same goes for Sealab 2021 and Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

    I too read this semi-announcement on Adult Swim. I hope it's on the up-and-up.

    All the Williams Street shows on dvd would be amazingly cool releases. I can't get enough of Sealab, and I've been watching Space Ghost C2C for almost ten years now (wow!).

    An aside - I remember reading an article in a magazine (name escapes me now) about the Williams Street crew. As an aspiring creative type, let me tell you, that would be a dream job.

    Got more news about the upcoming Space Ghost DVD.
    This comes from an IGN interview with Mike Lazzo.

    Mike says the first set will have all the episodes in order, from Number 1, all the way to 'Explode'.

    So based on this, here are the episodes that should be featured on the set:

    01A - Spanish Translation
    01B - Gilligan
    01C - Elevator
    01D - CHiPS
    01E - Bobcat
    01F - Banjo
    01G - Punch
    01H - Batmantis
    01I - Self Help
    01J - The Mask
    01K - Gum, Disease
    01L - A Space Ghost Christmas
    02 - President's Day Nightmare
    11 - Story Book*
    12 - Girlie Show
    13 - Hungry
    14 - Fire Drill
    15 - Le Livre D'Histoire
    16 - Sleeper
    17 - Jerk
    18 - Urges
    19 - Explode

    * There are no missing episodes, rather the production codes changes to reflect the numerical order of the episodes.

    This first set is actually about a season and a half, as Mike said, and I've heard from other sources that the mini-specials such as '01J - The Mask' will be included.

    No word on anything feature wise, or a solid date. However, this is very exciting for me, and I can't wait.

    Evan Dorkin, one of the writers, has written in his blog that he has recently done commentaries for several episodes, so it sounds like this will be a full-blown SE of some kind. How cool is that? [​IMG]

    Oh, and Milk & Cheese is a classic [​IMG] I remember back in the mists of time, before man could talk or think, when it used to run weekly in The Onion. I wish they'd pick it back up again.

    I'm excited to see this set. Space Ghost is one of the defining parts of my college experience. Well, Space Ghost and beer. Okay, a whole bunch of stuff, but there was nothing like rounding up a couple of friends in the middle of frenzied paper-writing to take a break and bask in the craziness of Space Ghost and co.

    So I guess they're marketing these DVDs as the Adult Swim collection. Kinda sucks, because I plan to only buy the Space Ghost discs.

    They may be marketing it as the Adult Swim Collection, but it still looks like each show is available separately (i.e. "2-disc special edition set").

    Just give me Sealab, Harvey Birdman, and Aqua Teens and I will be happy. Home Movies if it is possible too.

    Of course I am buying SGC2C, but I may buy Aqua Teen just to help the chances of Sealab coming out!
