    There's that wonderful line-up of adult-oriented comedy programs on late at night on Cartoon Network called "adult swim." I love the majority of the shows -- especially the original ones. Does anyone know if there are any possible releases or who to bother (probably not Cartoon Network themselves) about getting a release?
    I'm especially looking at these titles:

    Sealab 2021
    Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law (an SE would rock)
    Home Movies
    The Brak Show
    Aquateen Hunger Force
    Mission Hill

    Any help/info/directions/news welcome. Thanks you!

    I believe in the Warner chat the other night Adult Swim was mentioned as in the works or being considered.

    That's great news. I love the Adult Swim cartoons, at least the cartoon network original ones. Seablab, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Space Ghost: Coast to Coast are just crying for DVD releases.

    Technically, Futurama and Family Guy are AS shows and are on DVD.

    Don't forget that all of the anime that AS shows is on DVD. Like Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Inu Yasha, and Lupin. [​IMG]

    I'd loooove to have Home Movies on DVD. It's such a naturally funny show.

    I'd love to see an Adult Swim line of dvds. All sixty-plus episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast*, Harvey Birdman, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Brak Show, and (oh please please, c'mon, pleeese?) Sealab 2021.

    "Because it's Bizarro!!"

    A line dedicated to the original programs (yeah, Eltingville too) would be very, very cool.


    *I'd also love it if they included some of the interviews that weren't used for the series. I remember reading that Michael J. Nelson and Tom Servo were interviewed a few years ago. I'd like to see even the raw footage of that - any new/missing MST3K stuff = hooray, in my book.

    I really want to see Space Ghost Coast To Coast & Sealab 2021 on DVD in season format. Space Ghost Coast To Coast is one of my favorite shows on Cartoon Network. I used to watch Space Ghost Coast To Coast every week when I was in High School (I graduated in 1996). I would definatly pick up Space Ghost Coast To Coast.

    And let me just say that George Lowe (voice of Space Ghost) is one of the nicest celebs I have ever met. He is just a really down-to-earth and funny guy. I spent about 30 minutes talking to him at MegaCon, 10 of which he spent covering my Space Ghost action figure with comic graphiti. If you ever get a chance, just stop and chat if you see him at a convention (I know he goes to all the ones in Florida and will be attending JACON here at UCF).

    He also mentioned that Space Ghost C2C is still under contract w/ Cartoon Network... so there is a still a possiblity for more episodes! [​IMG]

    I would kill for a Space Ghost DVD set. No really, I would be dangerous to myself and others. I could settle for paying for it, too, if necessary. "Flipmode" with Busta Rhymes made me cry in joy and pain from all the laughter. "What, and leave the eels here? That's insane!" Hee. Hee hee.

    On the subject of Adult Swim on DVD, I've found a lot of information. I hear from the official forums at adultswim.com that SGC2C and ATHF DVDs are in the works.

    Here's a quote about the ATHF DVD:

    We still, in all of our computer stores, keep at least one monitor with a PVR version of "YZZERDD.COM" episode running. That thing makes me laugh every single time..

    Cartoon Planet likely would only be on DVD in the form of the bumpers.

    No way, I want whole episodes of Cartoon Planet just as I saw them aired right after SGC2C.
