All 52 episodes of the cult classic animated series from Loren Bouchard (Bob's Burgers) and Brendon Small (Metalocalypse)!
With an alcoholic soccer coach for a father figure and a woman who swears during parent/teacher conferences for an actual mother, eight-year-old Brendon Small chronicles his life as a jaded third-grader (who happens to have the brain of a twenty-something) with his video camera in order to cope with the trials of his oddly precocious life.
With fresh, insightful wit and a terrific voice cast (including Small, H. Jon Benjamin, Melissa Galsky, Janine Ditullio, and Louis C.K.,) Home Movies was an early [adult swim] success story, and remains a hilariously animated sitcom for the frustrated junior auteur inside each of us.
WAAAAY back in 2008, Shout! Factory released the Home Movies - 10th Anniversary
DVD package, a collectible set with nice bonuses included. Earlier this week, the studio reported on their social media feeds (like Instagram
) that they were selling the last few copies of this item, now out-of-print.
Today Shout! turned around and announced that the 4-season collection isn't gone forever, however. On June 27th
they will re-release it (in shelf-friendly packaging...see the cover art below) as Home Movies - The Complete Series
. The 12-DVD set will cost $59.97 SRP; it includes closed captioning and these extras:
