A few weeks ago we reported
that Shout! Factory had, ahem, nicked the rights to various classic Nickelodeon-produced animated shows, and would be putting out at retail (using the traditional manufacturing process) some series which had previously been released only through Amazon's manufacture-on-demand (MOD) program called CreateSpace. The first of these is the May 17th release of The Wild Thornberrys - Season 1
, and today we've found out that they will follow up with a June 21st
street date for Rocko's Modern Life - Season 1
Amazon's CreateSpace team's 2008 and 2009 MOD-DVD releases of the show were titled as "Best-Of
" volume sets, and not all episodes were could be found among those 3 titles. At this time we don't know for certain that Shout! Factory's general retail release is improving on that, but looking at the history of Shout!'s TV-DVD sets, and the fact that this new item is simply titled "Season 1
," it's much more likely that this will be a complete collection of all episodes from the show's first production year (no guarantees, though, as of this writing). Cost is just $19.93 SRP, and you can pre-order it from Amazon
at a discount! We'll have further details, and packaging, once the studio makes those available. Stay tuned!
