2 months ago that Sid & Marty Krofft Enterprises ("SMK"), along with distributor Vivendi Enterprises, had begun preparing a September 28th
DVD release of "Sid & Marty Krofft's Greatest Saturday Morning Hits!
." This single-disc title includes one beloved episode each of H.R Pufnstuf, Lidsville, Sigmund the Sea Monster, Bugaloos, Electra Woman & Dyna Girl, Wonderbug
and Bigfoot & Wild Boy
...plus bonus material in the form of all-new interviews with Marty Krofft and stars of their most popular shows, and a never-before-seen pilot episode of first Krofft production. It's all available for $14.93 SRP, and you can pre-order it
at a discount. We're still waiting on cover art, so stay tuned for that!
In the meantime, this week's issue of trade journal Agent DVD
has an article
about the future of SMK/Vivendi releases. At the 2010 Comic Con, held this past weekend, Marty Krofft was reported to have said that "A new compilation DVD will be released every three to four months.
" The article also has this interesting quote about the upcoming home video plans: "Vivendi will focus on creating collectible sets with all-new, exclusive, never-before-seen content. Marty said the discs will include commentaries and such collectible items as a Pufnstuff bobblehead and a replica of the original tin lunchboxes featuring Krofft characters.
" Neat! We'll keep our eyes out for additional information, of course, so stay tuned.
