In out last post, I lamented the lack of any official word about the coming of the BATMAN (1966) TV series to official, non-bootleg, Warner Bros DVD, beyond an initial and isolated Tweet by Conan O’Brien. HERE.
|"You think YOU'VE got it tough, Conan... Try being a TEN YEAR OLD KID on TV every week since the late eighties! Losing THE TONIGHT SHOW's a snap compared to that!"|
And, in keeping with that “immediate gratification thing” concerning Batman DVDs, commenter “Rusty” informed me that Warner DID include a significant mention of BATMAN (1966) DVDs in an announcement made last week – just one day AFTER my Blog post wondering why there was no word from Warner.
Oddly, they DON'T explicitly reference the 1968 Filmation series in the announcement! Go fig!
|"Holy Rain Check, Batman! Let's get to the retailer of our choice, before it's SOLD OUT!"|
I kinda like having Warner make announcements in response to my Blog posts… So, while I’m on a roll I’ll ask where Seasons 2-4 of THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SHOW are.
(…And, what the hey, while we’re at it… the Hanna-Barbera ABBOTT AND COSTELLO and LAUREL AND HARDY cartoons, too!)
All the Tex Avery MGM cartoons.
Completing TAZ-MANIA and THE SYLVESTER AND TWEETY MYSTERIES.
Where are the color theatrical POPEYEs?
And more LOONEY TUNES – and the continuation of the LOONEY TUNES and TOM AND JERRY Blu-ray series!
|Let's hope it's NOT "The End" for all these!|
