* The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 3 (ClassicFlix)
$39.99 SRP Blu-ray

—–Remastered, uncut, and beautifully restored, now you can see The Little Rascals like never before! With restorations so glorious, it will be like watching these iconic shorts for the first time! From 1929 to 1931, Hal Roach’s “Our Gang” series showcasing scruffy but lovable kids was among the studio’s biggest successes in the new era of sound. But in 1932, the franchise would introduce one of the most beloved and durable members of the gang in George “Spanky” McFarland – so named because of his mother’s constant admonitions of “Mustn’t touch! Spanky, spanky!” Director James Horne, having shot a reel’s worth of test footage of the youngster (later recycled in Spanky [1932]), showed it to anyone and everyone on the Roach lot, and shortly afterward, “Spanky” made his modest debut in Free Eats (1932). But Roach, recognizing the cuteness and natural talent of McFarland, immediately promoted the three-year-old to major player status by titling the next short after the tot and using his allure for maximum mirth in classic outings like The Pooch, Hook & Ladder, and Birthday Blues…all made in 1932, and all included in this set. The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 3 contains the next 11 Our Gang sound shorts produced by Roach at the dawn of the “talkie era”: Readin’ and Writin’ (1932) to Forgotten Babies (1933) – with each short newly scanned and restored from original Hal Roach 35mm film elements. A must-have for any true Our Gang fan, Volume 3 features the talents of Dickie Moore, Bobby “Wheezer” Hutchins, Dorothy DeBorba, Matthew “Stymie” Beard, Kendall “Breezy Brisbane” McComas, and of course, George “Spanky” McFarland. This volume also includes a special treat with Our Gang alums Mickey Daniels, Mary Kornman, Joe Cobb and Allen “Farina” Hoskins featured in Fish Hooky (1933)!

—–Celebrate 50 years with this new updated limited edition version with added bonus features! On September 12, 1970, at the height of the Saturday-Morning TV mania, Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp first aired on ABC, and television was never the same again. Making a mockery of everything from the Secret Agent craze to variety shows and music videos, the creators of Lancelot Link took the impossibly bold step and made a TV series CAST ONLY WITH ACTUAL CHIMPANZEES! The suave Lancelot Link and his partner, Mata Hairi, are top agents at the Agency to Prevent Evil (APE), a secret organization led by Commander Darwin that protects the world from wrongdoers. APE’s chief nemesis, the nefarious Baron Von Butcher, leads CHUMP, the Criminal Headquarters for the Underworld Master Plan, an evil league bent on world conquest. Assisting the diabolical Baron is a band of unforgettable bad apes including Creto, Wang Fu, the Duchess, Dragon Lady, Ali Assa Seen, and Dr. Strangemind. It’s been 50 years since that fateful day when Lancelot Link literally changed the face of television forever, and it’s as shockingly hilarious and mind-bendingly absurd today as it was when it first aired on Saturday morning TV. Standing alone in its class because nothing else quite like it exists, prepare yourself for the miraculous impossibility of Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp! 4-disc set.
