$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! With the introduction of George “Spanky” McFarland to the troupe in 1932, the “Our Gang” comedies soon embarked on one of the series’ most prolific periods of mirth making. Two years later, Hal Roach was inspired to team Spanky with a loyal sidekick: precocious child actor Scotty Beckett, whose delightful comic support of “Spank” premiered in one of Our Gang’s funniest and most beloved two-reelers, Hi, Neighbor! (1934). Spanky and Scotty often functioned as a Greek chorus to the “bigger” kids in classic outings like The First Roundup, Honky-Donkey and For Pete’s Sake (all 1934). They also displayed their broad comic range and chemistry by imitating the antics of Roach’s biggest stars, Laurel and Hardy, as in Mike Fright (1934) where Scotty’s guileless “Maybe we ain’t us” earns him a withering Hardy-like stare from his pal. The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 4 contains the next 12 Our Gang sound shorts produced by Roach in the “talkie era”: The Kid from Borneo (1932) to Shrimps for a Day (1934) – with each short newly scanned and restored from original Hal Roach 35mm film elements. A must-have for any true Our Gang fan, Volume 4 features the talents of George “Spanky” McFarland, Dickie Moore, Wally Albright, Bobby “Wheezer” Hutchins, Dorothy DeBorba, Matthew “Stymie” Beard, Tommy Bond, Billie “Buckwheat” Thomas, and, of course, Scotty Beckett. SHORTS: 1933: The Kid from Borneo; Mush and Milk; Bedtime Worries; Wild Poses; 1934: Hi, Neighbor; For Pete’s Sake; The First Round-Up; Honky-Donkey; Mike Fright; Washee Ironee; Mama’s Little Pirate; Shrimps for a Day.

MTV sets premiere date for “Jersey Shore Family Vacation”

“Jerzdays” to make an epic return for the holidays on Thursday, November 19th at 8PM ET/PT with back-to-back episodes

NEW YORK, NY – (October 15, 2020) – MTV today announced that its powerhouse series “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” is set to return this holiday season with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, November 19th at 8PM ET/PT. Following an explosive season-three finale, which was the highest-rated episode since 2018, the pop-culture phenomenon returns for season four to make “Jerztory” as the world looks a little different and social distancing is the new rule.

For the first time ever, it’s “Jersey Shore ‘Bring the Family’ Vacation” as our favorite roommates take over an entire resort living their best lives in their own “Shore” bubble.

With more than 10 years of ups and downs and humor and heart, the cast has always made it out on the other side stronger than ever — until now. Angelina’s wedding and the speech heard around the world left the family fractured, leaving the boys with only one option — make the family whole again. So, DJ Pauly D takes over a resort and with the help of Mike “The Situation,” Vinny and Ronnie, they hatch a plan to reunite the girls, invite the extended family to distract them from the drama, and hope for the best. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but with this group you never know what will happen.

Leading up to the highly-anticipated season four premiere, MTV will air “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” season three recap specials on Thursday, November 5th and Thursday, November 12th at 8PM ET/PT.

“Jersey Shore Family Vacation” features housemates Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Angelina Pivarnick, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. “Jersey Shore,” which first premiered in 2009 and returned in 2018 to record ratings, is an MTV worldwide phenomenon that features such hits as “Floribama Shore,” “Geordie Shore” (UK), “Gandia Shore” (Spain), “Warsaw Shore” (Poland), “Acapulco Shore” (Mexico) and “Super Shore.”

Upcoming DVD Releases





NOW AVAILABLE (9/29):
* It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia – Season 14 (Disney/Fox)
$29.95 SRP DVD MOD

—–And the award for best… 14th Season is… It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. FXX proudly accepts this rare feat on behalf of the Gang. This is the Gang’s first nomination for Best 14th Season and first win. This award is shared by Ronald “Mac” McDonald (Rob McElhenney), Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day), Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton), Dee Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito). The 14th Season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia guns for the Best 14th Season accolade as the Gang goes to extremes for the role: Mac learns a new language, Charlie does a period piece, Dennis attempts a one-act play, Dee cuts her hair, and Frank performs a death scene. This means a lot to the Gang as it follows an extraordinary 13th Season. During that epic awards push, Mac announced his true sexual identity to his father in dramatic fashion, Dee orchestrated an all-female reboot, Dennis reunited with an old friend (his Range Rover), and the Gang epitomized underdogs as they overcame the odds to win the Super Bowl. 2-disc set.
NOTE: we’ve inquired and been informed that, per instructions from Fox, the episode “Dee Day” (third episode of the season) is NOT included on this DVD release, due to the episode’s use of black face. The discs therefore include 9 episodes in all.

Over the course of the season, the vampires will try to find their way in a world of human Super Bowl parties, internet trolls, an energy vampire who gets a promotion and becomes drunk on power, and of course all the ghosts, witches, necromancers, zombies and shadowy cloaked assassins who roam freely in the Tri-State area. Is Guillermo destined to be a vampire, or a vampire hunter? Or maybe just a familiar for the rest of his life? 2-disc set.

COMING ON 10/13:
* The Jetsons – The Complete Series: Diamond Collection (Warner)
$29.98 SRP DVD

EXTRAS: The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones movie
—–The first family of the 21st Century proves that the future ain’t what it used to be! Join George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy, and Jane, his wife, in this state-of-the-art 75-episode collection. This visionary series featured flat-screen TVs, the internet, 3D printing, holograms and smartwatches – long before they were a reality. Add Rosie the Robot, Astro the dog, and one of the best theme songs in the history of television and you have entertainment on an astronomical scale. Plus, you’ll get the animated feature The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones as a time-traveling bonus! This beloved family of the future will show you that fun is always timeless. So put on your flying suit and let’s party like it’s 2062! 8-disc set.
NOTE: at this time I (David) am going to have a mea culpa, and admit to a mistake I’ve made for a few weeks. During that time, several of our readers have tried to tell me about this item, but I’ve brushed it off. Why? Because I had confused it at various times with two other Jetsons releases! A similarly-packaged “Diamond Collection” item with ONLY THE 1ST SEASON came out on DVD format back in March 2017, and I mostly thought this was that item. Also, a bit over a year ago the Warner Archive released a Blu-ray titled as “The Complete Original Series” (we noted at the time that the Blu-ray release did NOT contain the second or third seasons which aired in syndicated between 1985 and 1987), and I got it mixed up with this at one point, too. So now, for the first time, this brand new release actually contains EVERY episode of The Jetsons (all 75 of them, from all three seasons), collected for the first time into an 8-DVD package. My thanks to every one of you who helped to set me straight. And I hope you can forgive my confusion. I plead 2020, LOL!
