that "Gummi Bears", "TaleSpin", "Darkwing Duck", "Bonkers", "Aladdin",
"Timon & Pumbaa", and "The Mighty Ducks" will have at least one DVD
set available by the end of 2008. In the case of "Teamo Supremo",
though, I suppose that would take longer; the show wasn't very popular
for some reason (I myself say that it was a good show, it just came
out at the wrong time), and I think it would be more logical for them
to wait till it earns a big enough fanbase to justify DVD releases. I
myself can wait, seeing as I've already taped every "Teamo" episode
there is and can just put them on DVD+Rs myself (I have a DVD recorder).
Anyway, I'm only guessing that it'll take till the end of 2008 for all
the Disney Afternoon shows to come to DVD. Disney's TV show DVD sets
are currently focusing on more than just the Disney Afternoon shows,
so it'll probably be longer than that. Here's a list of the Disney
shows currently (or about to become) available in DVD sets, counting
"The Muppet Show"
"Five Mile Creek"
"The Golden Girls"
"Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers"
"Boy Meets World"
"Life as We Know It"
So, as you can see, they've already got quite a lot of shows to finish
releasing. As far as I know, they've already finished "Fantastic Four"
and "Life as We Know It", seeing how these shows both had a small
enough amount of episodes for a "Complete Series" set.
On the subject of the DVDs themselves, I'm a bit surprised they picked
"Goof Troop" and "Quack Pack" to be the next Disney Afternoon shows to
go to DVD. I would've expected either "TaleSpin", "Gummi Bears", or
"Darkwing". Anyway, seeing as the upcoming DVDs for "Goof Troop" and
"Quack Pack" are single-disc releases going for $15, I'll assume
they'll have 13 episodes, as both shows' episode amounts were a
multiple of that number (65 for the former and 39 for the latter), and
also because that's how many episodes were on the semi-recent DVD of
the second season of the old "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".
And by the way, I'm also aware that the first half of the second
season of "Gargoyles" will be out next month. What I'm wondering is,
will they bother releasing the show's third season, which all the fans
hated? I don't know if I should be surprised whether or not they will
