Is the series giving itself a promotion?
Yesterday, Dawn of the Discs, a twitter feed that reports on physical TV and movie releases, posted a tweet stating that the 1993 slapstick series would be getting a Blu-Ray release at some point in the future. Dawn of the Discs sourced this via a deleted tweet from Milton Knight:
Knight worked on the series creating art for the characters, backgrounds, and storyboards. We don’t have any way to confirm the authenticity of the removed tweet, but the sketch itself does reflect a scene in the original pilot:
As with any rumor, take it with a grain of salt. WildBrain, the current owner of the series, has not made any official announcements, and screenshots from deleted tweets are far from official sources. If real, the series would most likely follow the recent trend of compiling SD resolution video onto Blu-Ray, using the massive storage as a way to press far fewer discs.
The original US DVD box sets first released in 2007 by Shout Factory. The majority of the series is currently available via WildBrain’s official YouTube channel and Paramount Plus.
