It’s Time for the July 2012 OVD Campaign Event!

It’s been a while since our last campaign event, but the time has come to once again rally the troops together!  Here is what we are asking each of you to do:

- On July 13-15, 2012, “share” our social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pintrest) with your friends or family on your own personal social media accounts or via e-mail.

- Sign one of our current petitions (DuckTales, Elfego Baca & The Swamp Fox, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck, The Muppet Show or Gummi Bears) if you have not done so, or share them with others.

- Then, two weeks later on July 27-29, 2012, repeat all over again!

That’s it!  This Summer, we are focusing on building up our numbers, and we need YOUR help to do it.  With stronger numbers heading into the Fall and Winter, we’ll be at a better position to sent e-mails and letters to Disney to ask for the titles we want to see released.  Thanks to everyone that helps out and to everyone else, please help.  We need everyone to pull his off.  Thanks again!

    How wonderful! I fully support your efforts whole-heartedly!! But, what about a petition for Gargoyles Season 2, Vol. 2? A LOT Of people want that and I consider it to be a part of the other Disney Afternoon series that Disney started and chose not to finish. What I don’t understand is how they can’t even do DVD on Demand like WB does so we can finish up out sets.

    I’d also like to see the film versions of the Disney Afternoon mini series because the episodes for Ducktales “Time Is Money” and Tale Spin’s Pilot have material edited out. Can we please push for this too?

    Thank you! Count me in!

    Ed, first, thanks for joining us! Let me answer your questions/ concerns the best I can. Right now, we have word that Disney Home Entertainment has “tentative plans” for the rest of “Gargoyles” for release this year. Now, we don’t have a release date or cover art, and Disney may still end up not releasing it yet. However, before we create a petition for the show, we want to see what Disney does. If it is not out (or there are no firm plans announced by then) by the end of the year, then we’ll create a petition for the show.

    As for the DVD on Demand issue, we fully agree. Sadly, Disney does not. That said, we did just get word that working with, at some point, they will start releasing tv content on the DVD on Demand format at a date unknown for now. We’ll keep everyone posted as we find more out about that.

    Finally, as for “tv movie” version of various Disney Afternoon shows, we agree, they should be out. However, the mountain we are trying to climb is so steep, we have to focus more on certain things at a time, and then after those summits have been conquered, find new places to climb. But we will keep it in mind. Thanks again, please share us with others and sign our 7 petitions if you have not done so already! Thanks!

    I had not heard that about Gargoyles. That’s welcomed news, indeed!

    The DVD on demand is a no brainer. I can’t figure out why they don’t do it. Especially when they dumped so many poor quality condition titles to DVD around 10 years ago.

    Are you aware that the Time is Money episode has footage missing? It’s on the VHS copy the same episode I taped off TV when I was a kid. It happens when the Beagle Boys throw Bubba out of the money bin. You can see the film jump cut too and it’s not a skip on my DVD.

    I think the TV movie versions should be used as a bonus feature to round out these discs. If they release them anyway then why not?

    I will sign the petitions in a bit. I’m finishing up a project at the moment and will get to it when I have my full attention.

    Do you know why Disney Movie Rewards quit carrying Season 1 and 2 of Kim Possible? Have you heard if they intend to release any of those season sets and the remaining 2 in the mainstream? A lot of people want those. I’m only asking because I had not heard that about Gargoyles. Anything new on the Disney Treasures?

      I’m sad to say that the “Disney Treasures” are 100% dead. It was Dick Cook’s pet project, and he is no longer at Disney. That said, the type of content that would have been released on the “Treasures” can still end up on DVD, just via the DVD-on-Demand releases or from the Disney Movie Club.
