    I do not envy the folks who have to come up with fresh themed press release copy for each new volume.

    Wait a minute, yes I do. I’d love to work for Shout! Factory.

    I like it very much.

    Sampo: Ditto on #2/@AFFA and #3/Cornjob. Mad ups on those posts. I plan to pre-order and would love to do so in a way that tosses some shekels in the site’s direction. Please alert the masses–you know: the Mitchells, the Cabots, the Ortegas–of our option when it is available. You and Erhardt do great work.

    Daddy-O is one I’ve been waiting for for years. I first saw it on VHS tape a friend gave me years ago and loved it, especially the “Hike Your Pants Up” segment. I practically wore the tape out rewatching that bit. I have to admit that I’m not usually a fan of the B&W episodes, especially if they don’t have monsters, but Daddy-O is great.

    Only reason for me is the Alphabet Antics short on Daddy-O and Speech short on Earth Vs., but think they’re both already on the Shorts collections. I can get my fix of Lip & Tongue Action there, if necessary.

    Okay, I’m in but for those in the know can anyone say why these particular episodes seemingly caused such a delay in the Shout announcements? Arkoff estate, right, but haven’t they already had some of those? Or am I just missing something obvious?

    I’ll always buy and some of these I really like (although I already have pristine copies of every episode) but I admit I was a bit surprised not to see something “major” on this list, unless they were trying for something else that didn’t make it.

    The Peter Mark Richman feature should be interesting — read his profile over at IMDb and see what an amazing renaissance man he is. Who’da thunk it, from that turkey Agent for H.A.R.M.???

    Mike @14 – That’s going to be tough to do – no deal (that we know of) with Paramount yet, Toho may never give in, and word on the street has Wade Williams and Warner Brothers fighting over the rights to Rocketship XM. At least Track of the Moon Beast is in the Public Domain (although there is still a chance that the song and score are still under copyright).

    Holy cow!!! I never would have ever guessed that we would see Daddy-O. Damn, those Shout Factory folks are amazing. Hats off to whatever invisible, unsung employee negotiates those rights!!

    Hmmmm, now that I think about it ..: that would make an interesting Ballyhoo feature – behind the scenes of what it takes to secure rights for these gems. I know it can’t be easy, and it sounds like a wild and complicated ride!

    I would love to seen an interview with Jordan Fields the DVD producer and movie rights acquisition person. You out there Mr. Fields?

    ^ I second this motion. That would be a ridiculously awesome special feature.

    Also, may I just say how glad I am that Shout! included the MST Hour Wraps for Daddy-O and Earth vs The Spider? I love how they listen to us, and actually turn our feedback and suggestions into aspects of their releases. It truly means a lot to us fans to see how dedicated they are.

    Always amazed at films that were previously believed extremely unlikely to ever reach DVD become part of a release announcement.

    Shout is an inspiring lighthouse in my ocean of crap life.


    “Rick, you need to think positive,” the willowy dame said.

    “I do, sweetheart. I’m positive my life is crap,” he replied through blue Turkish cigarette smoke.

    “Now be a doll, will you? And fetch my robot puppets. I’ve skits to reenact and whiskey to drink. Sam? Be sure and send out complimentary gambling passes to Steve Vance. Make sure you get a bottle of my favorite scotch to Daniel Griffith at Ballyhoo.”

    It was a time of war.

    Not quite on all the shorts being released on DVD.
    ‘Aquatic Wizards’ and ‘Out of This World’ were only on Shorts volume 3 on VHS (unless you were lucky enough to buy The Essentials with the limited bonus disc included) and ‘Snow Thrills’ has yet to be released at all.

    And yes, from this particular northerly pile of dung, may I also add my thanks to SHOUT! Factory for their continued efforts in fighting the good fight on behalf of all MSTies everywhere !!! :-))

    Correction: I was wrong about ‘Snow Thrills’. It is on Shout! XXIV on ‘The Sword and the Dragon’ DVD.
