It was a relatively quite announce week for Paramount Home Media. Perhaps, just perhaps, the calm before the storm?
On the new-to-DVD release front there is the Oct. 15 four-disc debut of Gentle Ben: The Complete First Season. This family-themed series ran for two seasons — 1967/68 and 1968/69 — and was based on Walt Morey’s best-selling novel of the same name.
Gentle Ben starred Clint Howard, Dennis Weaver and the title character, a full-grown black bear … their adventures (28 episodes during this first season) took place in the Florida Everglades.
Also streeting on Oct. 15 are Blu-ray editions of The Honeymooners: Classic 39 Episodes (a six-disc collection). It took awhile, but the hi-def edition features the entire 1955/56 run of the show, plus "The Honeymooners Anniversary Special."
Also on Oct. 15 look for Spongebob Squarepants: It’s a Spongebob Squarepants Christmas … this is being released as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.
