This past week Mill Creek Entertainment expanded its October selections of new-to-DVD product offerings with nine additional SKUs.
Included in the mix is the Oct. 21 DVD debut of The Gift of Winter, the 1974 animated special featuring the voices of SNL alumni Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner, plus Valri Bromfield (Aykroyd’ former Second City comedy partner) and Gerry Salsberg.
Included with this animated treat — which is priced at just $9.98 — are ten additional Christmas-season themed cartoons and animated shorts — “Jack Frost,” “Snow Foolin’,” “The Candlemaker,” “Santa’s Pocket Watch,” “Hector’s Hectic Life,” “The Christmas Visitor,” “A Christmas Tree,” “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Christmas Comes But Once A Year” and “The City That Forgot About Christmas.”
Bonus features include a documentary on the making of “The Gift of Winter.”
Also added to the Oct. 21 release calendar is director Paul Mazursky’s 1984 comedy starring Robin Williams, Moscow on the Hudson. Williams was nominated for a Gold Globe for his performance … Maria Conchita Alonso is his co-star and the SRP is a fan-friendly $9.98.
For those who love Sally Field and her “high flying” late ‘60s family sitcom, Oct. 7 will see the five-disc DVD collection of The Flying Nun: The Complete First and Second Seasons landing at retailers nationwide. The SRP is a delightful $14.98.
Also added to the release schedule in October by Mill Creek Entertainment are the Oct. 14 multi-part DVD collections of Miracles: The Power of Faith and Moonshine and the Dixie Mafia.
Oct. 14 also features TV Guide Spotlight: TV's Merriest Moments, a collection of a dozen Christmas-themed TV episodes, including Bewitched: A Vision of Sugar Plums, The Cosby Show: Clair's Place and 3rd Rock From the Sun: Jolly Old St. Dick.
Lastly, Oct. 21 will see over three hours of Care Bear fun with the DVD release of Care Bears: 3 Program FUNdle! and the fitness releases of Cardio Blast and Shed 5 Fast (they come packed under Mill Creek Entertainment’s “Best Self Fitness” promotional banner and are priced at just $9.98 each).
