Paramount Home Media set some long-lead announcements for the month of October this past week, which is usually a strong indicator that a recent theatrical hit (hint: they transform) will be getting a formal announcement soon (don’t “step” on the lesser title announcements is smart PR).
We zero-in this week on Oct. 10 with news that the gang from Bikini Bottom will be celebrating the DVD release of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Ninth Season … all 20 fun-packed episodes presented as a four-disc collection.
Bonus features (with more to come) include five “Krabby Patty” short films.
Comedy Central’s jumbled-character adult-themed animated comedy, Drawn Together, also arrives on Oct. 10 as a complete collection (all 36 episodes on seven-discs). The bonus here is The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, yes, Christmas! Even though it is the end of July, Paramount Home Media is positioning a four title promotion on Oct. 10 that is all-Christmas themed in nature … let’s get to them.
First up with have Frasier: Christmas Episodes, a single-disc presentation that contains all eight of the Christmas-themed episodes from the Emmy-winning comedy series.
Joining the fun on Oct. 10 are: Sabrina, The Teenage Witch: Christmas Episodes, a six-episode collection; The Honeymooners: Christmas Special, which features the Christmas-eve of 1955 broadcast “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” plus five bonus episodes, and the 1988 feature-length special, The Brady Bunch: A Very Brady Christmas (a sort of 20-year reunion featuring the children as grown adults with kids of their own).
