FROSTBITE FALLS, Minn., Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- And now, here's something we hope you'll really like! On January 4th, 2011, Classic Media, a global media company with a portfolio of some of the world's leading family entertainment brands, and Bullwinkle Studios, announced the release of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends™: The Complete Series on DVD in a collectible edition box set ($99.98 SRP).
Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series is the first-ever complete collection of the classic animated TV series, with all 163 squirrely episodes of the famous Moose and Squirrel, along with other fan favorites, Boris & Natasha, Peabody's Improbable History, Fractured Fairy Tales, Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties, and Aesop and Son. That's the whole shebang—91 trips in the W.A.B.A.C. time machine, 39 attempts to catch Snidely Whiplash, and 50 bits of wisdom from Mr. Know-it-All.
Hokey Smoke! In addition, the 18-disc collection includes a number of special features, such as "Goof Gas Outtake" (a.k.a. "The Longest Laugh in History"), an on-camera interview with actress June Foray (a.k.a. the voice of Rocky), and more. There are also collectibles, including Frostbite Falls Field Guide to a Moose, a Squirrel and a Royal Canadian Mountie, by Keith Scott, and a "Loyal Viewer" award.
Heralded by TV Guide® as one of the best television shows of all time, Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends is also considered one of the most original and groundbreaking television programs in history. When the series debuted in 1959, no person or organization was safe from Bullwinkle & Company's satire—from the United States government and Russian spies, to world leaders, network censors, Hollywood celebrities and more.
"My Dad would be ecstatic with the release of the Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series box set," said Tiffany Ward, daughter of the visionary producer, the late Jay Ward. "He would have said that this is an incredible opportunity to corrupt a whole new generation!"
"We are very excited to bring fans the first-ever Complete Series box set of Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends," said Robert Mayo, SVP & General Manager, US Home Entertainment, Classic Media. "The box set includes exciting special features and collectibles that fans—of all generations—will enjoy."
