my two cents 1000

Okay… this one has me excited: Shout! Factory has just set Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids: The Complete Series for release on DVD on 6/15 (SRP $119.99).  The 15-disc DVD box set will include all 110 episodes of the series along with a 16-page book.  Extras will include audio commentary with Bill Cosby and the all-new Hey, Hey, Hey… It’s The Story of Fat Albert documentary (featuring a new interview with Cosby).  The booklet will also feature an essay by Dr. Gordon Berry, who was the show’s educational advisor.  I really dug that show when I was a kid, so this should be a treat.

“Hey Albert, that’s N.C.”

“N.C.?”

“No Class!”

You can see the cover artwork below.

Also today, Lionsgate has set Spring Breakers for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 7/9.

Anchor Bay will release The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse on Blu-ray and DVD on 6/18.

Arrow Video has delayed the worldwide Blu-ray and DVD release of Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath until 5/13.  Adjust your plans accordingly.  The disc will include the “original Italian version of the film and the re-edited, re-dubbed and re-scored American version, together and fully restored for the first time anywhere in the world, along with a host of special features, bonus material and exclusive artwork.”  You can watch a clip of one of the special features from the disc here.  Meanwhile, Bava’s Baron Blood is still set for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 4/29.
