This past Monday we excitedly relayed Sony's announcement
that the classic TV show Bewitched
was coming to DVD on June 21st
. Two different varieties of the set will be released: one that is in the Original Black-and-White broadcast version (which is what TVShowsOnDVD recommends), and a colorized version as well for those who just can't stand watching the first season in the shades of gray it was originally produced in.
Now Sony has revealed the exact list of extras that will be included on both sets. What follows is the studio description of the set(s), plus the bonus features in the studio's words:
Elizabeth Montgomery stars as Samantha Stephens, a pretty, typical America housewife who just happens to be a witch in this beloved comedy classic. Included in this magical DVD collection is the Emmy Award-winning series' entire first season - 36 episodes that introduces on of the funniest ensemble casts in TV history. Dick York as Samantha's mortal husband Darrin, Agnes Moorehead as his witch of a mother-in-law Endora. Alice Pearce as nosey neighbor Gladys Kravitz, George Tobias as her oblivious husband Abner and Marion Lorne as dotty Aunt Clara. Join them and a who's who of '60's pop icon guest stars - Adam West, Raquel Wlech, Peggy Lipton and Arte Johnson - in this enchanting charming, and hysterically funny look at the suburban lifestyles of the witch and famous.
Bewitched Theatrical Trailer
- Featurettes: "Magic Unveiled"
- Bloopers: "Magic and Mishaps"
- Full length
The running time is 917 minutes, and language support is now noted to be English, Spanish, and Portuguese on the soundtrack, and subtitles in Spanish, Chinese,Thai, and Portuguese. Rumors have said that this level of language support is only found on the Colorized set, because it was released that way (colorized) in Japan a while back, and that the Black-and-White set only contains English. We haven't been able to confirm that with Sony; as far as we know, both sets should have the same language support. If this changes, we'll note it in the individual DVD listings here at the site.
Here now is the full-sized cover art for both versions:
