California Raisins - We Heard It Through the Grapevine: The 1989 Animated Series Comes to DVD!


2-disc set with all 13 episodes of the program, plus 2 TV specials and 4 ads

In 1986, America met "The California Raisins," the singing-and-dancing Claymation creation of Will Vinton Studios under the direction of an advertising firm who was trying to market the likability of the fruit on behalf of the California Raisin Advisory Board. The concept proved so popular that it went beyond the realm of a multi-spot ad campaign and into the world of TV specials, leading up to a 13-episode animated series on CBS Saturday mornings in 1989, simply called "California Raisins" (a.k.a. "The California Raisin Show").

Yesterday our friends at The Digital Bits website reported that on November 15th a studio known as Hen's Tooth Video will release The California Raisins Collection, a 2-DVD set that includes all 13 episodes of the television series. Also on board will be the 1988 primetime special "Meet the Raisins!," and the 1990 primetime special "Raisins: Sold Out." You will also get 4 classic commercial spots featuring the Raisins.

Amazon.com has begun taking pre-orders for this title, offering it at a discount from the $24.95 SRP. They show the running time as 353 minutes, but that's the only other detail offered there. Box art isn't available yet, either. Stay tuned, however, and we'll update you just as soon as we can!
