Early this past January we had great news for Duckman
fans, passing along a report
that CBS DVD's Executive VP and General Manager Ken Ross had gotten his group together to "wrap our brains around figuring a way
" to begin releasing the classic adult-targeted animated series on DVD at long last, sometime in 2008.
A couple of days later we were able to bring you confirmation
, direct from show creator Everett Peck, that "...it's true! My agent and I have been working closely with CBS to get this to happen. It looks like initial release will be seasons one and two. There will be some value added material but I'm not quite sure how that will shape up at this point."
The Duckman - Seasons 1 and 2
DVD set has been announced this morning for release on September 16th
. This will be 22 episodes (13 for the first season, and another nine for the second) being presented on disc in full screen video, and with English Stereo Surround audio. Unfortunately, no other information was available with this morning's quick heads-up announcement. Stay tuned, though, and we'll hopefully be back in the not-too-distant future with more details, including extras and cover art!
Paramount has just sent over a look at the packaging for this release. I think this is exactly what everyone would have been hoping for!
