In this June 4th news
we told you that Image Entertainment was releasing a companion DVD on the same day as Universal's The Munsters - The Complete 1st Season
Now the August 24th release of The Munsters: America's First Family of Fright
from Image has been cancelled. Not postponed, but outright cancelled. The company did not give us a reason. However, a reader who only identified himself as "Mike" told us today that when he e-mailed Image and asked about the disc, he was told that "Unfortunately Image Entertainment no longer owns the distribution rights to (it)."
Our thanks to Stephen Strong of ClassicTVHits.com for first bringing this to our attention. As disappointing as the cancellation may be to hard-core fans of the show, at least the episodes themselves are still on-the-way for DVD release that same day. So look up, and look out for that in just a few weeks.
