Earlier this month we reported that MPI Home Video's release of The Rich Little Show - The Complete Series will become available starting February 15th. At the time the only other info we had about this release of NBC's variety show from the mid-'70s was a cost: $29.98 SRP. Today MPI released further details, plus cover art. Here's a copy-and-paste of the studio's description of the title, followed by the front of the box. What that description neglects to mention is that this 4-DVD title not only include ~720 minutes' worth of episodes, but is also "Loaded with never-before-seen Special Features." The details of those extras haven't been revealed yet, but stay tuned for that. In the meantime, here's what we have for you so far:
    Known as America's greatest impressionist and a regular on the classic Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, the legendary Rich Little is a genius at altering his voice to mimic such icons as John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, Johnny Carson, Jack Benny, Groucho Marx and dozens more.

    On THE RICH LITTLE SHOW (1975-1976, NBC-TV), the comic great presents some of the most hilarious sketches in variety show history. Joining Rich is a parade of television and music stars such as Andy Griffith, Bill Cosby, Ron Howard, Susan St. James, Michael Landon, Bob Hope, Freddie Prinze, William Conrad, Bing Crosby, The Hudson Brothers, Bernadette Peters, Chad Everett, Sandy Duncan, Mel Torme, Starsky & Hutch stars David Soul and Paul Michael-Glaser, plus series regular Charlotte Rae (The Facts Of Life).

    Highlights include parodies of '70s TV favorites Columbo, Happy Days and Welcome Back Kotter (with Michael Jackson), Rich playing Peter Sellers' infamous Inspector Clouseau, Charlotte Rae as a shoe-store customer with a foot fetish, Sherman Hemsley (The Jeffersons) as the Soul Fairy, Bill Bixby (The Incredible Hulk) as a bionic husband, Rich and Betty White portraying the President and First Lady, and a parody of The Hollywood Squares with original host Peter Marshall.

    Among the hit song performances are Rhinestone Cowboy by Glen Campbell, Boogie Fever by The Sylvers, Junk Food Junkie by Larry Groce, Convoy by C.W. McCall and Forever Came Today by The Jackson Five.
